What are some of the main things we learned from Week 2 of Carolina Panthers’ training camp ahead of the new season?

Week 2 of training camp for the Carolina Panthers is in the books. The roster finally managed to get into full-speed practices on Friday. And this is another big step in their preparations ahead of the new season.

Everything seems to be going according to plans regarding the NFL’s desire to start the season on time. This is an ever-changing situation as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the country. But the Carolina Panthers and others across the league have been meticulous in making things as safe as possible for players and coaching staff at camp.

This is arguably the most intriguing season in recent memory upcoming for the Panthers. Leading figures such as Cam Newton, Trai Turner, Greg Olsen, and Luke Kuechly are no longer around. And it will be left to those remains on the roster to stand up and be counted during a tough-looking schedule.

Carolina’s coaching staff will not have much time to implement their way of thinking. And the lack of preseason games before their season opener against the Las Vegas Raiders only heightens their urgency during team drills.

It promises to be a rollercoaster ride for the Panthers’ fanbase next season. There is just no telling how this group is going to come together in a short space of time. And they find themselves in an unforgiving NFC South division that boasts two legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

Despite this year’s training camp being far different, there are still some important things we learned from Week 2. Here are the five biggest things we took away.
