What are some of the big things we learned from Week 3 of Carolina Panthers’ training camp ahead of the new season?

The action is heating up in no uncertain terms at training camp for the Carolina Panthers. We are now less than a month away from their season opener against the Las Vegas Raiders, which will bring an end to one of the more eventful offseason periods in recent memory.

This will come as a welcome relief given the substantial changes made throughout the Carolina Panthers in recent months. New head coach Matt Rhule faces a daunting challenge during his first year at the helm. But expectations are relatively low for a group that will not see competitive action until the first week of the campaign.

It is not an ideal situation for any NFL team. The Panthers could be hit hardest by a lack of preseason games due to the number of fresh faces trying to make their way with the organization. And just how much they build chemistry during the remainder of camp will ultimately determine whether they can hit the ground running.

There is little availability for your average fan at this year’s camp. COVID-19 health concerns continue to be a cause for serious concern across the country and Carolina is doing everything in its power to ensure a safe environment for staff and roster members to thrive.

The Panthers’ social media team has done a great job of providing highlights on various channels. Players have also been very forthcoming in speaking to the media which has also proved insightful for the team’s fanbase.
