Carolina Panthers: 5 players who stood out in first preseason game

Carolina Panthers: 5 players who stood out in first preseason game”

I thought Tom played the game pretty resiliently, too, last night. Tonight's game will be followed by exhibition games with the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints - who had trained for the three previous years in White Sulphur Springs - and the Dallas Cowboys.

According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, no one within the Panthers organization seems all that concerned about Newton's minor setback. Byrd scored two TDs and had 98 yards receiving in Carolina's 27-17 win over Houston.

Christian McCaffrey. Outside of Cam, he's been the most talked about player in camp.

Houston already has suffered one major injury in camp as starting receiver Will Fuller broke his collarbone and will miss 2-3 months. He didn't throw his first post-surgery football until the last week of June. "I've got to stay hungry and continue to work".

Newton will not play in the preseason opener.

We are halfway through Panthers training camp. However, Savage could see a few more snaps since he has only made two starts in his three-year career. Offensive coordinator George Godsey is gone, following a 29th overall finish in total yards a year ago.

"He's a smart player, an instinctive player", Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. O'Brien hopes to use the film as a teaching tool to prepare the team and correct mistakes. So if a starting quarterback is someone actually worthy of starting - a quarterback who earned the job because of how good he is, not because of how bad his competition is - then there are not 32 starting quarterbacks in the NFL. There are probably a couple of things that we could've done differently. Just for Week 1 of the preseason. Miller managed to get those three yards back on the following drive but a two yard completion to Braxton Miller was the only other positive play, resulting in another punt.

The Texans committed 12 penalties on their first-quarter touchdown drive, however, signaling that the team and Watson both have a way to go if they intend to dominate during the regular season.

Now. Can he hold onto THIS first-string anointment?

"Cam's been throwing", Rivera said on Monday. "If they go out there and if they play well, maybe we'll take them out".

After Tuesday's practice, Cutler told reporters who asked about his shoulder: "It's good, it's good". The moral of the story, as always, is I am an idiot.

"It'll come back quickly", Cutler said.

The Texans traveled to Bank of America Stadium to take on the Panthers for both team's first preseason game. NFL Network is televising it live.

Dres Anderson was by far the biggest surprise of the opening game. The biggest favorites right now are the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the San Francisco 49ers as four-point chalk on Friday.
