The Carolina Panthers are one of the most active NFL teams on the playing field for this year’s league. And with so much action over a few months, it’s important to get the best and most relevant news for the Panthers as soon as you can.
This article will cover news highlights for the Panthers over the past few weeks to help you keep up-to-date with the team.
The “Process Blue” Jersey Makes For a Brighter Panther
For many Panther fans, the 2023 NFL draft is an exciting period to keep an eye out on their team, from training sessions, press releases, and roster predictions. However, that alone is not enough for the new anticipation from the Panthers.
Interestingly enough, their new color change stirred up the social media space. Or should we say the new hue for Panther’s jerseys? The NFL shop has announced that there will be a hue change from the default blue jersey to a “process blue” team color palette. This change adds silver accents to the overall design while keeping the iconic logo and other familiar gear elements.
Many fans and enthusiasts thought the new change was a fresh look at the competitive Panthers; the striking new palette complements the overall design. It’s not to say that the previous pattern is a bad shade of blue for the Panthers; it’s more of an upgrade, and as social media is concerned, many are impressed and favor the upgrade.
Still, many would ask if the team would wear them in their official games. We still haven’t determined whether they’ll wear it and for how long. But one thing is certain for most: the new hue makes for an attractive and colorful Panther.
Bryce Young: A Hot Potential For NFL Drafts
Bryce Young looks promising with his recent performances from his week one tune-up. Despite losing against the Lions in a 26-17 score, Bryce did his part by achieving 7 out of 12 passes within 70 plus yards and a touchdown as the icing on the cake.
Additionally, Young deserves the praise for leading his two possession drives, with the second leading to a TD pass- a 16-yard throw from Young to receiver Adam Thielen, resulting in an initial 10-0 lead in favor of the Panthers. This promising rookie from Alabama also showcased his pocket awareness through two first downs and a 21-yard scrambling moment.
Panthers Waive Fresh Platers To Complete Roster
The Panthers made some major roster adjustments by cutting 11 players this month to get to a 53-player roster. The notable waived players include CB Rejzohn Wright, Safety Collin Duncan, and Lineman Antwuan Jackson.
These moves have reduced the current roster drafts to 79. This means they have at least 20 more moves before the deadline to fit the initial 53-man roster. Head coach Reich shared that the whole ordeal was a difficult decision during the conference.
Still, anyone would agree that behind a good team is a combination of teamwork and getting the right people in, which involves making tough choices.
Eddy Piñeiro’s Potential Comeback
Good news for Panthers and sports fans looking forward to the NFL spreads and betting events: Eddy Piñeiro is eyeing a comeback after his recent foot injury this season.
The Panthers’ starting kicker was temporarily relieved from practices after recovering from a recent minor strain in his groin during training. But to convince the trainers to get him back on the roster, he needs to get back to his peak performance and catch up on performance points.
Piñeiro also added that the said injury is manageable with ample rest and is expected to get back to peak physical health. Fortunately, the team fully supports his recovery, with head coach Reich remaining optimistic throughout the recovery process. There’s a great possibility that he’ll put Piñero on the field by September.
For now, Piñeiro’s replacement, Matthew Wright, has performed excitingly in their recent match against NY Giants. But aside from Piñero, the team has other recovering athletes hoping to get back on track:
- Laviska Shenault Jr. with Concussion injury
- Damiere Byrd on his Hamstrings
- Terrace Marshall Jr. on an undetermined back injury
Probable replacements like Adam Thielen and Jonathan Mingo remain in shape for the next preseason games, ready to take the role.
Kamu Grugier-Hill’s Heart Close to Hawaii
Kamu Grugier-HIll is helping Hawaiian communities against the recent wildfire. He was born and raised in Hawaii before joining the Panthers, and his familiar ties with the state and bond with his community ignited his passion to reach out and offer support.
Because of this, the Carolina Panthers worked with Kamu to raise the cause. So, in the upcoming games, Kamu will make efforts to raise awareness for Hawaii and help his community recover.
New Jersey colors, controversial cuts, and upcoming comebacks—these news keep the Panthers as the hot topic of the mid-season events. Still, with more news comes even more questions. What should we expect from the starters and potential QBs? Can other injured players recover fast enough to enter the lineups?
Nevertheless, we can only expect the unexpected and keep an eye out for the Panthers, especially in the coming months.
