Quick hits from Monday morning’s walk-thru for the Carolina Panthers:

•Panthers confirm that NT Ron Edwards will look to have surgery on his torn triceps. No timetable on a return, and no announcement of Edwards being placed on IR.

•Sione Fua, rookie DT from Stanford, has seen extensive action over the past week and had shown flashes. Don’t be surprised if head coach Ron Rivera utilizes Fua at the NT position in Edwards’ place.

•WR David Gettis, who has been out with a hamstring, could practice Monday night, according to team sources. Gettis lacks some physicality, but has the straight-line speed that fits this offensive scheme.

•DE Greg Hardy remains sidelined from injuries sustained in a July motorcycle accident. Team does not plan to rush him back.

•DE Eric Norwood has shown as much promise as any DE thus far. Entirely too early to tell, but he fits the Trent Cole style of pass rusher that defensive coordinator Sean McDermott utilized in Philadelphia

•WR Brandon LaFell still out with hamstring issues. Team says he could return by mid-week.

I really hope Beason is ready to get back into practice, cause these injuries are hitting us hard. Also Kalil needs to be back in as well.

Both Gettis and Lafell out with hammy injuries :rolleyes:

After a good season and don't capitalize by working extra hard to get even further. Its time for some good ol hardcore Smith advice

VERY questionable. Hey if they want Edwards and Clowney to take their spots on the depth chart it's fine with me. :skep:

Clowney? Why? Has he ever proved anything about him being good? D:

One of those 2 won't be on the final roster.

At least Clowney is fighting for a starting job.

Starting job?

You are legitimately smoking crack if you think Clowney is close to a starting spot with the panthers.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
