---Rivera is growing more concerned about whether middle linebacker Jon Beason will be ready for the opening game at Arizona. Beason, who has never missed a regular season game, has yet to practice due to tendinitis in his left Achilles. Rivera said the Panthers have three other linebackers who can play the position if Beason is not ready - Dan Conner, Omar Gaither, and Thomas Williams.

"But we'll make that decision once we get to that week," Rivera said.

on a surprise note, it looks like stewart is practicing even tho rivera said he would be held out.

I think we need to be prepared to see him listed as Questionable for the first few games of the regular season. At some point he will have to decide if/when he should play through the pain.

if stewart can do it, i would be surprised if beason didn't.

both are beasts.

it wouldn't be the first time beason played with an injury.

I'm pissed. Connor can not cover the field like Beason.

CRAP

Connors to slow and loses RB's in the hole

Gaithers is just terrible in the middle and a average WLB

Williams shows flashes but is young

B.wells will destroy us without Beason

I wouldn't call Connor a scrub but like Greensboro said he can't cover the field the same way Beason can. I feel like this has to be pretty painful because Beason doesnt strike me as the type of player who sits out for nothing.

shaping up to be a rough early season, but that was to be expected (albeit for different reasons). injuries bite us every year, at least with beason it hit a position we at least have a decent backup in, and at least it isn't so serious he's out for extended time in the regular season yet.

Beason has a motor of an Lion, the guy just doesn't stop. I'm gonna be very saddened if he isn't magically fixed by the first game.

:iagree: but Connor doesn't look like the same player from last year, slower and losing containment in his lane , which scares me
