Panthers coach Ron Rivera has made it sound like adding wideout David Gettis to the active roster was a fait accompli.
But based on what offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and others in the organization are saying, that might not be the case.
Gettis, who missed the entire 2011 season following ACL surgery, began this season on the physically unable to perform list with a hamstring injury.
He began practicing two weeks ago. The Panthers have until Wednesday to add Gettis to the active roster or he must remain on the PUP list the rest of the season.
"We just need to get him in and be working him in," Chudzinski said. "I think he was rusty. He’s still kind of working through. I’ve seen him improve in the last couple of weeks. I don’t know if he’s ready there yet, but I see him moving in that direction."If Gettis goes on the 53-man roster, Armanti Edwards could be on the chopping block.
