With another pushed-back start time of 10:00 am, the Carolina Panthers felt the return of warmer temperatures in the low 80s. They continue to build upon the recent momentum lately as they perfect their own craft in the team schemes. This practice saw the return of WR Robby Anderson, who missed the last two practices with personal family matters back in Florida.
LT Cam Erving, LB Clay Johnston, and DT Caraun Reid joined CB A.J. Bouye and LB Denzel Perryman in the red jerseys for players who are not practicing. C Matt Paradis and OL Dennis Daley are not here due to approved absence for personal reasons.
