Williams on injured reserve The story of the Panthers’ offensive line continues to be a sad one. According to Ian Rapaport of NFL Network Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey , the Panthers are expected to put offensive tackle Daryl Williams on injured reserve. The designation would sideline the All Pro tackle for at least eight weeks. The caveat withat is he has to be on the final 53 man roster at the end of the preseason to be eligible to return, so this designation likely won’t become official until the first week of September. If his health allows it, Williams will be able to start practicing with the team again after six weeks and eligible to return to the active roster for the Panthers week 9 tilt against the Buccaneers. It’s unfortunate that the Panthers will be without a key piece on their offensive line for such a significant portion of the season, but it opens the door for Taylor Moton to get experience and show what he’s got. The presence of the second year pro marks the beginning of this new thing the Panthers are trying out called offensive line depth http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-christian-mccaffrey-jersey , and it’s coming in handy now. Look for Moton to get extra reps in the preseason to get him up to speed in time for the Panthers regular season opener in just over a month. The Carolina Panthers have added safety Dezmen Southward to their practice squad to replace Josh Hawkins, who was activated to the 53-man roster last week when Da’Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve.Southward has been with the Panthers on and off again since 2016. He was active for one game in 2017 and spent the rest of his time on the practice squad.The Panthers only have three active safeties on the 53-man roster (Mike Adams, Colin Jones, Rashaan Gaulden) Womens Jarius Wright Jersey , so there’s a chance that Southward will be activated after the bye week just to give the Panthers more depth at the position. While I know that bringing in Southward is a good idea to add bodies to the room, there’s another way the Panthers could add not only depth, but quality at the safety position—sign Eric Reid. He’s available, he’s talented http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/daryl-williams-jersey , he’s young and he fills a need. There’s no good reason to let a perfectly good solution to one of the defense’s biggest problems go to waste. Bring him in Marty, even if it’s only a one-year deal, and fix the lack of safety depth before it becomes a real issue.
