It wasn’t a good day to be a Panthers fourth-round pick.
Kugbila was a project anyway, coming from Division II Valdosta State, but he couldn’t stay on the field upon arrival with a collection of injuries. They were hoping he’d come in and compete for a starting job at right guard with the cut-early Geoff Hangartner, and now they’re scrambling a bit.
Adams was drafted to be their punt returner, but got in coach Ron Rivera’s doghouse last year because of his fumbling problem and never came out.
The Panthers also waived-injured defensive tackle Frank Kearse.
