Things have been unseasonably cool for the Panthers in Spartanburg, S.C. this summer.
But that break hasn’t meant they’re more productive.
Via Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, the Panthers lined up Sunday morning without 14 players, including two of their biggest stars.
Defensive ends Greg Hardy (shoulder) and Charles Johnson (hamstring) are among the guys working on the sidelines, a crowd so big they didn’t have enough exercise bikes to accommodate them all.
With 90 on the roster, it’s easier to stomach a few days off. But with 21 percent of their salary cap on the side in the person of their starting defensive ends, it’s also hard to get a sense for what they’re going to look like.
