The Panthers got to the roster limit this afternoon with a flurry of moves, including cutting several veterans who were brought in for special teams reinforcements.
The Panthers cut veteran linebacker Jason Trusnik and running back Jordan Todman, who were signed in free agency and expected to play roles in the kicking game.
They also released backup center Brian Folkerts with an injury settlement, leaving them a bit thin there considering starter Ryan Kalil‘s missed the last two preseason games with a knee injury.
They waived defensive tackle Chas Alecxih, safety Marcus Ball, wide receiver Brenton Bersin, linebacker Brian Blechen, wide receiver Mike Brown, cornerback Carrington Byndom, wide receiver Damiere Byrd, defensive end Rakim Cox, tackle David Foucault, linebacker Adarius Glanton, cornerback T.J. Heath, tight end Marcus Lucas, guard Jordan McCray, defensive tackle Terry Redden, tight end Scott Simonson, tackle Martin Wallace and cornerback Lou Young.
They also cut guard Ricky Henry and placed defensive end Arthur Miley on injured reserve.
