Lightning in the area has forced players from the field at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, and the start of Thursday night’s Panthers-Steelers preseason finale has been delayed.

As of now, kickoff has been pushed back 20 minutes to 7:51 p.m.

The Steelers also dealt with a weather delay before their preseason opener vs. the Lions. Both teams are anxious to get this game going and over; the Panthers open the 2016 season a week from tonight in Denver.
