There are several position battles being fought in the Carolina Panthers preseason. And there are other positions that have question marks due to health. Linebackers Thomas Davis and Jon Beason, coming off season-ending injuries in 2011, are still hurting.
Davis, who has had three surgeries on his right knee, strained his right calf during the second practice. He has resumed individual drills and coach Ron Rivera hopes he can increase his workload next week.
Beason pulled a hamstring due to overcompensating for his surgically-repaired Achilles.
Neither is expected to play Friday against Miami, but Beason hopes to return for the August 26 preseason game against the Jets. Coach Rivera is a bit concerned about both Beason and Davis, but watching rookie linebacker Luke Kuechly gives him a bit of breathing room.

This wrapping of Panthers rookie Brenton Bersin’s Jeep happened late last week but this hazing deserves the Internet’s attention because you guys totally LOL over these pranks.

When it comes to Steve Smith, how do you spell fun? C-A-M, that’s how. Only two years removed from being so disenchanted with the Carolina panthers, Smith is back to his old playful self, or at least his old fiery content self.

Josh Norman intercepts four passes in practice
Despite coming from a small-time college football program at Division 1-AA Coastal Carolina, Josh Norman never doubted that he would ultimately play in the NFL.
The rookie cornerback certainly doesn’t mind tooting his own horn, and has quickly gained a reputation of being cocky.

Ron Rivera got what he wanted Friday night.
The second-year Carolina Panthers' coach wanted to see his team play with spirit, intensity and focus in its second preseason game of the season, unlike how it approached the opener last Saturday night.

Ask and you shall receive.
When the Panthers brought in free agent Mike Tolbert and signed DeAngelo Williams to a long-term extension, many people thought that there would be no room left in the backfield for Jonathan Stewart.
Despite the speculation, the fifth-year pro was very vocal about his desire to remain in Carolina.
As it turns out, the backfield wasn’t as crowded...
Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart left tonight’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins with an apparent left calf injury. As of now, it’s not believed to be serious.
