David Gettis looked like a promising rookie receiver in 2010 blowing past defensive backs with his sprinter’s speed and scoring three touchdowns for a Carolina Panthers’ squad that only had 16 offensive scores as a team.
Then he was gone.
A torn ACL in his left knee at training camp ended Gettis’ 2011 season and a nagging hamstring injury limited him to two games during 2012. Gettis resurfaced Friday night against the Chicago Bears catching a team-high three passes for 56 yards in a preseason win.
“It’s been two years since I actually got some playing time” Gettis said Sunday. “Everything’s about progressing right now.”
Gettis began last season on the physically unable to perform list and wasn’t much of a factor after being activated in November. He recorded no stats against Denver and Atlanta.
“Last year I was up there just to be there” Gettis said. “This year they’re giving me the opportunity to make plays and show where I’m at as far as my health and my overall knowledge

Steve Smith has come a long way from sparking melees and arguments with his teammates.
Per the Panthers' Twitter account, the veteran receiver hired a Snow Cone truck to serve the team following Sunday's training camp practice.

SPARTANBURG, SC – The Carolina Panthers ended part one of training camp this morning with a quick-paced practice as they prepped for their Thursday night game at the Philadelphia Eagles. Under new head coach Chip Kelly, the Eagles ran 86 offensive plays in their preseason opener against New England, far more than the average NFL team, so the pace needed to be quick.
Only “occasionally” using the read option, the Charlotte Observer reports Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula has tried to keep Cam Newton in the pocket throughout training camp. Since being taken first overall in 2011, the 24-year-old Newton has thrown 40 touchdowns, against 29 interceptions, for 7,920 yards. A 2011 Pro Bowler and AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, Newton’s...

Earlier this offseason, a lot of attention was paid to the
recovering ankles of Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart. While
offseason ankle surgeries caused Stewart to be placed on the Panthers’
physically unable to perform list at the start of training camp, head coach Ron Rivera told Panthers.com that he is “pretty optimistic” that the running back will return...
The Carolina Panthers struggled to field a consistent
offensive line last season. They were hoping for improvement this year, but it
appears that it could be more of the same with how training camp has begun. In
addition to other minor injuries and ineffectiveness, the Panthers announced
yesterday that reserve tackle Bruce Campbell requires rotator cuff surgery,
according to Jonathan...
Panthers coach Ron Rivera says backup offensive tackle Bruce Campbell will need surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder.
Rivera said after Monday's practice that the team hasn't made a decision on if they'll place Campbell on injured reserve.
The 25-year-old Campbell suffered the injury in Carolina's preseason win over the Chicago Bears on Friday...
Following Sunday’s practice for the Carolina Panthers, wide receiver Steve Smith decided to boost team morale a bit and did so by using the oldest trick in the book. Buy everyone around you ice cream. Pretty cool move, especially during the dog days of summer.

The Panthers announced that starting right guard Garry Williams has torn the ACL and MCL in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season.
The news came Monday shortly after coach Ron Rivera addressed the media at his weekly press conference.
The injury occurred in the first half of Carolina's 12-7 loss to Seattle after a Seahawks defensive lineman rolled up on Williams...
Josh Norman is eager to reclaim the starting job he lost last December following a bad game.
So far, so good.
The Panthers second-year cornerback made a statement Friday night by intercepting two passes and returning one 60 yards for a touchdown to spark Carolina to a 24-17 preseason victory over Chicago.
Norman was on the field for the first play against the Bears, but only because...
There’s a lot riding on this season for the Carolina Panthers. Many players and coaches could be playing for what may be their last season with the team if there aren’t significant improvements made. Every Sunday this season (along with a Thursday and Monday night) will be extremely important, not only for this season, but possibly for seasons to come. While the Panthers...
2008 was a nifty season for DeAngelo Williams, the Memphis alum went good for over 1500 yards and 18 scores on the ground and added 2 more in the air. He was fantasy football’s best player in standard leagues even while sharing the load with Jonathan Stewart. The DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart duo was great again in 2009, but that was also the beginning of the lingering...
