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 Jones of the Charlotte Observer. Bruce Campbell injured rotator cuff. Will require surgery. May be season ending but Rivera is unsure — Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) August 12, 2013 Jones added that head coach Ron Rivera is unsure at this time if the procedure will end Campbell’s season. More will be known once the surgery is completed and later in the rehab process, but it seems like Campbell will at least be sidelined for an extended stretch. While Campbell wasn’t a starter for the Panthers, he was their only backup left tackle in camp with any experience, according to Pro Football Talk. His absence depletes the team’s depth, meaning they are even more vulnerable when future injuries arise. Carolina has had issues across their line so far this exhibition season. Edmund Kugbila, who the Panthers were hoping would compete for the starting right guard position, has been injured, and it’s not clear when he’ll return.
