Training camp can be a wonderful time if you’re an NFL fan. There’s always hope that this year will be the year and you start to see younger players emerge. Of course, it can also be awful if your favorite players are all getting hurt. Needless to say, Carolina Panthers fans probably have mixed emotions right now with second year guard Edmund Kugbila getting spinal surgery and...

One of the great things about the NFL is that nearly every team can make a case for the upcoming season being “their year.” That’s because every campaign sees plenty of worst-to-first turnarounds, where non-playoff teams from the year before suddenly find themselves in postseason contention down the stretch.
Some of this is nothing more than false hope, summertime bravado that...
We continue our series looking at how Carolina Panthers’ rookies from 2013 performed and what we should expect looking forward. We’ve already examined the bright prospects of Star Lotulelei as well as Kawann Short, who seems ready to emerge in 2014. This week, we take a look at fourth round pick Edmund Kugbila, who spent his rookie season on IR but could make an impact on a...
Grading last year’s draft is almost as foolish as grading this upcoming draft the day after, but nowadays people want instant analysis so that’s what we at cover32 are going to give them. The best we can do is grade based on what we know from one year of this class being in the league. As the 2008 draft showed us, year one performance doesn’t mean the player will or won’t...
This has been a difficult offseason for the Carolina Panthers. The franchise’s greatest player of all-time and greatest offensive lineman ever both have moved on. Things may be getting worse. Travelle Wharton, who graded out as the fifth best guard in the NFL last season per Pro Football Focus, is reportedly leaning towards retirement.

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart will miss at least the first six weeks of the season while he recovers from an ankle injury.
Coach Ron Rivera said after practice Tuesday that Stewart was placed on the physically unable to perform list.
The team also put guard Edmund Kugbila, its fourth-round draft pick, on injured reserve with a knee injury and waived injured defensive...
Panthers rookie guard Edmund Kugbila was carted to the locker room after injuring his right hamstring early in Saturday's training camp practice.
Coach Ron Rivera says the extent of the injury is unclear.
Kugbila, the team's fourth-round pick out of Valdosta State, missed most of the team's OTAs in June with a knee issue and Rivera says it's unclear if the injuries...

First Round: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
ANALYSIS: I still don't get why the Jets passed on him, but Carolina must be thrilled. I knew it had to be Star when the pick was in within a few minutes. He's the best DT in the draft, yet he somehow fell all the way to Carolina at 14. The defensive tackle position has been a huge need in Carolina for years, and they've...
