The Panthers won't hit the practice field until 3 p.m., and it's going to be a hot one. They're going full pads, so it should be interesting to see how they plow through the effects of yesterday's double.
Here's a few highlights of the interview period, from which we'll have more in tomorrow's paper.

-- RB Jonathan Stewart said he hopes to start practicing soon, and hopes to during camp. That's been an issue as long as he's been here, as he said he hasn't felt 100 percent since the end of his final season at Oregon.
"There's a lot of jokes being made here or there about that whole situation," Stewart said. "But me being an athlete and me being a competitor, practice is something that's very important to excel. You've got guys that are practicing around you and getting better and you're not being able to get the opportunity. It kind of sucks.
"Once I get healthy, it's going to be one of the best days of my life, to be able to get back to normal."
-- RB DeAngelo Williams was signing the praises of QB Matt Moore, laughing as he lauded Moore's ability to hand off.
He denied that he feels pressure to carry the load this year, saying that Matt's perfectly capable of leading this team through the air.
He also laughed when asked about Jimmy Clausen, saying he's amazed at the attention the rookie QB has received, beyond anything about the team as a whole, the rebuilt defense, etc.
-- C Ryan Kalil said that whoever's going to end up at RG will be different than Keydrick Vincent, but he's confident if Mackenzy Bernadeau ends up with that job.
Bernadeau is a quicker player, and will change some of Kalil's techniques, but could be an overall upgrade over Vincent, who struggled in pass protection last year.
We'll have more this afternoon, during practice (on twitter @daringantt) and a wrap-up following the work.
