The Panthers were running in shorts and shells Monday night, so this will be the shorts and shells version of the blog.
Two main things stood out during the light night practice.

1) The notion that WR Dwayne Jarrett can't play is misguided. That's not to say he always does play, but the question isn't whether he can or not.
Jarrett had at least three highlight-reel catches, one on a Matt Moore deep ball, that had the whole crowd oohing and ahhing. The sprawled-out one-hander on the sideline was nice too.
I understand the frustration, because he's so rarely done it in games. But when you see practices like tonight, you understand why they give him so many chances.
2) Starting to get healthy again.
They got LB Jordan Senn (The Senn Master) and T Garry Williams back on the field.
Even with DT Louis Leonard taking the night off on his one-a-day plan, it left the Panthers with 70 players. They haven't had that many up since the first weekend of camp, when the litany of minor injuries began.
We'll see how it holds up, but they'll need the bodies once the games begin.
That's it for tonight, we'll be back tomorrow.
