Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, who was placed on the heart transplant list last week, is here at the game. He's sitting in his box with his wife and family.
He missed last Monday's game, still in the hospital undergoing tests. He's missed three straight road games as well, skipping trips to Oakland, Green Bay and Atlanta.

He's only missed two home games in franchise history, one in 2002 before he had quadruple bypass surgery, and last Monday's.
It's good to see him back in his box.
A team spokesman said he's been released from the hospital to await his transplant at home, which is common for those on the list.
