The Panthers signed seven players they released Saturday to their practice squad Sunday.

Carolina signed running back Tauren Poole, who was battling with Armond Smith for the remaining running back job. The Panthers also signed wide receivers James Shaw and Brenton Bersin.

On defense, undrafted rookie Robert Lester was signed to the squad. A safety from Alabama, he had a strong spring but struggled early in camp. He rebounded to play well in the final exhibitions.

The Panthers also signed defensive end Craig Roh, defensive tackle Casey Walker and linebacker Ben Jacobs.

Carolina can sign one more player to fill its squad at eight. The Panthers could look to fill that spot with a quarterback since they have two quarterbacks on their active roster.

Clausen, Gettis clear waivers

Quarterback Jimmy Clausen, wide receiver David Gettis and safeties D.J. Campbell and Anderson Russell cleared waivers Sunday and reverted to the Panthers’ injured reserve.

The quartet was waived/injured Saturday by Carolina in an effort to trim the roster to 53 players. The players could stay on the IR for the rest of the season or until the team reaches an injury settlement, which is likely for Clausen.

There were no roster additions or subtractions for the Panthers on Sunday night. Jonathan Jones
