Panthers have OG Chris Scott back, but Nate Chandler remains starter

Carolina Panthers right guard Chris Scott was active against the New York Jets last week after missing five games with a sprained knee. Scott, who started the first eight games, is expected to see his workload will gradually increase.

But Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Nate Chandler, the defensive tackle-turned-offensive-lineman, remains the starter.

“It was good to see (Scott) out there. He’s a bigger body than Nate. He’s more of a natural guard than Nate,” Rivera said. “But at the same time, Nate’s played very physical, very well for us. He’s done a great job. So what we’ll probably look to do is see if we can integrate (Scott) a little bit into the system, get him going again.”
