Carolina Panthers tackle Byron Bell (77), shown before the Sunday, Aug. 3 practice at Wofford College in Spartanburg, left practice early on Monday for undisclosed reasons.

SPARTANBURG Carolina Panthers right tackle Nate Chandler was back at practice on Monday at Wofford College after missing Sunday’s practice with a knee injury, but the status of left tackle Byron Bell was a mystery.

Veteran Garry Williams replaced Bell during team drills at the end of practice. Rivera said he didn’t know exactly why the switch was made, although he said Bell had a minor knee issue flare up earlier at practice.

Three members of the defensive end rotation were out – Charles Johnson (hamstring), rookie Kony Ealy (left foot) and Mario Addison (stomach bug). Reserve offensive lineman Derek Dennis also sat out with flu-like symptoms.

Tight end Mike McNeill is sidelined with a sprained knee he sustained in the first exhibition. Strong safety Roman Harper remains out with turf toe.
