Injuries at safety have Carolina Panthers CB Charles Godfrey on move

With injuries at safety, the Carolina Panthers worked cornerback Charles Godfrey there with the second-team defense and will have him split time at cornerback, nickel and safety Thursday against Pittsburgh.

“We’ve put a lot on his plate but he seems to be handling it very nicely,” Rivera said.

Rookie Tre Boston has been limited with a groin injury, and veteran Roman Harper returned to practice this week after a three-week absence because of turf toe. Second-year safety Robert Lester has been sidelined with an ankle injury.

Godfrey was a starting safety for the team until the second game of last season, when he tore his Achilles. The Panthers cut Godfrey’s base salary by $4.25 million this offseason and moved him back to corner, where he played in college and in his first NFL season.
