Panthers Jaydon Mickens looking to bring electricity to the field
The Carolina Panthers officially opened 2019 training camp last week with their first practices of the season at Wofford College, and so far there has been good news -- Cam Newton’s shoulder appears healthy, and new center Matt Paradis is confident he can give his quarterback the football. The Charlotte Observer has you covered throughout training camp with our four-person crew out in Spartanburg that will be providing live coverage of every practice this month.

11:15 a.m.: Small skirmish just broke out between 2nd team lines during team drills... Nothing major, just some pushing and yelling. — Brendan Marks
10:51 a.m.: Panthers rookie tackle Greg Little being walked off practice field. No apparent limp. Maybe some heat distress? — Rick Bonnell
10:42 a.m.: Definitely a defensive day so far. Secondary getting their hands on the ball, breaking up passes, and disruptive front-seven. — Brendan Marks
10:38 a.m.: Cam Newton hit the ground on a passing drill that included pass rush. No, he wasn’t hit, but when the QB1 hits the turf, all necks crane. — Rick Bonnell
10:20 a.m.: Trailing only Cam, Donte Jackson has to have the second-most fun interactions with fans at training camp. he ran by a group of them a minute ago after breaking up a long ball and signaled for more applause. — Scott Fowler
9:57 a.m.: Cam just connected with Jarius Wright on an absolutely gorgeous out route. Floated it right over the defenders hands — shoulder shimmy after is a totally appropriate flex ... Newton is also giving Terry Godwin, one of his former 7-on-7 guys, a little route-running advice. — Brendan Marks
9:43 a.m.: Cam obviously happy to be throwing again after he hardly ever did Saturday. When he and McCaffrey slightly flub an intricate handshake that involved a hip shimmy, Cam bellowed: “That’s what training camp is for!” — Scott Fowler
9:35 a.m.: Cam Newton fired up this morning; doing a toe-drag dance with Christian McCaffrey. —Rick Bonnell
9:06 a.m.: Carolina Panthers training camp rolls on Sunday, and while yesterday was a planned rest day for quarterback Cam Newton, today he figures to participate fully in his first padded practice of the summer. — Brendan Marks
