11:15 a.m.: The award for most drops in this camp undoubtedly goes to WR Aldrick Robinson so far. — Scott Fowler
10:51 a.m.: Panthers tackle Dillon Gordon off the field after a pileup. He was able to walk off under his own power. — Rick Bonnell
10:48 a.m.: As Chris Hogan catches a short pass from Cam for a likely TD, safety Ross Cockrell runs over to try to make the play. “You ain’t making that tackle, four-seven,” Hogan said, jogging into end zone. — Scott Fowler
10:30 a.m.: DE/OLB spots are down in manpower today. Vet days for Addison and Irvin; Efe Obada has a personal day yesterday and also isn’t at Panthers practice today; first-round pick Brian Burns left team drills for awhile and has his lower left leg wrapped. Still at practice but on the side. — Scott Folwer
10:24 a.m.: Kuechly getting in some extra work on far field while a special-teams drill is going on, because it’s Kuechly. I’m surprised he doesn’t also have a film projector set up under a tent so he can watch old game film during his water breaks. — Scott Fowler
10:10 a.m.: No Jordan Scarlett today.Ron Rivera said Sunday he was slightly injured Friday. More preseason caution to keep @Panthers healthy this preseason. — Rick Bonnell
9:45 a.m.: Not exactly huge attendance for a Monday morning practice, when most people are at work. There are 90 players on the fields and maybe 150-200 fans scattered about the fields. — Scott Fowler
9:34 a.m.: Cam in full pads and throwing again. On what is about to be a pretty heavy practice day, his team drill reps against the first-team defense should be fun. — Scott Fowler
9:27 a.m.: The Panthers list Kyle Allen as second on their quarterback depth chart, ahead of rookie Will Grier, going into first preseason game Thursday. I’ll have a story on where Allen stands in his effort to make the team later this morning. — Rick Bonnell
