Workers began resodding the middle of the field at Bank of America Stadium on Wednesday, two days after the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts played an overtime game in a constant rain.

The Panthers typically resod the grass between the hash marks in late November but moved the work up several weeks after Monday night’s game in bad conditions.

Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert thought the field held up well Monday considering the rain.

“The turf was great the other night. I felt good on it,” Tolbert said. “I know they had it covered up at some point. It was great.”

Workers resodded the same area of the field last December, beginning two hours after the conclusion of the Belk Bowl and several days before the Panthers hosted Arizona in a playoff game.
