A quick look at Panthers RB Brandon Wegher:

Height: 5-10.

Weight: 205.

College: Morningside.

NFL experience: Second year.

The scoop: The Panthers liked Wegher enough last season to not only keep him around but put him on the 53-man roster for fear of another team signing him off the practice squad. He’s a durable back with good power, and he shined last preseason. Wegher only got a jersey for one game last season and didn’t record any stats. He’s well behind Jonathan Stewart and Cameron Artis-Payne on the depth chart. He’ll be competing this camp mostly against Fozzy Whittaker and Jalen Simmons.
