Panthers add quarterback Connor Cook to practice squad; Kendrick Norton and Jeremiah Sirles released The Panthers have made some moves along the fringe of the roster http://www.carolinapanthersteamonlin...addison-jersey , according to Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer.The injury settlement with Sirles comes as a bit of a surprise, as the move suggests that the versatile lineman wasn?t in the Panthers? plans despite starting the team?s penultimate preseason contest. Depending on the severity of Sirles? injury and the terms of the settlement, the Panthers could technically re-sign him later this season, but that kind of move rarely happens. The addition of quarterback Connor Cook to the practice squad gives the Panthers four quarterbacks across the active roster and practice squad. To make room for Michigan State?s all time leading passer, the Panthers waived 2018 seventh round pick Kendrick Norton. It?s usually not a good look for a team to cut a draft pick in their first season Authentic Taylor Moton Jersey , but at the 242nd selection Norton was nothing more than a glorified undrafted free agent. As for Cook, he was selected in the 4th round of the 2016 draft by the Oakland Raiders, where he spent the first two seasons of his career. His first NFL action came in the final game of the 2016 season, where he filled in for an injured Matt McGloin. Against a tough Broncos defense, the rookie completed 14 of 21 passes for 150 yards http://www.carolinapanthersteamonlin...-horton-jersey , 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. The following week he made his first career start, the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to do so in a playoff game, against the Houston Texans, and it did not go well. He completed just 18 of 45 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown to go along with three interceptions as the Raiders lost the contest 27-14. He didn?t see the field in 2017 and was released by the Raiders last week after they traded for AJ McCarron. Despite the early ups and downs Authentic Trai Turner Jersey , Cook comes with more NFL pedigree than any quarterback on the Panthers roster not named Cam Newton. He might prove to not have it what it takes to succeed in the NFL, but it?s good to see the Panthers take a flier on a young quarterback with a decent amount of potential. The Panthers have issued today?s injury report for their Week 3 game against the Bengals and it?s pretty much a carbon copy of yesterday?s report.Trai Turner and Da?Norris Searcy are still in the concussion protocol. Curtis Samuel is still not practicing after his ?minor? heart procedure but is working out, per Ron Rivera. Meanwhile, Damiere Byrd has graduated from the DNP list and is now practicing on a limited basis. The Panthers could use his help as a returner just as much as they could as a receiver.
