Richardson makes appearance at Panthers camp

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

There's very good news out of Carolina's camp this morning.

Owner Jerry Richardson visited practice and was riding around on a golf cart with retired defensive end Mike Rucker. Richardson had a heart transplant in February.

When I was at Carolina's camp last week, team officials said Richardson has been making steady progress, but hasn't returned to full duties yet. Take his appearance at camp as another sign that the progress continues.
