A look at the coverage from this morning's local newspapers:
Deuce McAllister admits he's not the same player he was earlier in his career, but said he thinks he still can play a significant role.
Safety Lawyer Milloy issued an apology to the team and fans after being charged with driving under the influence. Coach Mike Smith said the matter will be handled internally.
Rookie left tackle Sam Baker, who left Sunday's game early with a head injury, will be brought along slowly. The team hasn't said if Baker suffered a concussion, but that appears to be a possibility. Veteran Todd Weiner, who is coming off major knee surgery, finished the game in Baker's spot and could get a start this weekend.
Although Carolina fans are celebrating the team's 2-0 start, general manager Marty Hurney is not. That's not the least bit surprising. Hurney is a worrier by nature. Watching his intensity during a game is almost painful. I've seen him almost wear out a pair of shoes while pacing and he's more than a little superstitious.
One of the more humorous Hurney stories came at a playoff game in the Meadowlands a few years ago. The Panthers were putting the finishing touches on a shutout of the Giants. A reporter friend I'll call "Stan'' picked up his phone and started making a hotel reservation for Chicago the following weekend.
When Hurney heard that, he turned as red as a fire truck and started yelling, "Hang up that phone now. Don't jinx us." To his credit, "Stan'' stayed on the phone and booked the reservation.
Defensive end Greg White got a new contract. Quarterback Jeff Garcia did not.
