The Panthers rushed for only 276 yards in their first three preseason games. They had 205 with less than three minutes left in the first half against Pittsburgh. Rookie Cameron Artis-Payne showed why he led the SEC in rushing last season at Auburn, gaining 67 yards on 12 carries. He could be a fifth-round steal and solid insurance for starter Jonathan Stewart, who has had his share of injuries.

ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden had an interesting perspective on Panthers quarterback Cam Newton during Wednesday's MNF conference call. "He is physically different than any man I've seen play quarterback," Gruden said. "He looks like Charles Oakley or a power forward, He is built to last."

The Carolina Panthers made it official that wide receiver Jarrett Boykin and cornerback Melvin White have been released. Boykin was signed as a free agent from Green Bay, but didn't catch a pass from starting quarterback Cam Newton in three preseason games. White started 17 career games, including the opener last season. Neither move was a big surprise.
