Projecting the Panthers 53-Man Roster After Two Preseason Games

Previewing who we believe will be on the Panthers' roster come week one.

We've now seen the Panthers play in two preseason games which gives us a pretty good idea of who and who won't be on the team's roster by the start of the regular season. Our projections below do include some players who are currently injured such as Denzel Perryman, Kenny Robinson, and a few others. We've included them to show that they will be on the active roster once healthy. Names that are in bold are considered to be locks to make the roster.
