Will Panthers DB Eric Reid protest during national anthem?

Will Panthers DB Eric Reid protest during national anthem?

An early season bye week is in the rearview mirror for Carolina Panthers players, coaches and fans, who took full advantage by healing, adding new personnel and enjoying a stress free week of football.

Odell Beckham Jr. wants the pressure on him. The kneeling became a controversial topic in the National Football League and captured nationwide attention when President Trump called for an end to the action. "But that's not the way it works".

"Eric knows what's best for Eric and what Eric needs to do".

Cam Newton said the Panthers "got a steal" when they signed the 26-year-old Reid.

None of Reid's new Carolina teammates joined him or stood near him at midfield.

FAMILIAR FACES: When Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly turned on the film this week, he saw plenty of familiar plays being run by the Giants.

Reid signed with the Panthers last Thursday and will likely start against the New York Giants on Sunday.

- The Bills botched a field goal late in the first half - either it was a blown fake or an issue getting the ball down for the kick.

Newton is probably the most multitalented quarterback in the NFL. He's not - we know Eli's not running it.

"He is everything that is advertised, and we need him to be him", said Newton.

Moving the ball and scoring points has been a struggle this season for the Giants under Shula. He tried to make a last-second block on the Carolina gunner at the Giants' two-yard line on a second-quarter punt. But surprisingly he has yet to have 20 carries in a game this year.

Saquon Barkley: What more can even be said about Barkley at this point? The Panthers are allowing 110 yards per game on the ground. However, Stewart suffered a foot injury that landed him on injured reserve this past week.
