    Panthers' Stephen Hill: Suspended one game

    Hill has been suspended one game for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Hill suffered a torn ACL in the opening days of training camp, effectively ending his season before it could kick off. The current suspension likely stems from a citation for marijuana paraphernalia possession in late July, but in any case, he'll have to serve the one-game ban once he's healthy enough to take the field.

    Standout snags Thursday give hope to Panthers WR Stephen Hill

    Panthers wide receiver Stephen Hill flashed some of the potential Thursday that he never reached with the Jets. He caught three deep balls, beating starting cornerback Josh Norman on one of them. But such achievements are quickly forgotten in May. If Hill doesn't produce when training camp and the preseason games roll around, he will be in the same predicament he has been in since August. That's when he was waived by the Jets and landed on the Carolina practice squad. And that is not where a player with his talent belongs. But Hill, a second-round selection in 2012, only caught 45 passes for the Jets in his first two seasons combined, so he must prove his worthiness all over again. Quarterback Cam Newton ran downfield to congratulate Hill on his catch against Norman, which pleased the wideout. He was encouraged by his performance. "Today was pretty good," he told the Charlotte Observer. "I made a couple big plays, but still need to work on some things when it came to individuals."

    Panthers' Rivera expecting Stephen Hill to contribute in 2015

    Panthers coach Ron Rivera believes wide receiver Stephen Hill is ready to make an impact in 2015 after spending the 2014 season on the practice squad, per ESPN. "Very much so," Rivera said Wednesday during the NFL owners meeting in Phoenix. "He's a guy we feel has an opportunity. We're very excited about [seeing] Stephen during OTAs and minicamp. "With his size (6-4, 215) and speed and his ability to get vertical, if he can assimilate to what we do -- and I think he will; he seems to be a very smart man -- he might be a guy that has an opportunity to contribute for us." Rivera felt Hill's year on the practice squad was beneficial after the 2012 second-round pick failed to live up to expectations during his tenure with the Jets. "I thought it was a good opportunity to take a step back and take a break," Rivera said. "The thing I liked about Stephen was how he contributed to our football team's success. He came in. He had been a second-round pick. He had no assumptions, no entitlement. "He ran all the scout teams for us. He ran them hard. Gave us great looks, which is what makes us excited 'cause you watch a guy perform who could very easily dog it, and he didn't. And you saw him grow. You saw him make catches. You saw him get comfortable in his own skin again."

    With Philly Brown sidelined, Stephen Hill might get a shot

    With undrafted rookie wideout Philly Brown (shoulder) unable to practice for the second straight day Wednesday, the Panthers might promote wideout Stephen Hill from their practice squad for Saturday's divisional playoff game at Seattle, reports Carolina also is looking at third-string quarterback Joe Webb, who has moved back to receiver, the report said. Brenton Bersin continued to work as the No. 3 receiver in Wednesday's practice. However, he lacks the elite speed Brown brings, the report said. Hill made 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns in two seasons with the Jets. Carolina is an 11-point underdog.
