Panthers rookie wide receiver Devin Funchess has been limited during the preseason due to a hamstring injury, but coach Ron Rivera is eager for him to see game action since the team needs to find ways to replace Kelvin Benjamin's production.
The Panthers announced second-year wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin will miss the 2015 season after an MRI revealed he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee. Benjamin suffered the non-contact injury during one-on-one drills Wednesday.
Falcons wide receiver Roddy White underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Monday. While his status for the start of the season remains up in the air, Falcons owner Arthur Blank is confident the veteran wide receiver will be ready to play Week 1.
