The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that Willis McGahee was cut by the Broncos in part because of health concerns. McGahee tore his MCL and broke his leg last season and had only a limited amount of reps in minicamp last week. The official team website reports McGahee was cut because the team wanted to get younger at running back. Saving salary cap space was also a benefit for the Broncos.
The Broncos' official website reports Knowshon Moreno continued to work in team drills and hasn't looked limited. He's working his way back from a right knee issue believed to have been suffered in the playoffs in January and was healed using stem cells. On one play he caught a pass from Brock Osweiler and turned upfield for a big gain thanks to his acceleration.
Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman told the Charlotte Observer that he's not sure if running back Jonathan Stewart will be ready for the start of training camp. Stewart has already missed all of the OTA and minicamp practices after offseason surgery on his ankles.
Jon Beason participated in full at Panthers practice Wednesday. He missed 12 games last year because of shoulder and knee injuries but looks good now. "(Jon's) moving around like he's 100 percent," coach Ron Rivera said. "You really see the energy coming back, you see that quickness. Jon works so hard at everything. It didn't surprise that he'd be ready to go (in OTAs)."
