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)."
Saints pass rusher Victor Butler tore his ACL at practice on Tuesday and is expected to miss the 2013 season according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Butler was expected to start opposite Will Smith.
