Panthers' Leonard Johnson: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson began training camp on the active/non-football injury list with an Achilles injury.

Johnson suffered the injury last season when he was with the Patriots, but did not undergo surgery until this offseason. The cornerback can be removed from the list at any point and rejoin the team on the field. There will be plenty of reps for young Panthers' defensive backs to begin camp with Johnson and fellow corner Bene Benwikere (ankle) both on the sidelines.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Cleared for practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kuechly (shoulder) has been cleared for practice, but head coach Ron Rivera indicated the star middle linebacker will be eased back into action, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kuechly underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair a partially torn labrum suffered Week 17 versus the Bucs. His recovery has reportedly been setback-free, and, now cleared for training camp, he should be set to patrol the middle of the Panthers' vaunted defense come Carolina's Week 1 Super Bowl rematch with Denver.

Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin: Cleared for camp, will ramp up activity slowly
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Panthers cleared Benjamin (knee) for training camp, but he'll be eased into action, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

On Thursday, Benjamin's initial routes at Wofford College will mark his first "full" practice since tearing the ACL in his left knee during an intrasquad practice with the Dolphins last August, according to David Newton of ESPN.com. In his absence, Cam Newton was forced to use all the receiving options at his disposal, and the result was the most productive season of the quarterback's career. Although Benjamin's return will be welcomed by Newton and the rest of the offense, the lessons learned by Newton could result in less attention paid to Benjamin. Nevertheless, in their sole campaign together in 2014, Benjamin rattled off 73 receptions (on 145 targets) for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie.

Panthers' Bene Benwikere: Starting camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Benwikere (lower leg) will be on the Panthers' physically unable to perform list to begin training camp, Jonathan Jones of The Observer reports.

Benwikere was originally expected to be ready for the start of camp, but it seems that his lower leg fracture is continuing to bother him a bit. Despite the fact that he's beginning camp on the PUP list, the team doesn't seem concerned about his status for the regular season, and he's eligible to return to practice at any time.

Panthers' Kurt Coleman: Inks three-year extension with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coleman agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Panthers on Tuesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

In his first season with Carolina, Coleman served as a defensive catalyst and helped lead the Panthers to the Super Bowl. The 28-year-old safety led the team with a career-high seven interceptions and also made 90 tackles. With cornerback Josh Norman no longer a piece of the Panthers' secondary, Carolina seems to have fully invested in Coleman.
