  • Cameron Artis-Payne: Cut by Carolina

    The Panthers cut Artis-Payne on Friday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    The 2015 fifth-round pick spent the past four years in Carolina, taking 118 carries for 491 yards and five touchdowns in 32 games. The Panthers' decision to cut Artis-Payne suggests rookie fifth-round pick Jordan Scarlett will enter Week 1 with the No. 2 spot on the depth chart at running back. It's also a good sign for Reggie Bonnafon and Elijah Holyfield.

  • Panthers' Cameron Artis-Payne: Gets three touches

    Artis-Payne rushed twice for six yards and caught his lone target for four yards in Thursday night's 25-19 preseason win over the Steelers.

    Artis-Payne started at tailback after not playing any offensive snaps in Carolina's third exhibition outing. Although the veteran didn't feature for long Thursday, him opening the game helps his outlook compared to last week. Still, with rookie fifth-rounder Jordan Scarlett totaling 47 yards and a touchdown and Reggie Bonnafon flashing again behind him, Artis-Payne's standing on the team should be worthwhile to monitor as roster cuts and depth charts are released ahead of Week 1. His experience in the Panthers offense would offer reassurance as Christian McCaffrey's backup early on, but Scarlett and Bonnafon have also made decent claims for spare snaps.

  • Panthers' Cameron Artis-Payne: Doesn't feature on offense

    Artis-Payne didn't play any offensive snaps in Thursday night's 10-3 preseason loss to the Patriots.

    Artis-Payne merely featured on two special teams plays. Meanwhile, rookie fifth-rounder Jordan Scarlett entered the game behind star tailback Christian McCaffrey and led the team with 10 carries. Although Elijah Holyfield's mere one snap on offense should give Artis-Payne some peace of mind with respect to a roster spot, Reggie Bonnafon has shown enough in the preseason to cast doubt over both players' futures with the Panthers. With that in mind, it'll be interesting to see how the running back snaps are divided in next week's exhibition finale versus the Steelers.

  • Panthers' Cameron Artis-Payne: Productive in passing game

    Artis-Payne rushed five times for eight yards and caught both his targets for 30 yards in Thursday night's 23-13 preseason win over the Bears.

    Artis-Payne started at tailback for the Panthers and registered a 17-yard reception on the team's second offensive play. He then hauled in a 13-yarder on the second play of Carolina's second drive, but otherwise was held in check. The veteran was replaced by Elijah Holyfield in the second quarter, and although the rookie would score two touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) while featuring until the end of the game, he also lost a fumble. That performance left a mixed impression as Holyfield aims to move up the depth chart, and the incumbent second-stringer Artis-Payne should get more time to show his stuff in next week's meeting with the Bills.

  • Panthers' Cameron Artis-Payne: Facing backup competition

    Artis-Payne faces competition for backup work from Jordan Scarlett, Elijah Hood (knee), Elijah Holyfield and Reggie Bonnafon, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The Panthers have talked about reducing Christian McCaffrey's workload, but a lack of investment in their backfield points toward another season full of lofty snap counts. Artis-Payne is the only other Carolina tailback with an NFL carry to his name, while Scarlett has the advantage of being a recent draft pick (2019 fifth-round pick). There's no runaway favorite to earn the No. 2 job, and it's still possible the Panthers bring in a veteran to improve the competition.

  • Panthers' Cameron Artis-Payne: Staying with Carolina

    Artis-Payne has re-signed with the Panthers on a one-year contract, Bryan Strickland of the team's official site reports.

    As the depth chart stands, Artis-Payne returns to a Panthers roster that still has little depth behind starter Christian McCaffrey. While it's possible Carolina adds a running back in next month's draft, Artis-Payne should operate as the clear No. 2 over Elijah Hood (knee) and Reggie Bonnafon when the Panthers' offseason workouts begin April 15.
