Rookie lineman practices for first time

Panthers rookie offensive tackle Jeff Otah practiced for the first time Monday during the team's "summer school" session.

Otah, a first-round pick in April's NFL draft, had been held out of the team's minicamp in May and last week's three days of off-season training activities (OTAs) because of a high-ankle sprain.

Otah, a 6-foot-6, 330-pounder, hurt the ankle last August and played with the injury the entire season at the University of Pittsburgh. David Scott

Good to hear. Hopefully this will put to rest alot of the doubters that have questioned his injury and selection in the draft.

So....how did he look out there?

He looked great until he slipped and broke his ankle. Now he's on IR.

Sorry. Was just kidding, hope he turns out great. And hopefully Gross is better this time on the left than he was last time.

Finally we may obtain a little continuity on our "new" offensive line, running backs, and our protection packages. Things are definitely looking up. Hey Fox throw in the road grater package;)

David looks like a cross between Stan and Charles. The sports guys have been busy in the clone lab
