Panthers, Dolphins to hold joint practices at Wofford Aug. 19-20

The Panthers and Dolphins will hold joint practices open to the public at Wofford this summer in the days leading up to their exhibition in Charlotte on Aug. 22.

Carolina and Miami will practice with each other at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 19 and 20 at Wofford’s Gibbs Stadium. It marks the first time the Panthers have held a joint practice at Wofford with another NFL team since doing so with the Lions in 2000.

The practices come on the final two days of camp in Spartanburg. Carolina begins training camp on July 31 and ends on Aug. 20.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Coach (Joe) Philbin, and we’re excited to be working with the Dolphins,” Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said in a statement. “The Dolphins do some things differently on offense, defense and special teams so it will be an opportunity to work on all three phases of the game in controlled situations with really good tempo. Our players will see some different looks, and it will be a couple days of quality practice for us.”

The Panthers will have a Lowe’s Kickoff Party on July 31 starting at 4:30 p.m. with practice beginning at 6:30. The annual Fan Fest will be held at Bank of America Stadium starting at 5 p.m. on Aug. 7.
