Panthers hit the field early for practice

Charlotte, NC - (WBTV)

Training camp begins this weekend in Spartanburg, South Carolina; but today some of the guys got to work early at the Panthers practice field in Charlotte.

Cam Newton as well as the rest of the QB's were at this camp but these practices are mostly for players like Charles Johnson, Ron Edwards, and Jon Beason who are coming off injury and trying to get back in football shape heading into Training Camp.

Today was also a big benefit for the rookie's like 1st round pick Luke Kuechly, to knock off the rust, heading into their first camp in the NFL and Luke enters it as a humble 1st timer.

Kuechly: "You can't come in thinking you have done something because college is over, high school is over, all that stuff is over now, its a new thing. Those guys have been around, you know, I have not done anything, I have not played a snap, so its my turn to come in and learn. But I think that it's that step now and it's real and it is going to be exciting"
