CHARLOTTE, N.C. — After another day of testing in the NFL, the Panthers have not had to place any players on the league’s COVID-19/reserve list.

Veteran players who test negative multiple times this week can begin coming inside the team’s facility in Uptown, getting equipment, and taking part in strength and conditioning and walkthroughs.

Panthers rookies arrived a week ahead of veterans.
