Injured nose tackle Shaun Cody watched Monday’s practice but was unable to participate because of a lower back strain suffered in the preseason-opening victory at Carolina.

It’s not, however — because he’s a veteran coming into a good defense who knows the coordinator and the scheme, and has an approach that’s prompted new teammates to accept him quickly.

That electrifying third-quarter punt return by Carolina rookie Joe Adams gave Texans’ special teams coach Joe Marciano a glimpse at something he’d like to see change:

Hey Panther Nation, I’m starting up a new series for post game day analysis. For every game this season I’m going to attempt to chart the offensive plays of the Panthers, as well as the different defensive fronts and coverages the Panthers Defense utilized. Based on that data, I will try to breakdown what worked well for the Panthers, in addition to what did not work out as planned. Hopefully from this data we can discern the Coaching Staff’s Gameplan for the previous week, along with what the Staff might try to do moving forward.
