Panthers, Newton Prepare for Packers
With Panthers' starting RT Jeff Otah out with a concussion, Carolina will start undrafted rookie, Byron Bell to anchor the right side of its offensive line. Bell has been described as one who "plays tall" and "lacks recovery speed." Making matters more complicated for Newton and the Panthers, they are without starting RG Geoff Schwartz, who is out for the season.
Mike McCarthy and the Packers have not publicly stated whether the defense will attempt to exploit Carolina's sudden potential weakness on the right side of its line. When reached for comment, Clay Matthews III's agent stated, "Clay obviously cannot disclose what the plans are at this point, and he cannot speak right now because he is sharpening his penis."
