BATTLE OF THE WEEK: Geoff Hangartner vs. Ryan Kalil for a starting O-line spot -- Kalil is out as the temporary starting center and Hangartner is in as the starting right guard. Justin Hartwig moved back to center. Kalil has also been tried out at RG this week as well. The Panthers are shifting because Jeremy Bridges will miss the first two games because of a suspension.
EXPECTED BATTLE OF THE WEEK: Deke Cooper vs. Nate Salley for starting FS job -- Cooper is still working with the first team, but Salley's knee is getting better and he may steal some reps this week.
OTHER BATTLE FRONTS: Jon Beason vs. Na'il Diggs for starting WLB spot -- Diggs is back on the shelf for a few days and that means Beason is with the starters again. This time, expect him to stay there.
