Panthers begin roster cuts

The Panthers cut seven players and placed a promising young QB on injured reserve on Sunday, preparing for Tuesday's mandated deadline in which they must reduce their roster to 75 players.

The Carolina Panthers began their roster cuts this afternoon, waiving G Nathan Bennett, DT Brent Curvey, CB Kevin Garrett, WR Jahkeen Gilmore, T Eric Graham, S Jermaine Hardy and DT Chad Lavalais.

The team also placed third string QB Brett Basanez on injured reserve. According to the team's website, Basanez injured his right wrist in the fourth quarter of Friday's game against the Patriots.

The Panthers still need to cut four players (or make four roster movements) by 4:00 pm Tuesday.
