Gardner: "This week, hopefully I'll be out there."

Don't be surprised if the Panthers activate wide receiver Rod Gardner this week against the New England Patriots. Gardner was not among Carolina's 46 active players last week. "This week, hopefully I'll be out there," Gardner said. "Coach (John Fox) gave me a package and I'm working more with the (starters) and rotating a lot, so hopefully he'll give me a chance to compete and help our team do as best as we can."

Who is the Number 2 WR?

The departure of former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad left a huge gap in the wide receiving corp. Not only was Muhammad a huge contributor last season after Steve Smith with down for the year, he also contributed in blocking and team leadership. The start of the 2005 season brings two contenders for the position of the #2 receiver on the team. Both Kerry Colbert and newly acquired wide receiver Rod Gardner offer qualities that make them a benefit for the team.
