Will Grier scrambles for a touchdown.

There’s a reasonable case to be made he’s had a better preseason than PJ Walker. Not sure it’ll matter in terms of depth chart, but Grier needed a good preseason and has had one.

WR Shi Smith’s down next to the Panthers sideline, holding his arm. They got him up and took him straight to the blue tent.

Spencer Brown wants to make the roster. And with a couple of backup RBs hurt, he has a chance.

Sam Darnold is 19-25 for 162 yards, 2 TDs and a 119.1 passer rating.

And Santoso drills the extra point.

It’s happening.

Things haven’t been great for the offense this preseason, but Terrace Marshall and Chuba Hubbard look worthy.

Joey Slye goes wide right on a 49-yard FG.

Going for a fourth down early, rather than testing a kicker from the 20.

And, … Darnold can’t find an open receiver and throws incomplete.

As you’d like to see against the Steelers’ backups, Panthers’ starting defense forces a three-and-out.

Marquis Haynes, who tweaked a shoulder late in training camp, doesn’t look like he’s playing tonight. But he got a long on-field workout in earlier.

Behold, the largest kicker in Panthers franchise history, the 6-5, 260-pound Ryan Santoso (eclipsing, literally, the 6-5, 233-pound Joe Nedney). pic.twitter.com/tB6n0lLUJ1

Tonight is the first time since 2011 the Panthers will start their No. 1 QB in the preseason finale.

Panthers wearing white pants with blue socks tonight to go with the white jerseys.

I would pay an amount of my own hard-earned for a poster of the people Chinn’s going to honor this year.

Muggsy, then Pep. I’m hoping he comes through with Richard Petty, Dawn Staley, and Ric Flair by the end of the year. https://t.co/rsgHtQMUgf
