The Panthers venture from the Carolina countryside and pay a visit to the Steel City on Thursday night to meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in the final game of preseason play for the two teams. The contest will take place in Heinz Field and is scheduled to begin at 7:00ET.
Carolina (2-1) did to the Jets the same thing their previous 2 opponents had done, by not allowing a touchdown in their 17-12 victory over NY on Sunday. Jonathan Stewart twisted an ankle in that one, but it is not believed to be serious. He will certainly rest it on Thursday, joining many other Carolina and Pittsburgh regulars who will sit this one out in preparation for the start of the regular season on Sept.9th. The Panthers cut veteran place kicker Olindo Mare after just signing him to a 4 year contract prior to the beginning of last season. Another kicking veteran, punter, Nick Harris was also let go.
