Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones doesn't complete Panthers cornerback James Bradberry the way he did former Carolina corner Josh Norman. However, Bradberry's performance against Jones may help him get a big deal like Norman's five-year, $75 million contract with the Redskins after two big games against Jones in 2015.

Cornerback James Bradberry said he is ready to go against Atlanta. So is LT Greg Little, who has cleared the concussion protocol that he has been in for about six weeks. Coach Ron RIvera couldnt day whether Little will start or not.

Reid: NFL's Kap workout 'feels like a PR stunt'

Eric Reid said of Colin Kaepernick's scheduled workout for NFL teams Saturday, "I'll believe it when I see it," and that the event organized by the league "feels like a PR stunt."

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera deferred to general manager Marty Hurney when asked if the team would attend Colin Kaepernick's workout in Atlanta on Saturday. Hurney has given no indication at this point.

Panthers LT Greg Little (concussion) took some reps today so progress for the second-round pick. Good sign James Bradberry took reps too.

If you like Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson, then based on what Eric Reid says about Colin Kaepernick's strengths you'll like him. Here is Reid's argument for a team signing his former teammate: “He has a rocket for an arm. He's tall so he can see over the pocket. And he's mobile. He's Lamar Jackson before Lamar Jackson. And he can still throw the ball.''

Eric Reid says the NFL continues to randomly drug test him more than other players as he was last year. The Panthers SS estimates he's been tested about seven times and pointed to the latest notice in his locker behind him. He still feels this is the result of his protest against social injustice during the anthem.

Panthers safety Eric Reid had a lot of interesting things to say about the NFL's scheduled workout for Colin Kaepernick, but this perhaps was the most interesting when asked if this was a sign of progress for his former teammate: “I'll quote Malcolm X. If you stick a knife nine inches in my back and pull it out six, it's not progress. It's still a knife in my back.''

With a banged up secondary the Panthers signed cornerback Corn Elder off the Giants' practice squad. Elder was drafted by Carolina in 2017 and spent two seasons with the team. He can play nickel and outside corner. Starting corner James Bradberry (groin) missed Sunday's game.

The Panthers claimed running back Mike Davis off waivers, a league source confirmed. The former fourth-round pick out of South Carolina was released by the Chicago Bears. He will add depth behind Christian McCaffrey, who entered Sunday's game leading the league In total yards from scrimmage. Ian Rapoport first reported.

Panthers coach Ron RIvera plans to send the controversial third-down roughing the passer penalty called on Gerald McCoy in the end zone with less than 5 minutes left in the first half to the league for clarification. McCoy said the refs told him it was for putting his full weight on Aaron Rodgers. He didn't agree. Mario Addison said it was a ‘'Bullsh**'' call. It cost Carolina a potential scoring opportunity trailing 14-10.
