Running backs DeAndre Torrey and Stevie Scott III, have now been released by the Eagles and Broncos respectively, in addition to Lance Lenoir who was waived by the Eagles after coming to terms with an Injury Settlement. This now leaves three Panthers currently employed by NFL teams as teams continue to cut players to get down to the sacred number of 53 active players.
Torrey the late season addition for the Panthers, played in both pre-season games for the Eagles totaled 3 carries for 13 yards. Scott who many thought could be a Broncos practice squad addition totaled 11 carries for 33 yards and 3 receptions for 10 yards.
Also getting waived was Lance Lenoir, who after clearing waivers with an injury designation was officially released by the Eagles. Lenoir, Scott and Torrey join Tino Ellis also former Panthers now looking for their next opportunity.
Currently, TJ Carter, Jameson Houston, and Ishmael Hyman are now the last group of the original seven Panthers still in NFL camp. With the final set of roster cuts set for August 30th, the final three Panthers have one more week and game to prove to NFL teams they are able to compete and be on a roster. Currently of the 51 former USFL players to sign NFL contracts 22 have been released/waived with one more week left of NFL training camp.
