Returns a concern for Panthers


CHARLOTTE - The Carolina Panthers might have to use an inexperienced to return punts in the season opener Sunday against the Eagles.

Attempts to bring back last year's return man, Mark Jones, were derailed yesterday when he failed a physical. Jones was cut by Tennessee after being slowed by a preseason hamstring injury.

The Panthers were looking for an upgrade after Kenny Moore and Captain Munnerlyn struggled fielding punts in preseason.

Munnerlyn is a rookie, while Moore is a second-year pro who has never appeared in a regular-season game. Rookie Mike Goodson is expected to return kickoffs against the Eagles.
