Several Carolina Panthers players were wearing red no-contact jerseys at today’s OTA practice. All participated in some form, though.

Among the long list of names that were in red today include defensive end Brian Burns and hybrid Jeremy Chinn. Apparently, both had offseason surgery. Head coach Matt Rhule shared that news in his post-practice press conference. Burns underwent a procedure on his shoulder, but there’s no specifics for Chinn as of yet.

These are arguably the two most important defensive pieces that the Panthers have on the roster right now.

Burns largely flew under the radar but played about as well as any edge defender in the NFL outside of T.J. Watt. Meanwhile, Chinn looked as impressive as any first-year defensive player not named Chase Young. Carolina will need both healthy once the games begin. Fortunately, there’s still a lot of time for these two and the other players in red to fully recover from whatever their offseason issues are.
