The Carolina Panthers did their due diligence yesterday, having worked out punter Drue Chrisman alongside long snapper Turner Bernard. But, it seems they’re just fine with the leg they have there now.

On Tuesday, the team announced the signing of Ryan Winslow to the active roster. Winslow was an addition to the practice squad last week following the back injury to Joseph Charlton.

In his call-up in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings, the 27-year-old booted six punts for an average of 40.7 yards per attempt. Three of those six were pinned inside the Minnesota 20-yard line.

Winslow will be taking the roster spot of wideout Brandon Zylstra, who has been placed on the injured reserve after sustaining a hamstring injury in the loss. Despite his return to the game following the issue, the fourth-year receiver will sit the next few weeks out.

Over the team’s six games, Zylstra has caught eight passes on eight targets for 139 yards and a touchdown.

Additionally, in a second corresponding move, the Panthers have brought back rusher Reggie Bonnafon to take Winslow’s spot on the practice squad. Bonnafon has played in 18 career games, all for Carolina, over his three-year career.
