With starting left tackle Cameron Erving out due to a neck injury, the Carolina Panthers have to get a little resourceful today against the Philadelphia Eagles. And apparently, they’re going right to their most valuable resource on the offensive line.

As reported by Darin Gantt of Panthers.com, Taylor Moton will get the start on the blindside for Carolina in Week 5. Moton, the reliable pillar on the opposite side, has started as the right tackle in each of the team’s games dating back to the 2018 season.

The fifth-year lineman has, however, gotten some reps on the left throughout the summer. He’s also taken 102 career snaps at the position.

Christensen, who was the presumed favorite to land these honors today, will actually make his first start as a pro in Moton’s spot. The 2021 third-rounder racked up snaps from both sides during preseason play, with 70 coming on the right and 20 from the left.
