We’re not sure if we can bust out the ol’ “It’s Happening!” GIF just yet. But as long as the Carolina Panthers continue to tease us, it’s staying in the queue.

Many fans got yet another look at their offensive-line fantasy at Thursday’s practice, as Taylor Moton received the healthier amount of first-team reps at left tackle against the Baltimore Ravens. Moton, who is still regarded as the team’s starting right tackle, then had his usual spot covered by Trent Scott as a result of the shift.

While much of this can be attributed to the absence of Cameron Erving, who was off to the side and had his day end early, the prospect of a possible move for Moton is becoming more realistic. We’re currently on the last training camp outing of the season and he is still getting work from the blindside as the supposed incumbent has struggled to maintain a presence.

Erving’s current injury issues and underwhelming play over his six previous seasons could also serve as a potential precursor to Moton eventually manning the left. The newly-extended, newly-turned-27-year-old is already penciled in as the second option at the position. It may just take a prolonged recovery or a few slip-ups on Erving’s part at the beginning of the season to help this come to fruition.
