This article focuses on the Carolina Panthers rugby football team in the U.S. In an attempt to shake up a stagnant running game, the team has turned to DeShaun Foster as its feature back. Foster has been plagued by injuries and fumbles throughout his career. Stephen Davis can no longer break long runs. Football player Mike Minter is having a solid season after moving from strong safety. Winter is a smart veteran who tackles well and doesn't make a lot of mistakes. Marion McCree, signed to be a backup, has turned into a solid starter.
