The article focuses on the players of the football team Carolina Panthers. Jordan Gross has made a strong transition back to right tackle--where the coaches believe he is more effective--after a year on the left. After filling in for MLB Dan Morgan, suffering from ankle injury, for two games, Chris Draft has started to split snaps with SLB Brandon Short. The shift from Stephen Davis to DeShaun Foster at running back has changed the offense. The bulk of the running game still goes between the tackles, but Foster's speed makes him a home run threat, and the team is trying to take advantage by getting him outside more.
