Cornerback Ross Cockrell, who joined the Panthers on a two-year deal in free agency, was carted off the field Monday with a broken leg, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The team announced that Cockrell will undergo surgery after fracturing his left tibia and fibula.
Here are other injuries we are monitoring:
- Oakland Raiders second-year cornerbackGareon Conley is expected to miss the next couple weeks of training camp because of a strained hip, Rapoport and NFL Network's Jim Trotter reported. Raiders coach Jon Gruden said it would be a "fair assessment" to expect Conley out for a few weeks. Conley has missed the last few practices because of the issue. A nagging shin injury limited him to two games last season.
- Denver Broncos left tackle Garett Bolles was carted off the field on Monday after taking a shot to the chin. Broncos coach Vance Joseph told reporters he is being evaluated for a head injury, but he was later medically cleared to take part in the team's afternoon walkthrough. In addition, linebacker Brandon Marshall suffered a minor wrist injury, Joseph said.
