Panthers sign ex-Bill Harris for LB depth, waive center Justice

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- The Carolina Panthers have signed former Buffalo Bills linebacker Nic Harris to add depth after sustaining numerous injuries at the position.

The Panthers made room for Harris on their 80-man roster Saturday by waiving injured offensive lineman Steve Justice.

Already without linebacker Thomas Davis, who tore a knee ligament in June, the Panthers practiced Saturday morning without Jamar Williams (shoulder), Jordan Senn (shoulder) and Quinton Culberson (thigh).

Harris was the Bills' fifth-round draft pick in 2009 and played in 15 games last season. The former Oklahoma safety was waived in July after failing his physical because of injury.

Justice, a center out of Wake Forest, was far down the depth chart and missed practice Saturday morning because of a sore back.
