Panthers Eric Reid Calls Eagles Malcolm Jenkins a ‘Sellout’ Over Protest Movement

Eric Reid and Malcolm Jenkins turned the fight for racial and social justice into a skirmish on the field. Reid then went on offense with his postgame comments, calling the Eagles safety and co-founder of The Players Coalition “a sellout.”

Reid split from the coalition last year because Jenkins had excluded Colin Kaepernick from meetings, and asked players if they would stop protesting during the national anthem if the NFL made a charitable donation to causes they support.

Reid, who signed with the Panthers in September, said he believed he no longer had shared interests with the socially-active coalition and would continue on his own path with the unsigned Kaepernick, who was the first player to sit and then kneel during the anthem to protest racism and police brutality.

“We believe a lot of players should have stepped up for Colin,” Reid said Sunday after the Panthers beat the Eagles 21-17. “I believe Malcolm capitalized on the situation. He co-opted the movement that was started by Colin to get his organization funded. It’s cowardly. He sold us out.”

Jenkins took the high road when told in the Eagles’ locker room of the criticism.

“I’m not going to get up here and say anything negative about that man,” Jenkins said. “I respect him. I’m glad he has a job. I’m glad he’s back in the league. I’ll leave it like that.”

Reid, who was not supposed to be at midfield, and Jenkins jawed at each other shortly before kickoff.

Reid continued his tradition of taking a knee during “The Star-Spangled Banner,” while none of his Carolina teammates joined him or stood near him at midfield. Reid is trying to call attention to social and racial injustice.

“It’s systematic oppression which is what I’m protesting and neocolonialism,” he said. “Man, it keeps happening.”

Panthers TE Greg Olsen Does Individual Drills in Practice

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen participated in individual drills on Thursday and could be trending towards a return to the playing field earlier than projected according to beat writer Joe Person on Twitter.

Olsen was spotted running routes and working on the sled during the portion of practice open to the media. He could still draw a “DNP” designation on the injury report, but Olsen is clearly trending in the correct direction.

He could return Week 6 against Washington Redskins, which would be a huge boost for quarterback Cam Newton and the rest of the Panthers offense. Olsen suffered a foot injury in Week 1 similar to his Jones fracture in 2017 but the team has kept him on the active roster in hopes he could return.

Look’s like that gamble may be paying off.

Panthers LT Matt Kalil Week-To-Week After Knee Scope

The Panthers got some bad news on the injury front on Wednesday, as Pro Football Rumors reports that left tackle Matt Kalil is week to week after a knee scope.

Here’s the report:

Panthers left tackle Matt Kalil is week-to-week after undergoing a knee scope, according to David Newton of ESPN.com. Tom Pelissero of NFL.com (Twitter link) first reported Kalil would seek a second opinion on his knee from renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

Kalil, 29, has been durable for most of his NFL tenure: while he missed 14 games with a hip injury in 2016, he’s played in all 16 games in every other season of his career. His current knee injury been hampering him during training camp, and given his week-to-week diagnosis, it’s unclear if Kalil will be available for the start of the regular season.
