WR David Getts Could be Back by the End of the Week

Joseph Person from the Charlotte Observer reports Panthers coach Ron Rivera said trainers are optimistic the Panthers’ third-year wideout David Getts could be back on the field by the end of the week.

It won’t be in time for Gettis to play in Saturday’s exhibition against Houston. But it’s a step for a player who has been out since tearing his ACL here last summer.

“The biggest thing about David is just continuing to work and see how those things go. It’s one of those things that are still bothering him. And the hard part is it’s on the leg that’s bothering him, on the knee that was repaired so you really have to be careful,” Rivera said Monday.

“He can’t do limited things with us in terms of offensively so he’s had to work to the side and just trying to push himself through. … Maybe in the next 4-5 days we’ll be able to get him out there. But it won’t give him time to prepare to play in the first preseason game.”
