Panthers Cut CB Bene Benwikere

CHARLOTTE, NC– The Carolina Panthers have reportedly released cornerback Bene Benwikere and say they promoted Zack Sanchez from the practice squad.

The change happened in the wake of Julio Jones’ record setting 300 yard game against the Falcons Sunday.

Benwikere was covering Jones’ on a number of deep passes and said missing the early part of training camp played a role in his conditioning.

Sanchez, was one of three cornerbacks selected after the departure of Josh Norman.
