Panthers Players Want To Make Lasting Impact On Social Injustice
Matt Rhule Supported Players' Decision Not To Practice '100 Percent'
Instead of practicing, Panthers players held a team meeting to discuss social injustice. WCCB Sports Anchor Kelli Bartik has more from training camp.
The Panthers are taking their time when it comes to making a lasting impact.
Players were back on the practice field for the first time since cancelling Saturday’s practice, opting to instead meet as a team, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. While Matt Rhule would not get into details about the conversations he had with his players, the Panthers head coach says he supports them and their decision not to practice “100 percent.”
Veteran safety Tre Boston believes he and his teammates made progress on Saturday, but stayed quiet on what they plan to do to make a change, saying there’s no quick fix when it comes to social injustice.
