Panthers coach Ron Rivera said "the hope" is to have DT Vernon Butler (knee) ready for the season opener.

Butler's Thursday MRI confirmed he's only dealing with a sprain. He'll miss the rest of the preseason, but has a chance to be back for Week 1. Butler will open the year in a rotational role if healthy.

Dang.  A sprain isn't a good way to start a season.  Glad he'll have time to heal some between now & then.

Better than a tare.  The way Butler was acting, I thought he tore a ligament for sure.  So a sprain is a relief considering the alternative.

I'm wondering about his leg strength and leg conditioning. This whole sprain/strain thing gives me pause for reflection.  Wonder if Kenn is working on this.?? Sprains are bad things. No surgical options, just rest and rehab. Sometimes it takes a long time. Fingers crossed..!!

From his reaction, I thought ACL, but I'm glad to hear it was just a sprain.

​ I copied and pasted this from the panthers.com site>>> http://www.panthers....0e-2ce46942a32c

{{{{{{Butler went down with about five minutes left in the first quarter of Wednesday's preseason opener against the Texans when he was blindsided by a crack-back block from offensive tackle Breno Giacomini. Butler pounded his fist in the turf as medical attention arrived.

Rivera said he sent a replay to the league for review. }}}}}}}

 

I still hadn't re-watched the game; What do you guys think about the crack-back block ?

 

I first thought it was a sucker punch and at the same time I said out loud; keep your head on a swivel Butler. When I coached School ball I was famous for telling players to "keep your head on a swivel". Always stay alert because there's always someone out there looking to take a blind side cheap shot.

You know, things have changed a lot since I played. We were actually taught to utilize crack back blocks as a first line technique. We would open holes in the line with a pulling guard and when the D player would come through he would be instantly met with a crack back coming down the line. The surprise "blind" hit would usually be enough to open up the hole for the RB. Tough players survived, others got hurt. These days the propensity for injuries keeps those "tough guy" plays off of the field for the most part. I hate players getting hurt, but it's a tough man's game. Seriously.....

Went back and reviewed frame by frame, clearly not an illegal block. It was shoulder to shoulder and the guy got in front of Butler. In fact, after reviewing frame by frame it is difficult to tell if the injury happened on that block (it appeared that Butler's foot was not firmly planted as the heel was up) or after the guy kept coming after him  

once he was down...doing his job, in my opinion.

 I always said that thinking slow on the football field will get you hurt. Some players naturally think fast some don't. Being clumsy will also get a player hurt among other things. I hope this will be a positive wake-up call for Butler

Yep.... Really need to stay alert. Things happen fast around the line of scrimmage...
