Carolina Panthers waive tackle Bruce Campbell, receiver Kealoha Pilares

The Carolina Panthers have waived offensive tackle Bruce Campbell and wide receiver/kick returner Kealoha Pilares.

Campbell tore his rotator cuff earlier this month and was expected to miss the entire season, which he will. Campbell emerged as a workout warrior at the 2010 NFL Combine. He appeared in just 19 games in three seasons with the Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers have had their fair share of issues with the offensive line during training camp as they have made a flurry of roster moves regarding their line.

Wide receiver and kick returner Kealoha Pilares injured his knee during Thursday night’s pre-season game against the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. Pilares was a fifth round pick for the Panthers back in 2011 out of Hawaii.

He only had two receptions for 42 yards and a receiving touchdown. The Hawaii native took over kick returning duties replacing Mike Goodson in 2011. He set a franchise record with a 101 yard kick return for a touchdown against the Detroit Lions on November 20th.

The Panthers also waived wide receiver Dale Moss, quarterback Colby Cameron, linebacker Ryan Rau, punter Jordan Gay, corner-back Nick Hixon, kicker Morgan Lineberry, defensive end Louis Nzegwu, safety Ricardo Silva and offensive lineman Justin Wells.
