    The Observer projects how the Panthers will get from 75 to 53 players. The Panthers set their 53-man roster Saturday, but don't expect it to be their final one. Smith didn't have a great preseason, but the Panthers needed an extra back with Stewart out until at least Week 7. During his years heading the New York Giants' pro personnel department, Carolina first-year general manager Dave Gettleman was responsible for mining the waiver wire and cut lists to find players who could help the Giants. Former Panther Travelle Wharton was signed last week to help the offensive line, which has seen its depth depleted by nagging injuries to Amini Silatolu and Jeff Byers, and the knee and hamstring issues that sent rookie Edmund Kugbila to IR.
