Minicamp notes: Jon Beason displays energy, quickness
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jun 13, 2013
Linebacker Jon Beason was flying around the practice field Wednesday on the second day of the Panthers’ minicamp. Beason worked at strongside linebacker next to Luke Kuechly, who took Beason’s spot in the middle after Beason went down last season. Beason was one of the league’s better linebackers before his injury problems started and the Panthers think he can get back to that level. Beason, coming off knee and shoulder surgeries, spent most of the three weeks of organized team activities on the sideline, and it was assumed he wouldn’t see much action until training camp in July. But he figures it’s better than sitting out his first training camp with his new team. There’s been something that hasn’t been seen in quite some time during the past two years taking place at the Carolina Panthers’ minicamp the past couple of days. Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly was the Defensive Rookie of the Year last season and outside linebacker Thomas Davis has made a successful comeback from injury issues of his own.
