Tom Sorensen of the Charlotte Observer penned a nice article chronicling Jared Green's success through the Panthers' training camp. I especially like this camp story, which sounds extremely similar to a very famous Tony Dorsett story we all know:

[In practice,] Newton is intercepted by middle linebacker Jon Beason. Beason has momentum and, if you know him, one purpose: score. Nobody is close to him. Green runs him down six yards short of the end zone. "Most people can't catch me," says Beason, breathing hard. "But Darrell Green's son is fast."

Jared Green, listed at 6'1", 191 pounds, received attention running a 4.38 40 at his Pro Day. Panthers GM Marty Hurney has nothing but good things to say on his chances of making the team:

"Yeah. We've got a long way to go. But it's hard to find guys who can run like that. He's got great bloodlines. Not only is Darrell one of the terrific people you'll meet, but he was a pro. And his son has a lot of those qualities."

The Redskins host the Carolina Panthers week nine on November 14th just before their BYE week. Here's some video highlights as well.
