The Carolina Panthers would have been hoping to fly under the radar as the head in to the 2015 NFL season.
They haven't been afforded that luxury however, with the news that one star player suffered what looks like an incredibly serious injury.
Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was supposed to be a star for the Panther's this season, being the vocal point of their offense, but he might not even make the field in 2015.

Benjamin appeared to twist his left leg during a 1 on 1 drill while trying to make a cut, and went down without contact, which is always ominous. He immediately grabbed his knee, and was taken from the field on the cart.
Benjamin's Panthers teammates all ran to the stricken wideout and they took a knee around him as he was tended to and taken off the field.
This is a huge loss for the Panthers, it could seriously be the difference between them making the playoffs and coming bottom in their division. Benjamin was the Panthers leading receiver last season and was their biggest offensive threat.
Jeff Zell of WCCB Sports tweeted out this video of Benjamin twisting his knee and hitting the floor.
Nothing has been confirmed of course, but it just looks bad. The Panthers will look for Devin Funchess to step and be a big part of the offense now.
