The Carolina Panthers officially opened camp on Wednesday as players and coaches reported to the team’s facility. The day didn’t get off to a great start for linebacker A.J. Klein, though. He got into a fender bender as he backed his Lexus SUV into another car, doing a bit of damage to the back of his ride.

The car he hit was apparently a pickup truck, which explains why the dent was above the rear bumper.

Fortunately it was just a minor accident and nothing he can’t afford to fix. Still, not the start he was hoping for.
