Panthers waive WR Pilares, trim roster by 12

The Panthers have announced they’ve waived 11 players, including

injured wide receiver Kealoha Pilares.

Pilares was the team’s fifth-round draft pick in 2011 and but

caught only two passes in two seasons with the Panthers. He did

have a 101-yard kickoff return for the touchdown last year.

Like Pilares, offensive tackle Bruce Campbell and fullback Mike

Zordich were also waived/injured. Players who are waived/injured

revert back to the club’s injured reserve list upon the next waiver

period.

The Panthers also waived quarterback Colby Cameron, punter

Jordan Gay, cornerback Nick Hixson, kicker Morgan Lineberry, wide

receiver Dale Moss, defensive end Louis Nzegwu, linebacker Ryan

Rau, safety Ricardo Silva and guard Justin Wells.
