Panthers trim roster to regular-season limit 53 players

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers trimmed their roster to the mandated 53-player limit.

Among the cuts were 2017 third-round draft pick Daeshon Hall, of Texas A&M, and wide receiver Mose Frazier, who scored three preseason touchdowns.

The Panthers are sticking with two quarterbacks – Cam Newton and Taylor Heinicke – after parting ways with Garrett Gilbert and Kyle Allen.
