Ron Rivera Mulling Change At After Panthers FS Haruki Nakamura's Bad Day
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said backup safety Sherrod Martin will get more practice reps this week, and left open the possibility that Martin might replace starter Haruki Nakamura following Nakamura's nightmare day Sunday in a 30-28 loss to Atlanta.
Nakamura had four major blown assignments three on touchdown plays and another that led to Matt Bryant's game-winning field goal with five seconds left.
Nakamura took responsibility for the loss after the game, saying he cost the Panthers the win.
Martin started at free safety in 2010 and 2011, but fell out of favor last season with several missed tackles in the open field.
If we're going to evaluate, we're going to evaluate different combinations and what those possibilities can be I think when you go back and look at what happened in training camp, I didn't think Sherrod did a bad job, Rivera said. And we've got obviously until Sunday to make a decision on what we're going to do.
