Blog on the Run: Reloaded

One key link is gone

Filed under: Panthers — Lex @ 9:48 pm

Kevin Donnalley, the Carolina Panthers’ starting left right offensive guard, is retiring after a 13-year NFL career capped by the Panthers’ recent Super Bowl appearance.

This isn’t a surprise. He’s been living on borrowed time — albeit living large — since a knee injury in 2001. And the Panthers have been going for youth the past couple of years. But he started every game for the Panthers the past two years and has made a huge difference in both run blocking and pass blocking. Stephen Davis, as well as he played, likely wouldn’t have topped 1,400 rushing yards without Donnalley in that line.

G’bye, Kevin, and thanks for all you’ve done.
