Panthers re-sign DE Efe Obada, place CB on injured reserve

Efe Obada is back. Just a day after waiving the popular defensive end, the Carolina Panthers have re-signed him to the active 53-man roster. Obada rounds out a relatively strong but young edge rotation.

To make room for Obada, the team placed cornerback Eli Apple on the injured reserve list. Under the new rules, he will be allowed to return to the roster in three weeks. We had projected Apple would start at outside cornerback. With him sidelined, that job will go to either rookie Troy Pride Jr. or Rasul Douglas, who was just picked up off waivers.

The team also announced that they have added fifth-round pick Kenny Robinson and offensive tackle Matt Kaskey to the practice squad, who were both waived along with Obada on Sunday. They still have one spot on the practice squad left, which is expected to be filled by former Rams linebacker Clay Johnston.
