Panthers WR Brenton Bersin left Wednesday night's preseason opener with a left leg injury.

Bersin could put very little weight on his left leg as he was helped off the field by trainers. Bersin has been in contention for one of the Panthers' top-four wide receiver spots. Bersin is coming off of ankle surgery.

Panthers WR Brenton Bersin underwent ankle surgery and will miss the remainder of the offseason program.

The surgery was to remove a bone spur from Bersin's ankle. He expects to be back for training camp. Already in a competition for one of the final roster spots, Bersin needs to get healthy as soon as possible.

Panthers re-signed WR Brenton Bersin to a one-year contract.

Bersin was not tendered as a restricted free agent, so this deal is for less than the $1.797 million he would have made on the low tender. Bersin has been with the Panthers for three seasons, catching 24 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in 34 games. He will compete for one of the final receiver spots in camp.

Panthers waived WR Brenton Bersin.

Bersin looked poised for a big role coming out of the preseason, but he played just five snaps the first three weeks. The Panthers likely needed his roster spot to sign some help for the offensive line.

Brenton Bersin caught 1-of-2 targets for three yards Friday night against the Patriots.

Bersin did not see many targets, but he played plenty of snaps with the first-team offense on Friday night. He is unlikely to be worth a look in fantasy without a couple injuries, but Bersin could limit Devin Funchess' snaps if he keeps seeing first-team work.

Panthers signed WR Brenton Bersin off their practice squad.

With Jerricho Cotchery (ankle) sidelined, Bersin will serve as the fifth receiver against the Saints. TE Brandon Williams was waived in a corresponding move.

Panthers waived WRs Brenton Bersin and Mike Brown.

Bersin caught 13 passes over 15 games for the Panthers last season, but the arrival of Kevin Norwood in a trade earlier this week likely sealed his fate. Brown had 32 catches for the Jaguars in 2013, but spent part of 2014 on the practice squad before being released.

Panthers re-signed WR Brenton Bersin to a one-year contract.

Bersin was an exclusive rights free agent. A 2012 UDFA, he posted a 13-151-1 line while looking shaky as a return man last year. Bersin will compete for a roster spot in camp.

Brenton Bersin caught one pass for 11 yards in Saturday's Divisional Round loss at Seattle.

A 2012 UDFA out of tiny Wofford, Bersin beat out more noted receivers for a roster spot in camp. The former practice squadder ended up appearing in 15 regular season games, going 13-151-1 as a receiver while pitching in as a (shaky) return man. Bersin also has salon quality hair. The bad news is he's slow (4.60 speed), the NFL stage appears too big for him and he will have to fight for a roster spot again in 2015.

With Kelvin Benjamin nursing a bruised left knee, third-year UDFA Brenton Bersin is running with the Panthers' first-team offense.

Bersin and Jerricho Cotchery have been the outside receivers, with Jason Avant in the slot. Bersin appears to have leapfrogged Marvin McNutt, Tavarres King, and Tiquan Underwood on the depth chart. A Wofford alum, 24-year-old Bersin stands 6-foot-3, 210 with modest 4.60 speed and a 35-inch vertical. Put simply, the Panthers need their top receivers to stay healthy this season.
