The Panthers claimed former Lions FB Jerome Felton off waivers. According to multiple reports, the Vikings and Eagles also put in a claim.

The Lions cut Felton earlier this week. In his three seasons in Detroit, Felton played in 42 games. Last season, he appeared in all 16 games with two starts.

Felton has 126 career rushing yards and 240 receiving yards. Carolina's starting fullback, Tony Fiammetta, suffered a concussion in the team's preseason opener and has not practiced since the injury.
