Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis played a short but sweet amount of time

Lukeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and Davis played the entire first drive and were pulled out of the game by Ron Rivera because that is all they needed to show. They both looked like they were on the same level as where they left off last season. I expected to see them for one more drive but Rivera didn’t need to see anymore. I do not blame Rivera because they do not need to take any chances with them. These two players are always prepared and are two of the hardest working players on the team. I expect much of the same from them this entire preseason. Expect to see them a little bit more in the 3rd preseason game which is usually the dress rehearsal for most teams.
