Rivera: Panthers may blitz more with Hardy out

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers are considering blitzing more with Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy having accepted a paid leave of absence to deal with his domestic violence case.

Hardy, the team's franchise player and top pass rusher, isn't expected to return until late November at the earliest.

Carolina's fifth-ranked defense doesn't typically blitz more than a handful of times during a game, preferring instead to get pressure on the quarterback with its talented four-man base front. But without Hardy, who had 15 sacks last year, coach Ron Rivera knows applying pressure might be more of a challenge forcing defensive coordinator Sean McDermott to gamble more and amp up the team's blitz package.
