Panthers rookie WR working on ball-protection techniques

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers drafted wide receiver D.J. Moore in the first round this past April because of his ability to make plays after the catch.

But Moore's gift for turning nothing into something got him into trouble last Sunday after fumbling twice - once following a reception and again on a punt return - while fighting for extra yards. The Redskins turned those two turnovers into 10 points and defeated the Panthers 23-17.

The Panthers are not fazed by the miscues, and coach Ron Rivera plans to continue to target the speedy Moore.
