SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -The Carolina Panthers waived tackle Charles Spencer on Thursday for what coach John Fox calls a ``conditioning issue.''
The Panthers claimed Spencer off waivers from Houston two days before players reported to training camp. The former third-round pick hasn't played in the NFL since breaking his leg during his rookie season in 2006.
Spencer had missed several practices for what the team called a sore knee, but Fox said Thursday he was let go because of ``conditioning and weight.''
The Panthers did not immediately replace Spencer on the 80-man roster. Fox said he wasn't sure if they'd sign a player before Saturday's preseason opener against Indianapolis.
