Panthers cut Charles Godfrey

The Carolina Panthers have released defensive back Charles Godfrey.

They promoted Chris Scott to the active roster.

Godfrey has played seven years for the Panthers.

He's a former third-round draft pick.

Godfrey hasn't been the same since injuring his Achilles last season.

"Making this move was difficult because Charles has been a large part of what we have done since I came to Carolina four years ago," coach Ron Rivera said in a statement. "He has always tried to do everything we have asked of him and worked extremely hard. He is an outstanding young man and we wish him the very best."
