Carolina Panthers assistant coach Sam Mills was diagnosed with cancer of the small intestine yesterday, hours before he coached the Panthers' linebackers in their preseason finale. Just 2 weeks ago, Carolina linebacker Mark Fields was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. "Any time someone in your family gets ill, it's a blow," general manager Marty Hurney said. "When it's Sam Mills, someone who means so much to this organization and this community, it's a huge blow. " Mills, 44, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, spent the final three seasons of his 12-year NFL career with the Panthers beginning with their inaugural season in 1995.

Scratch Mike Martz's name off the list of potential replacements for Dave Wannstedt in Miami. The St. Louis coach said yesterday there was no truth to a Miami Herald story that he would be interested in the Dolphins' head-coaching job if he is let go by the Rams. Despite an up-and-down season, St. Louis is 5-4 and tied for first in the NFC West. Citing sources close to Martz, Seattle's Mike Holmgren and Denver's Mike Shanahan, the Herald said the three would be interested in coaching the Dolphins next season if their current coaching situations did not work out. Wannstedt resigned earlier this month as coach of the Dolphins (1-8)

The Carolina Panthers may have found a replacement for Muhsin Muhammad yesterday, acquiring wide receiver Rod Gardner from the Washington Redskins. The deal is contingent upon Gardner passing a physical today, Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said. Hurney did not say what Carolina sent to Washington. Gardner, 27, started all 16 games in each of his four seasons in Washington, making 227 receptions for 2,997 yards and 22 touchdowns. His best season came in 2002 with 71 receptions for 1,006 yards and eight TDs. But Gardner's four seasons have been marked by inconsistency.

The Carolina Panthers signed All-Pro defensive tackle Kris Jenkins to a 5-year, $31 million contract extension yesterday, a deal that locks up their starting defensive line through at least 2007. Jenkins received a $9.175 million signing bonus in the deal that keeps him in Carolina through 2009. He is considered one of the cornerstones of Carolina's defense, which ranked second in the NFL last season. Defensive end Julius Peppers, the other cornerstone, is signed through 2008. Defensive end Mike Rucker and defensive tackle Brentson Buckner are both signed through 2007.

Here's one to make Cleveland fans shake their heads: A partial owner of the hated Pittsburgh Steelers is buying the Browns. A person with knowledge of the sale told the Associated Press on Thursday that Browns owner Randy Lerner has reached a deal to sell the team to Tennessee truck-stop magnate Jimmy Haslam III - a minority stockholder in the rival Steelers. Lerner will sell 70 percent of the Browns to Haslam now, with the other 30 percent reverting to him four years after the closing date, the person said on condition of anonymity because the sale has not officially been announced.

When the Carolina Panthers drafted Southern California receiver Dwayne Jarrett in the second round Saturday, Keyshawn Johnson was ecstatic. "This is a great pick. We need another wide receiver," Johnson gushed while working as a draft analyst for ESPN. "This guy is much like me. I'm going to teach him how to play from the point of attack. " He won't get the chance. The Panthers deemed their older former USC receiver was expendable yesterday. Johnson, the 6-4 possession receiver and 1996 No. 1 overall pick, was released to make way for a younger 6-4 possession receiver taken with the 45th pick.

Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith was sent home from training camp yesterday after he punched teammate Ken Lucas at practice, leaving the starting cornerback holding an icepack on his left eye before he was carted to the locker room. Panthers coach John Fox said Smith and Lucas returned to Charlotte, about 80 miles away, after the fight. Neither player was present for the team's second practice last night. The Panthers didn't provide an update on the extent of Lucas' injuries and club officials declined to say if the volatile Smith, the team's top receiver, would be suspended.

Julius Peppers still wants out of Carolina, but he will agree to be traded only to four teams, further complicating the Panthers' efforts to get compensation for the four-time Pro Bowl defensive end, the Associated Press reported. On the eve of the deadline to place the franchise tag on Peppers, a person close to the player told the AP yesterday that the impending free agent wants to play for Dallas or three other unnamed teams. Two of those teams reportedly are in the NFC, with speculation in some reports that they are in the NFC South, the Panthers' division.

The formula for fixing the Eagles is simple enough: Hire a smart, up-and-coming young head coach and obtain a franchise quarterback. Shake well, serve hot, and wait for the Super Bowl runs to commence. So explain the Carolina Panthers - the 2-8 Carolina Panthers, who will appear at Lincoln Financial Field Monday in a prime-time matchup that has ESPN execs doubling up on their meds. In 2010, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson faced a situation very much like the one Jeffrey Lurie faces this year.

On his way out as Browns president, Mike Holmgren would not rule out a return to coaching in the NFL. Holmgren, who is stepping down after three years in Cleveland, would not commit Tuesday to staying for the remainder of this season to work with new owner Jimmy Haslam. Holmgren said he would like to help Haslam and incoming CEO Joe Banner in their transition, but doesn't know if that will be possible. "I want to feel like I'm contributing," Holmgren said. "If I could help one player or one coach be a little better and I feel like I'm contributing, that could happen.

With Terrell Owens watching the second half from the locker room, the Dallas Cowboys had to depend on their running game and their defense to avoid a second consecutive upset loss. Tony Romo threw for 257 yards and a touchdown and the Cowboys overcame the loss of Owens to a left-ankle injury in a 20-13 win over the Carolina Panthers last night. While Dallas (13-2) moved a step closer to clinching home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, the Cowboys were dealing with another injury to a key offensive player.

Vinny Testaverde won the Heisman Trophy the same year his new Carolina teammate Dwayne Jarrett was born. He was the No. 1 overall pick 8 years before the Panthers entered the NFL. He has thrown more passes than have been thrown in Carolina's history. Yet the soon-to-be 44-year-old Testaverde - the man nicknamed "Dad" by his new teammates - could start Sunday for the banged-up Panthers at Arizona. "I'm just surprised that people are still interested in a 44-year-old quarterback that hasn't played in 5 or 6 weeks," Testaverde said yesterday.

The Carolina Panthers yesterday released wide receiver Rod Gardner, who caught only nine passes in 13 games after being acquired from Washington in a summer trade. The former first-round draft pick of the Redskins had 84 receiving yards and a touchdown. "It was a situation where there are other receivers ahead of him on the depth chart and it became fairly apparent to us that he would not be in our long-term plans," Carolina general manager Marty Hurney said. "We felt like this was the right opportunity to give Rod a chance to catch on with another team.
