Winter Park Rewind: October 14 - 19

Posted Oct 20, 2013 looks back on the week that was at Winter Park via the "Winter Park Rewind."

October 14

After a depressing day at Mall of America Field on Sunday, things started off on Monday with Mike Wobschall's Monday Morning Mailbag where he looked back at what went wrong during the Panthers loss. Leslie Frazier addressed the media over the lunch-hour and announced that Desmond Bishop tore his right ACL on Sunday and is out for the year.  Here is an AP story on the team as a whole, and below you can watch Frazier's presser.

NFL Network sent us a pair of Josh Freeman-related videos on this day as well.
