http://www.charlotteobserver.c...ects-to-be.htmlPro Bowl linebacker Jon Beason said he expects to remain in the middle when the Panthers face Dallas on Oct. 21 after the bye week.
Beason missed Sunday’s 16-12 loss to Seattle with shoulder and knee injuries. Rookie Luke Kuechly, the first-round pick who started in Beason’s place, had one of his best games with 11 tackles and an interception.
Beason said in no uncertain terms he wanted to stay in the middle, adding the coaching staff indicated he would.
“That’s what’s been communicated to me, so I’m sticking with that,” Beason said Monday. “ I've been playing the Mike thus far, and I don’t anticipate anything different.well sometimes you don't get what you want Mr.Beason

Linebacker is the Panthers' deepest position on defense. In addition to Beason and Kuechly, Davis has returned strong following three ACL surgeries on his right knee.
Anderson, whose 174 tackles last season topped Beason's mark of 169 set in 2009, set a Panthers single-game record with 20 tackles in a 30-28 loss to Atlanta on Sept. 30. Jordan Senn is the special teams captain, but played well in seven starts at linebacker in 2011.
“We've got a talented linebacking corps, and that's a good problem for us

Let him come back 100% next year instead of being a question mark from week to week and being a liability on the field. Next camp let him battle with TD or Anderson for one of the outside spots. Kuechly was a monster inside and it was his first time.
