With game-time temperatures expected to be in the low 90's, the Panthers are wearing their white jerseys meaning the Bears will be in their typical home navy tops.
Dehydration could be a key issue. Carolina is used to these conditions. It was rarely this warm even during training camp for the Bears.
Saw safety Chris Harris at the team hotel the Bears are using last night. Also spotted former Bears fullback Thump Belton.
Harris has been visiting with former teammates on the field during warmups as has wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad.
