Richardson Recovery Going Well

Panthers' owner Jerry Richardson is currently progressing very nicely following his recent heart transplant and his prognosis is good.

In fact, the 72-year old Richardson even made a surprise visit to the Panthers' practice facility late last week, where the popular team owner received a thunderous round of applause from his players.

"He's a very special man," Panthers' quarterback Jake Delhomme said.  "He knows his players personally and he cares about us.  We really appreciate that."

"He said he's doing great and that everything is going well", Carolina coach John Fox added.  "And I thought he looked great.  It was great to see him out here today."

It was indeed.  Here's to the continued good health of Mr. Richardson!
