SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kawann Short says he won't stage a contract holdout this season while awaiting a new deal from the Carolina Panthers.

Short reported to training camp on time Wednesday and says he'll play this season under his current deal if he doesn't receive a contract extension. The defending NFC champions begin practice Thursday night at Wofford College.

Short says "It's not about the contract, it's about helping this team. I love the Carolina Panthers. Hopefully things will get done."
