Carolina Panthers strong safety D.J. Campbell was giving directions in the defensive backfield Sunday. Campbell was telling reserve free safety Colin Jones, seeing his first defensive snaps of the season, what adjustments he needed to make, what to be alert for, what routes the Atlanta receivers had run from similar formations. That’s typical of a starter, but maybe less typical for a player such as Campbell, a rookie in the first start of his career, in only the second NFL game he had played.
