 Latest Panthers Player Notes
Nov 22 2017 - Ryan Kalil
  C Ryan Kalil (neck) have been at practice this week and could play this week against the Jets.


Nov 22 2017 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey's role as a punt and/or kickoff returner could increase with the season-ending injury to WR Curtis Samuel, head coach Ron Rivera said.


Nov 22 2017 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen has been full-speed ahead in his recovery from a broken bone in his foot. He has been pleased with how his return to practice has gone. "I feel good about going out there and taking the next step," Olsen said. "I feel pretty confident that it will be OK."


Nov 22 2017 - Captain Munnerlyn
  CB Captain Munnerlyn didn't practice Wednesday because of illness.


Nov 22 2017 - Jairus Byrd
  S Jairus Byrd had an interception during practice off quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey, who filled in when the team's two backup quarterbacks missed a day of practice because of illness. The Panthers turned to Dorsey because they are being careful about the number of balls thrown by QB Cam Newton.


Nov 22 2017 - Garrett Gilbert
  QB Garrett Gilbert, who is the Panthers' No. 3 quarterback, missed Monday's practice because of illness but was back at work Wednesday.


Nov 22 2017 - Derek Anderson

Nov 20 2017 - Ryan Kalil
  C Ryan Kalil has said he wants to be back in action for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. He has been bothered by a neck ailment since September. Kalil came back briefly for one game but ended back on the sideline and a timetable for his return has been difficult to decipher. "It feels the best it has felt the whole season," Kalil said.


Nov 20 2017 - Damiere Byrd
  WR Damiere Byrd has returned to practice. If he's ready to go in a couple of weeks when he can come off injured reserve, it could ease concerns about the depleted receiving corps.


Nov 20 2017 - Tyler Larsen
  C Tyler Larsen, who has played the majority of the season with C Ryan Kalil injured, didn't participate in Monday's workout. He suffered a foot injury in the Miami game.


Nov 20 2017 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen is back at practice. He's eligible to be activated this week after suffering a broken foot a couple of months ago.


Nov 15 2017 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel will have surgery on his left ankle and is out for the season.


Nov 15 2017 - Christian McCaffrey

Nov 15 2017 - Damiere Byrd
  WR Damiere Byrd (forearm) is on track to come off injured reserve for the first weekend in December. That would make him eligible to play against the New Orleans Saints.


Nov 15 2017 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen (foot) is expected to be given a chance for regular practice on Monday when the Panthers return to game preparation and he could play Nov. 26 against the New York Jets. In the meantime, he'll be a guest analyst for Fox on Sunday's telecast of the Los Angeles Rams-Minnesota Vikings game.


Nov 15 2017 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey added 27 receiving yards, becoming the single-season franchise leader in receiving yards for a running back. He has 433, which is 20 more than RB Jonathan Stewart compiled in 2011.


Nov 15 2017 - Greg Van Roten
  C/G Greg Van Roten was summoned to play center when Tyler Larsen went out with a second-half foot injury. Van Roten is the third-string center.


Nov 15 2017 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel, a rookie who also is a return specialist, exited Monday night's game with an apparent ankle injury. The Panthers announced Tuesday he will have surgery and be placed on reserve/injured.


Nov 14 2017 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel will undergo season-ending left ankle surgery, the Panthers announced Tuesday. Samuel was injured during Monday's 45-21 victory over the Dolphins when his foot was rolled on by Miami safety Reshad Jones in the third quarter. Samuel caught a season-high five passes prior to being injured. The second-round pick finishes his season with 15 receptions for 115 yards. Samuel's improvement was one of the factors for why the Panthers traded WR Kelvin Benjamin to the Bills prior to the trading deadline.


Nov 14 2017 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton threw four touchdown passes in the Panthers' 45-21 victory over the Dolphins on Monday night. Newton was 21 of 35 for 254 yards. He also rushed for 95 yards on five carries, including a 69-yard burst in the third quarter.


Nov 14 2017 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey helped build the lead to 10-0 on Monday against against the Dolphins, scoring on a nifty move on a 4-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to cap a 12-play, 85-yard drive that consumed almost 6 1/2 minutes. He reached 425 receiving yards this season, a franchise record for a running back.


Nov 14 2017 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess caught two touchdown passes in the 45-21 win over the Dolphins on Monday night, the last a 32-yarder from Cam Newton with 8:20 remaining. The Panthers went up 24-7 on the first possession of the second half when Funchess scored on a 28-yard screen pass from Newton. "Everything was feeling good and everything was just fun," Funchess said.


Nov 14 2017 - Jonathan Stewart
  RB Jonathan Stewart picked up a season-high 110 rushing yards on 17 attempts in Monday's win over the Dolphins. Carolina racked up more than 200 rushing yards for the

Nov 10 2017 - Greg Olsen

Nov 10 2017 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel injured an ankle in practice Wednesday, but by Friday he indicated he'll be ready for Monday night's game. Samuel is a key part of the team's plan to upgrade downfield pass routes because of his speed, particularly after the recent trade of WR Kelvin Benjamin to the New York Jets.


Nov 10 2017 - Mike Adams
  S Mike Adams was in the concussion protocol by midweek, though by the end of the week he was cleared for practice and expecting to seek clearance for Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins. His injury was first believed to be a shoulder stinger from the victory against Atlanta, and he conducted postgame interviews discussing his key interception in the game. Then when the injury report came out, it was listed as a concussion.


Nov 8 2017 - Alex Armah
  FB Alex Armah has taken some practice repetitions at tight end and that came in handy last week when backup TE Chris Manhertz went into concussion protocol. Armah's versatility was convenient "so we could do some things we worked on," head coach Ron Rivera said.


Nov 8 2017 - Trai Turner
  G Trai Turner has alleviated concerns about his ailments. After the victory against Atlanta, head coach Ron Rivera said that Turner played his best game to date.


Nov 8 2017 - Mike Adams
  S Mike Adams, a first-year member of the Panthers, has an interception in each of the past two games. He's tied with teammate S Kurt Coleman with 14 interceptions since 2014, marking the fourth-most in the NFL during that span.


Nov 8 2017 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey finally got untracked in the rushing attack by picking up a season-high 66 yards on the ground Sunday against Atlanta. That included a season-long 17-yard carry for the rookie.


Nov 6 2017 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano has made the coaching staff look good by winning the kicking job again and then making 19 of his 20 field-goal attempts so far.


Nov 6 2017 - Jonathan Stewart
  RB Jonathan Stewart is the leading rusher in franchise history, but Carolina fans weren't too pleased with him after two first-quarter fumbles in Atlanta territory. "It's tough because you know he was running hard," head coach Ron Rivera said. "We will go right back and hand it to Jonathan." Stewart was limited to 11 carries, accounting for only 21 rushing yards in the game.


Nov 6 2017 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess made five catches for 86 yards. He accounted for well more than half of the team's 137 receiving yards.


Nov 6 2017 - Brenton Bersin
  WR Brenton Bersin, who rejoined the team during the past week, was activated for the game. He played mostly on special teams.


Nov 6 2017 - Mario Addison
  DE Mario Addison added a sack against Atlanta, giving him 14.5 sacks in his last 16 games.


Nov 6 2017 - Chris Manhertz
  TE Chris Manhertz left the game against the Atlanta Falcons in the first half and was placed in the concussion protocol. He has been the backup tight end.


Nov 6 2017 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey had several notables against Atlanta, including his first rushing touchdown. The rookie also picked up a career-high 66 rushing yards, including a career-long carry of 17 yards.


Nov 6 2017 - Mike Adams
  S Mike Adams suffered what head coach Ron Rivera referred to Monday as a shoulder stinger and early indications are that it's not a serious ailment. Adams said after the game he will receive some treatment, but he was in no hurry for that, preferring to discuss his big second-quarter interception with reporters.


Nov 5 2017 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess, dubbed as the lead receiver for the Carolina Panthers, went off with encouraging results Sunday. Funchess led the Panthers with 86 receiving yards. "We're just trying to get clicking," said Funchess, a third-year pro out of Michigan. When the Panthers traded wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to the Buffalo Bills several days earlier, it left Funchess as the player with the most to gain as he suddenly became the team's top wideout. Funchess has a team-leading 443 receiving yards on 38 receptions (second in that category behind running back Christian McCaffrey's 54).


Nov 5 2017 - Brenton Bersin
  WR Brenton Bersin, who rejoined the Panthers during the week, was activated for the game.


Nov 5 2017 - Chris Manhertz
  TE Chris Manhertz was placed in the concussion protocol in the first half Sunday.


Nov 5 2017 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano has made 19 of 20 field-goal attempts this season, adding two successful boots Sunday.


Nov 5 2017 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton completed 13 of 24 passes for 137 yards Sunday. He was the game's leading rusher with 86 yards on nine carries.


Nov 3 2017 - Alex Armah
  FB Alex Armah has returned to regular practice participation after being hampered by a hamstring injury.


Nov 3 2017 - Trai Turner
  G Trai Turner has been limited in practice for the second week in a row after suffering a game-day knee injury. It appears he might be available for the game.


Nov 3 2017 - Brenton Bersin
  WR Brenton Bersin has rejoined the Panthers after the trade of WR Kelvin Benjamin. Bersin has been on and off the Carolina active roster for a few seasons.


Nov 1 2017 - Kaelin Clay
  WR Kaelin Clay was used as a punt returner in his first game since rejoining the organization. That alleviates some of the workload from RB Christian McCaffrey, who might be called upon for some returns, but not necessarily on a regular basis.


Nov 1 2017 - Luke Kuechly
  LB Luke Kuechly has two of the three interceptions for Carolina's defense this season. Since 2012, his 14 pickoffs lead all NFL linebackers.


Nov 1 2017 - Jonathan Stewart
  RB Jonathan Stewart, with a touchdown run last weekend, has tied for the second-most touchdowns in team history. His 53rd rushing touchdown matched former teammate RB DeAngelo Williams. They trail only Steven Smith (75), though QB Cam Newton has 51.
