 Latest Panthers Player Notes
Oct 17 2018 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey made 10 receptions in a home game last year against Philadelphia. At the time, it set a team record for catches in a game by a running back. He has since broken that mark.


Oct 17 2018 - Kyle Love
  DT Kyle Love has been dealing with a shoulder ailment since the Washington game, but it's not anything that should necessarily keep him out of games right away. However, he was held out of Wednesday's practice, so his status is being evaluated throughout the week.


Oct 17 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen reported no problems in the aftermath of his first game back from a foot injury. Head coach Ron Rivera said he sees no reason for restrictions on his snaps in games, but it will be normal for some of his practice time to be limited.


Oct 15 2018 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey caught seven passes for 46 yards on Sunday. He has a team-leading 34 receptions and 238 receiving yards for the season.


Oct 15 2018 - Kyle Love
  Defensive tackle Kyle Love sustained a shoulder injury in Sunday's game. It is unclear whether that will affect his status for the next game.


Oct 15 2018 - Donte Jackson
  CB Donte Jackson suffered a shoulder injury against the Redskins. Whether it will affect his status for the next game is uncertain.


Oct 15 2018 - Thomas Davis
  LB Thomas Davis played his first game Sunday after being suspended for the first four games by the NFL. He finished with six total tackles and two passes defensed. "I thought he handled the man situations very well," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He was running with some pretty doggone fast players and that's T.D. He's an explosive guy that can move."


Oct 15 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen returned on Sunday after missing three games with a broken foot. He caught four passes for 48 yards against the Redskins, and head coach Ron Rivera thought he was in good shape physically the next day. "Greg looked like he responded well to having played as much as he did," Rivera said. "He played a little bit more than I thought he ws going to. He looked a little tentative initially in the game, but you saw at the end of the game, he started getting heated up and playing really well."


Oct 15 2018 - D.J. Moore
  WR DJ Moore endured a day he'd like to forget on Sunday, committing two fumbles that led to 10 first-half points in a 23-17 setback to the Washington Redskins. Moore, who was selected with the 24th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, lost the ball on a punt return and again on a catch that led to a field goal. "Just have to be aware," the 21-year-old Moore said, "and hold onto the ball tighter."


Oct 14 2018 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess hauled in a 23-yard touchdown pass from Cam Newton, his 19th career touchdown, tying him with Ted Ginn, Jr., for fifth-most in franchise history. .


Oct 14 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton finished 27 of 40 for 275 yards in a 23-16 loss to Washington on Sunday. He threw two touchdowns and one interception.


Oct 14 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen is listed as active for Sunday's game at the Washington Redskins, the team announced. The Panthers officially listed Olsen as questionable for Sunday's game, which marks the three-time Pro Bowl selection's return to game action after sustaining a fractured right foot in a season-opening 16-8 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Olsen missed nine games last season with a similar injury to the same foot. However, the screw that was placed in his foot to help the injury heal prevented this break from being as problematic.


Oct 13 2018 - Thomas Davis
  LB Thomas Davis had his roster exemption lifted by the Panthers Friday (Oct. 12). He had been reinstated from reserve/suspended Monday.


Oct 13 2018 - Jared Norris
  LB Jared Norris (toe) was placed on reserve/injured by the Panthers Friday (Oct. 12). He is eligible to be designated for return and begin practicing after missing at least six weeks and can play after eight weeks.


Oct 12 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen is expected to be back in the lineup for Sunday's game at the Washington Redskins. The Panthers officially listed Olsen as questionable for Sunday's game, but coach Ron Rivera expressed confidence that the veteran tight end will be on the field against the Redskins. Rivera told the Charlotte Observer on Friday that Olsen would have been listed as probable if the league still used such an injury designation. Olsen practiced fully Thursday for the first time since he suffered a fractured right foot in a season-opening 16-8 win over the Dallas Cowboys.


Oct 11 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen could be back in the lineup for Sunday's game at the Washington Redskins. Olsen practiced fully Thursday for the first time since he suffered a fractured right foot in a season-opening 16-8 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner told ESPN that Olsen was on target to rejoin the lineup after practicing in soggy conditions Thursday.


Oct 11 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen could be back in the lineup for Sunday's game at the Washington Redskins. Olsen practiced fully Thursday for the first time since he suffered a fractured right foot in a season-opening 16-8 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner told ESPN that Olsen was on target to rejoin the lineup after practicing in soggy conditions Thursday. "If I can practice in this (rain), when the game (day) is here I should be great," said Olsen.


Oct 10 2018 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess had no lingering problems from what forced him out of Sunday's game at times. He was experiencing cramping during that game.


Oct 10 2018 - Tyler Larsen
  C Tyler Larsen was summoned to center for a key fourth-down play when C Ryan Kalil exited last week.


Oct 10 2018 - Ryan Kalil
  C Ryan Kalil exited with a shoulder injury in the game against the New York Giants. But by Wednesday, he was a regular participant in practice and shouldn't miss game time.


Oct 10 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen reported that he felt fine after a full workout in Wednesday's practice. That leads to indications that he should be ready to be full go for Sunday's game at Washington coming off a broken bone in his foot sustained in the Sept. 9 season opener.


Oct 10 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton owns the NFL record for rushing yards by a quarterback for a single franchise. He reached 4,485 career rushing yards during the Giants game, passing former Philadelphia quarterback Randall Cunningham (who had 4,482).


Oct 10 2018 - Tyler Larsen
  C Tyler Larsen was summoned to center for a key fourth-down play when C Ryan Kalil exited with a shoulder injury in the game against the Giants.


Oct 10 2018 - Colin Jones
  S Colin Jones scored his first career touchdown when he recovered a muffed punt by the New York Giants in the end zone. Jones is an eight-year NFL veteran and has mostly been a backup safety. But he has regular roles on special teams so perhaps it was appropriate that the TD came in that role.


Oct 10 2018 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano received NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors after capping a four field-goal performance with a 63-yard attempt in the waning moments of a 33-31 victory over the New York Giants.


Oct 10 2018 - Julius Peppers
  DE Julius Peppers spent his off day assessing the damage of Hurricane Florence with his own eyes. Peppers, who started a fund for Hurricane Florence relief with $100,000 of his own money, spent Tuesday helping with the recovery efforts in Lumberton, N.C -- about a two-hour drive from his hometown in Bailey. "My home isn't too far away from that area, and that made it real to me," the 38-year-old Peppers said, via the Charlotte Observer. "It made it real to me to actually come down here and see some of the damage, some of the people who were affected by this disaster."


Oct 9 2018 - Brandon Chubb
  LB Brandon Chubb was signed by the Panthers to their practice squad Tuesday (Oct. 9). He had been waived by the Colts Sept. 1.


Oct 8 2018 - Thomas Davis
  LB Thomas Davis was reinstated (Panthers)) from reserve/suspended by the NFL Monday (Oct. 8). He received a roster exemption that expires Oct. 15.


Oct 8 2018 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey has just seven receptions in his last two games after reeling in 14 for 102 yards in the Panthers' 31-24 setback to the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 16.


Oct 8 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton gained 29 yards on the ground during Sunday's 33-31 win over the New York Giants. Newton has 4,485 career rushing yards, the most by a quarterback with a single franchise (Randall Cunningham, 4,482 with Philadelphia).


Oct 8 2018 - Colin Jones
  S Colin Jones scored his first career touchdown on a fumble recovery in the end zone of a botched punt during Sunday's 33-31 win over the New York Giants.


Oct 8 2018 - Mike Adams
  S Mike Adams recorded his fifth multi-interception performance of his career in Sunday's 33-31 win over the New York Giants. Adams has 29 interceptions and 16 fumble recoveries during his career.


Oct 8 2018 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano, who drilled a 63-yard attempt to seal Sunday's 33-31 win over the New York Giants, has made 36 consecutive field goals at home.


Oct 8 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton was 21-of-35 for 237 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-31 win over the Giants. Newton also ran for 29 yards, giving him 4,485 rushing yards. It is the most by a quarterback with a single team, surpassing the 4,482 Randall Cunningham had with Philadelphia.


Oct 8 2018 - Mike Adams
  S Mike Adams intercepted two passes in Sunday's win over the Giants. It was his fifth career game with at least two interceptions. Since 2014, his 16 interceptions are tied for the third-most in the NFL.


Oct 7 2018 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano kicked three field goals, including a game-winning 63-yarder in Sunday's 33-31 win over the Giants. It was Gano's sixth career-winning game field goal and set a team record for distance. It also was the second-longest field goal in NFL history. Gano has made his last 36 field goals at home dating back to Oct. 10, 2016.


Oct 7 2018 - Eric Reid
  S Eric Reid took a knee during the playing of the national anthem prior to Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Reid, who signed a one-year contract with the Panthers last week, claimed at the beginning of the offseason that he wasn't receiving interest from teams due to his decision to kneel during the national anthem. He was the first player to kneel alongside former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a means to protest racial inequality and police brutality. No Panthers player joined Reid in the demonstration on Sunday. In fact, no Panthers player had ever kneeled, although defensive end Julius Peppers stayed in the locker room the week after comments by President Donald Trump last year.


Oct 5 2018 - Eric Reid
  S Eric Reid will start at safety against the New York Giants on Sunday, head coach Ron Riviera said on Friday. Reid was out for football for nine months after being the subject of controversy when he knelt in protest alongside his teammate and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. "We're going to keep an eye on him," Rivera said. "We'll see how he does the first couple series, try and gauge that, and go from there. We really don't want to overuse him. We want to be smart about it. We want this for the long haul, for hopefully all of the games that we play this year." Reid, who signed a one-year deal with Carolina last week, practiced with the first-team defense throughout this week and seemed to pick things up quickly. However, conditioning could be an issue since he hasn't played since last season.


Oct 4 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen participated in practice on a limited basis Thursday, the first time he has practiced since suffering a fractured foot in the season-opening game. The Panthers have already ruled him out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants, but Olsen said there is a chance he could play the following week. "I don't think it's out of the question," Olsen told ESPN.com. "If everyone, the doctors and I, feel like I'm ready I'm going to play. If I can play, I'm always going to err on the side of playing. But I want to be able to play and help the team."


Oct 3 2018 - Michael Palardy
  P Michael Palardy has been so solid that he was granted a three-year contract extension. He would have been a free agent at the end of the season. This season, Palardy has a net average of 42.7 yards per attempt, a rate that's on track to break his franchise record from last season.


Oct 3 2018 - Efe Obada
  DE Efe Obada has gained quite a bit of attention for his background since the last game, when he recorded an interception, a sack, a deflected pass and two quarterback hurries in just 19 snaps of his NFL debut against the Cincinnati Bengals. That landed him the NFC Defensive Player of the Week honor. Obada became the first player from the NFL International Pathway Program to make an active roster.


Oct 3 2018 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey ranks second in the NFL with 90.3 rushing yards per game. Plus, with 428 yards from scrimmage, it's the second-most in franchise history through the first three games of a season.


Oct 3 2018 - Michael Palardy
  P Michael Palardy signed a three-year contract extension with the Panthers through the 2021 season. Without the extension, Palardy would have become a restricted free agent following the 2018 season. Palardy set a franchise record in 2017 with his 42.4-yard net punting average to go along with his 46.0 gross punting average. Palardy tied for third in the NFL for fewest touchbacks (4) among qualified punters, while landing 25 punts inside the 20. This season, Palardy has raised his net average to 42.7, while eight of his 14 punts have pinned opponents inside the 20-yard line with only one touchback. Palardy was an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2014, signing with seven different teams before becoming the Panthers punter in the 2016 season and earning his first NFL game action in place of an injured Andy Lee. Palardy won the Panthers punter job in training camp in 2017 prior to his franchise-best season.


Oct 1 2018 - Lorenzo Doss
  CB Lorenzo Doss was signed by the Panthers to their practice squad Monday (Oct. 1). He had been waived by the Panthers Thursday.


Sep 29 2018 - Eric Reid
  S Eric Reid could be ready to take the field in Week 5 according to the Panthers' Greg Olsen during an interview with Pro Football Talk Live on Friday. "I think it happened at a good time bringing him in during the bye week," Olsen said. "Kind of get a head start on prepping to hopefully be able to contribute really quickly, as maybe as early as next week. So, we'll see how practice goes when we start back up on Monday but I'm sure he's happy to be back in the league and kind of have that behind him and we're happy to have him." The Panthers signed Reid to a one-year contract Thursday. Carolina needed help in the secondary after veteran Da'Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve last week with his second concussion in a month.


Sep 27 2018 - Lorenzo Doss
  CB Lorenzo Doss was placed on waivers by the Panthers Thursday (Sept. 27).


Sep 27 2018 - Eric Reid
  S Eric Reid has found a home within the NFL once again. The Carolina Panthers signed Reid to a one-year contract, the team announced Thursday. Financial terms were not disclosed by the Panthers for Reid, who followed in the footsteps of former San Francisco 49ers teammate Colin Kaepernick this past offseason in filing a collusion grievance against the NFL. Reid claimed at the beginning of the offseason that he wasn't receiving interest from teams due to his decision to kneel during the national anthem. He was the first player to kneel alongside Kaepernick as a means to protest racial inequality and police brutality.


Sep 26 2018 - Efe Obada
  DE Efe Obada received NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors after the Nigerian-born player collected a sack and an interception in his NFL debut -- a 31-21 triumph over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.


Sep 25 2018 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen is optimistic that his return from a fractured right foot will be quicker this season than in 2017. "Yeah, I'm way ahead of the curve," the three-time Pro Bowl selection said Monday night, per ESPN. "Last year at two weeks I was laying in my bed in a cast. I couldn't do anything. I'm way ahead of the curve from that standpoint. It's just a matter of seeing each week how your foot responds and just try to add a little more, a little more. What that time frame is, we're optimistic. Hopefully, it's sooner rather than later."


Sep 24 2018 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess was Carolina's leading receiver Sunday with 67 yards on four catches. He also recorded his first TD by getting a four-yard score.
