Dec 26 2018 - Tyler Larsen
  OL Tyler Larsen filled in for Trai Turner at left guard in the Atlanta game.


Dec 26 2018 - Trai Turner

Dec 26 2018 - Julius Peppers
  DE Julius Peppers has shied away from discussing his future with retirement a possibility. "We still have a game left to play," Peppers said. I'll save that answer (about my future) for a later date." Yet Peppers, 38, kept some of the mystery out there. "It's always disappointing whenever you don't make the playoffs," he said. "But there's always next year." In the home finale, he recovered a fumble, giving him 21 career fumble recoveries (and 10 as a member of the Panthers).


Dec 26 2018 - Ryan Kalil
  C Ryan Kalil exited after the final home game and acknowledged that he indeed will follow through on plans to retire at season's end. That means he has one game remaining in a career that spanned 12 seasons. "A lot of good memories here, with a lot of great guys," Kalil said. "Lot of great coaches. ... Very blessed to be able to play as long as I did, and can't really find the words to describe it." Kalil has been considered among the team leaders for several seasons. He said he's glad he decided when it was time to call it a career and didn't have that decision made for him. He'll try to make the most of the career finale at New Orleans. "I think the best thing that I can do is approach it like I would any other week," he said. "That's the way I'll get the most of it."


Dec 26 2018 - Taylor Heinicke
  QB Taylor Heinicke of the Panthers was played on the Injured Reserve List because of a left elbow injury. Heinicke sustained the injury last week in his starting debut as a pro against the Atlanta Falcons after the Panthers shut down startin


Dec 26 2018 - Kyle Allen
  QB Kyle Allen, an undrafted rookie, will start at quarterback in the season finale against the New Orleans Saints after the Panthers placed Taylor Heinicke on the Injured Reserve List earlier in the day. Allen completed all four passes he threw for 38 yards after coming in when Heinicke was injured. Allen started three games for the University of Houston last season and played in 20 games at Texas A&M before transferring to Houston in January 2016.


Dec 24 2018 - Jarius Wright
  WR Jarius Wright had season highs in both receptions (seven) and receiving yards (69) in Sunday loss to Atlanta.


Dec 24 2018 - Taylor Heinicke
  QB Taylor Heinicke was 33 of 53 for 274 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions on Sunday in his first career start. He had to leave the game with an elbow injury.


Dec 24 2018 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey ran for 101 yards and caught 12 passes for 77 more on Sunday. McCaffrey has 106 receptions this season, breaking the NFL record for receptions by a running back (102 for Matt Forte in 2014). He also broke Carolina's single-season franchise record for most receptions by a Panthers player regardless of position (Steve Smith had 103 in 2005). Finally, McCaffrey became the third player in NFL history to record at least 100 receptions and 1,000 rushing yards in a single season (joining LaDainian Tomlinson and Matt Forte).


Dec 24 2018 - Kyle Allen
  QB Kyle Allen, an undrafted rookie out of Houston who had been promoted from the Panthers' practice squad last week, got in Sunday's game and completed all four of his passes for 38 yards, including a 24-yard pass to Jarius Wright.


Dec 23 2018 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 101 yards Sunday and caught 12 passes for 77 yards. McCaffrey has 106 receptions. He became the third running back in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards and catch 100 passes.


Dec 21 2018 - Eric Reid
  S Eric Reid said in a Twitter post on Friday that he was fined $20,054 by the NFL for a hit on New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, who was on his way out of bounds. Reid posted video of the play from Monday night's loss to the Saints that shows Thomas being tackled by Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly on the sideline. Reid came in at the end of the play and made contact with Thomas once he reached the sideline. No flag was thrown on the play by game officials and Reid has implied that he is being singled out by the league. "It's blatant at this point," Reid said after he was fined earlier this season for a hit on Adam Humphries of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I think everybody can see it. That's a play that wasn't flagged on the field. I hit him in the chest."


Dec 20 2018 - *Elijah Qualls

Dec 19 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton is expected to be shut down for the remainder of the season, multiple media outlets reported on Wednesday. The expected move comes one day after coach Ron Rivera told reporters that he had a "slim glimmer" of hope for the playoffs. Newton is nursing an ailing right shoulder for the Panthers (6-8), who have lost six straight contests and are all but eliminated from playoff contention. They host the Atlanta Falcons (5-9) on Sunday (1 p.m. ET) and reside 1 1/2 games behind the Minnesota Vikings (7-6-1) and one game in back of the Philadelphia Eagles (7-7) and Washington Redskins (7-7) for the second wild-card spot in the NFC.


Dec 19 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton will not be shut down for the final two games of the season, said head coach Ron Rivera. Newton is nursing an ailing right shoulder for the Panthers (6-8), who have lost six straight contests and are all but eliminated from playoff contention. They host the Atlanta Falcons (5-9) on Sunday (1 p.m. ET) and reside 1 1/2 games behind the Minnesota Vikings (7-6-1) and one game in back of the Philadelphia Eagles (7-7) and Washington Redskins (7-7) for the second wild-card spot in the NFC. "We'll wait till we have those conversations and see where we are," Rivera said. "Until I get a chance to visit with (Cam), I am not going to speculate." Newton noted on Monday night that there's a chance the Panthers shut him down for the final two weeks of the season.


Dec 18 2018 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey set the franchise's single-season record for yards from scrimmage during the first quarter of Monday's 12-9 setback to the New Orleans Saints. McCaffrey rushed for a 9-yard run to break the record established by DeAngelo Williams, who accumulated 1,636 yards in 2008. Williams had 1,515 rushing yards and 121 receiving yards that season. The 22-year-old McCaffrey finished the game with 120 yards from scrimmage (53 rushing, 67 receiving) to boost his season total to 1,747 (979 rushing, 768 receiving). He has already set franchise records for receptions (94), receiving yards and receiving touchdowns (six) by a running back.


Dec 13 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton should be able to make it through the season even with his sore shoulder, head coach Ron Rivera said. Newton has previously shrugged off suggestions that he might have to come out of the lineup. Newton went above the 3,000-yard passing mark for the season on his first completion in the Cleveland game. He joined Peyton Manning as the only players in NFL history to pass for at least 3,000 yards in each of his first eight seasons in the league.


Dec 13 2018 - Thomas Davis
  LB Thomas Davis recovered two fumbles in the Cleveland game for his first two takeaways of the season. Those recoveries gave Davis 11 fumble recoveries in his career. That ties the franchise record set by former defensive back Mike Minter.


Dec 13 2018 - Chris Clark
  T Chris Clark didn't practice Thursday because of a knee injury. The ailment apparently stems from gradual wear and tear and not a specific play.


Dec 13 2018 - Chandler Catanzaro
  K Chandler Catanzaro joined the team prior to the game at Cleveland after kicking earlier in the season for Tampa Bay. He was 2-for-2 on field goals and 2-for-2 on extra-point attempts in his Carolina debut. K Graham Gano, who has an ailing left knee, didn't return to active participation in workouts by Thursday so Catanzaro likely gets the call for the game vs. New Orleans.


Dec 10 2018 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess played only 39 percent of the snaps, his fewest since the end of the 2016 season.


Dec 10 2018 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel played a career-high 93 percent of the snaps. He tallied 80 receiving yards on four catches and has averaged 84.0 receiving yards over the last two weeks.


Dec 10 2018 - Luke Kuechly
  LB Luke Kuechly led the Panthers with 11 tackles and he forced two fumbles, both recovered by fellow LB Thomas Davis.


Dec 10 2018 - Ian Thomas
  TE Ian Thomas got his first start since Week 5 (after Greg Olsen was lost for the rest of the year in Week 13) and he caught a career-best nine passes for 77 yards.


Dec 10 2018 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton finished 26-of-42 for 265 yards and one interception against Cleveland. He wasn't responsible for a touchdown for the first time since Week 1.


Dec 7 2018 - Amini Silatolu
  G Amini Silatolu (knee) was placed on reserve/injured by the Panthers Friday (Dec. 7). While he would normally eligible to be designated for return and begin practicing after missing at least six weeks and playing in eight weeks, the first game he would be available would be the Super Bowl.


Dec 7 2018 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano was ruled out of Sunday's game at Cleveland. Gano was limited in Thursday's practice due to a left knee injury. Carolina signed K Chandler Catanzaro on Friday. Gano has converted 14 of 16 field goal attempts this season but both his misses were costly.


Dec 7 2018 - Chandler Catanzaro
  K Chandler Catanzaro, the team announced Friday. Catanzaro was brought in one day after Panthers kicker Graham Gano was limited in Thursday's practice due to a left knee injury. Catanzaro opened the season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but was released on Nov. 13, two days after missing a pair of field goals in a 16-3 loss to Washington. The Buccaneers signed Catanzaro to a three-year contract in March after he converted 25 of 30 field goal attempts for the New York Jets in 2017.


Dec 6 2018 - Brendan Mahon
  G Brendan Mahon (concussion) was placed on reserve/injured by the Panthers Thursday (Dec. 6). While he would normally eligible to be designated for return and begin practicing after missing at least six weeks and playing in eight weeks, the first game he would be available would be the Super Bowl.


Dec 6 2018 - Ian Silberman
  G Ian Silberman was signed by the Panthers to their practice squad Thursday (Dec. 6). He had been waived by the Raiders Monday.


Dec 6 2018 - Taylor Hearn
  G Taylor Hearn was signed by the Panthers from their practice squad Thursday (Dec. 6).


Dec 5 2018 - Kai Nacua

Dec 5 2018 - DeAndrew White
  WR DeAndrew White was signed by the Panthers to the practice squad Wednesday (Dec. 5). He had been released by the Panthers from the practice squad Oct. 1
