 Latest Panthers Player Notes
Sep 19 2017 - Alex Armah
  FB Alex Armah was promoted to the active roster on Tuesday. Armah was selected from Division II West Georgia in the sixth round of the 2017 draft. The 6-foot-2, 253-pound Armah played tight end and defensive end after being recruited as a linebacker.


Sep 19 2017 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen (foot) was placed on injured reserve by the Carolina Panthers, The Pro Bowler sustained a broken foot during Sunday's 9-3 home-opening victory over the Buffalo Bills. The 32-year-old underwent surgery the following day and is eligible to return to the active roster after eight weeks, which would put him on schedule to play at the New York Jets on Nov. 26. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Olsen, who is in his 11th NFL season, has been selected to the Pro Bowl three consecutive years. Olsen, who had started 82 consecutive games, is the only tight end in NFL history with three consecutive seasons of 1,000 or more receiving yards. He had 80 catches for 1,073 yards last year and has 52 career touchdown receptions.


Sep 18 2017 - Julius Peppers
  DE Julius Peppers made quite a splash in his first game in Charlotte in a Carolina uniform since Jan. 3, 2010. He posted two sacks and added another tackle for a loss.


Sep 18 2017 - Ryan Kalil
  C Ryan Kalil was experiencing pain in his neck prior to the Buffalo game, so he didn't play against the Bills. He watched from the sideline in uniform. That led to Tyler Larsen taking the starting role.


Sep 18 2017 - Devin Funchess
  WR Devin Funchess racked up 68 receiving yards on four catches. That's the most yards for Funchess since the 2015 regular-season finale.


Sep 18 2017 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano is making the coaches look good for selecting him as the team's kicker. He has gone 3-for-3 on field goals in both games this season.


Sep 18 2017 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton was down on the turf for a while with a third-quarter ankle injury in the Buffalo game. But the Panthers punted on the next snap, so Newton never missed a down.


Sep 18 2017 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen of the Panthers underwent surgery on his broken right foot Monday morning and is expected to miss six to eight weeks. The Panthers will determine after the surgery whether Olsen will be placed on injured reserve with the expectation he would return later in the season, a team source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The 32-year-old Olsen was injured during the first half of Sunday's 9-3 home-opening victory over the Bills. He is the only tight end in NFL history with three consecutive seasons of 1,000 or more receiving yards. He had 80 catches for 1,073 yards last year and has 52 career touchdown receptions.


Sep 18 2017 - Harrison Butker
  K Harrison Butker was waived after losing the placekicking job to Graham Gano but he was then assigned to the practice squad when he cleared waivers.


Sep 18 2017 - Ryan Kalil
  C Ryan Kalil (sore neck) did not play and was replaced by Tyler Larsen.


Sep 18 2017 - Greg Olsen
  TE Greg Olsen suffered a broken foot in the first half Sunday.


Sep 18 2017 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin was the game's top receiver with 77 yards on six receptions Sunday.


Sep 18 2017 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton completed 20 of 32 passes for 228 yards against Buffalo. He was sacked six times. "Any time in this league that you can get a win, you take it and run with it," Newton said. Newton went down in the final minute of the third quarter when he was sacked for the sixth time. He eventually limped off the field, but did not miss any snaps once Carolina regained possession.


Sep 14 2017 - Cole Luke
  CB Cole Luke won't be playing again this week because of an ankle injury. He was placed on reserve/injured Thursday.


Sep 14 2017 - Harrison Butker
  K Harrison Butker, whose competition with K Graham Gano was considered extremely tight, was waived Wednesday. He's a rookie out of Georgia Tech.


Sep 14 2017 - LaDarius Gunter
  CB LaDarius Gunter was claimed off waivers from the Green Bay Packers. Given that he played in a Packers-high 859 snaps among defensive backs last season, he provides some immediate experience in the Carolina defensive backfield.


Sep 14 2017 - Thomas Davis
  LB Thomas Davis has missed practice time with a minor knee injury this week, but head coach Ron Rivera has said it's nothing serious. He was a full participant for Thursday's workout.


Sep 13 2017 - John Theus
  OT John Theus was waived by the 49ers on Wednesday. A fifth-round pick in 2016, Theus appeared in four games for the 49ers last season. He made the 49ers' 53-man active roster entering this season, but was inactive for the opener against Carolina.


Sep 13 2017 - Kevon Seymour
  CB Kevon Seymour has a quick reunion with his former team as he was acquired from the Bills following the final preseason games.


Sep 13 2017 - Jonathan Stewart
  RB Jonathan Stewart is within range of becoming the franchise's all-time leading rusher. He has gained 6,703 yards, trailing only DeAngelo Williams' 6,846 yards from 2006-14.


Sep 13 2017 - John Theus
  OL John Theus was waived by the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday. The 6-6, 303-pound Theus was the second of three fifth-round picks by San Francisco in 2016. He appeared in four games (one start) as a rookie last season and was inactive for last week's game against Carolina.


Sep 11 2017 - Vernon Butler
  DT Vernon Butler has made considerable progress since suffering an ankle injury in the first preseason game, but he was among the inactive players for the opener.


Sep 11 2017 - Star Lotulelei
  DT Star Lotulelei recovered a fumble for the second time in his career, against the 49ers. Perhaps as important, he was praised by head coach Ron Rivera for his ability to be a space eater up front.


Sep 11 2017 - Luke Kuechly
  LB Luke Kuechly's interception in the opener was the 13th pickoff of his career. But he only had one in an injury-riddled 2016 season when he played in 10 games.


Sep 11 2017 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano emerged from training camp barely keeping his first-string role, but he showed he might have deserved it by going 3 for 3 on field goals and booting his kickoffs through the end zone.


Sep 11 2017 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 47 yards with a fumble on 13 carries and caught five passes for 38 yards in his NFL debut in Sunday's win over the 49ers. "I didn't play as well as I would've liked, but anytime you can get a win we're happy," McCaffrey said.


Sep 11 2017 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton completed 14 of 25 passes for 171 yards, two touchdown passes and one interception in Sunday's win over the 49ers. "The quarterback obviously is still working on his timing," Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said of Newton. "He missed a couple, and he knows it. He's upset with himself. Had to talk him off a ledge. He's focusing on what he needs to get done. The nice thing is all the other guys are rallying around him. They understand he's a little rusty."


Sep 8 2017 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton is listed as questionable for the regular-season opener Sunday but Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he expects Newton to startt against the 49ers. Newton, who had surgery on March 30 to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, was limited in training camp. He played only one series -- a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive when he completed both of his passes for 21 yards and a TD -- during Carolina's four preseason games.


Sep 6 2017 - Alex Armah
  FB Alex Armah was put on waivers, but he cleared waivers and was placed on Carolina's practice squad earlier in the week.


Sep 6 2017 - Cole Luke
  CB Cole Luke, an undrafted rookie out of Notre Dame, made the roster but he has missed practice time leading to the first game because of an ankle injury and would be a candidate to be on the game-day inactive list.


Sep 6 2017 - Kevon Seymour
  CB Kevon Seymour, who was acquired in a weekend trade with the Buffalo Bills, is listed as a second-stringer on the depth chart.


Sep 6 2017 - Christian McCaffrey
  RB Christian McCaffrey's first NFL game will involve a matchup with 49ers DE Solomon Thomas, a former roommate at Stanford. Both players were first-round draft picks.


Sep 6 2017 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel said he has no worries about playing in the team's first game after twisting an ankle in the last preseason game. He missed earlier training camp sessions with a hamstring injury.


Sep 4 2017 - Demetrious Cox
  S Demetrious Cox was claimed off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals during the weekend. He had been an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State.


Sep 4 2017 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano has the edge as being the kicker on the active roster for the opener if the Panthers go into the weekend with him and rookie Harrison Butker on the roster. Gano is in his eighth season.


Sep 4 2017 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel vows he'll be ready for the Sept. 10 opener at San Francisco after an injury-riddled preseason. He went out of the last preseason game with an ankle injury.


Sep 4 2017 - Cam Newton
  QB Cam Newton is "ready" for the Sunday's season opener, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. Newton, who had surgery on March 30 to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, was limited in training camp. He played only one series -- a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive when he completed both of his passes for 21 yards and a TD -- during the four preseason games. "I think he's ready,'' Rivera said. "You wish he'd had a few more snaps and played a little bit earlier in the preseason so we'd have more to go on. But what we saw, we liked. We liked how everything seems to be meshing together as an offense. We'll see how it goes as we continue to work this week.'' Newton, 28, has been a full participant in practice over the past week as the Panthers prepare for the opener at San Francisco.


Sep 3 2017 - Corn Elder
  CB Corn Elder was placed on reserve/injured Sunday. He was expected to be considered for contributions on special teams, particularly as a return specialist, so it could be a blow in several areas.


Sep 3 2017 - Alex Armah
  FB Alex Armah was waived by the Panthers, leaving the team without a true fullback pending an additional move.


Sep 3 2017 - *Brad Kaaya
  QB Brad Kaaya, a rookie out of Miami, was claimed on waivers Sunday from the Detroit Lions. The Carolina quarterbacks coach is Ken Dorsey, also a former Miami quarterback. Kaaya figures to be the team's third quarterback.


Sep 2 2017 - Kevon Seymour
  CB Kevon Seymour was acquired by the Carolina Panthers for wide receiver Kaelin Clay and a 2019 seventh-round draft choice, Seymour, 6 feet and 185 pounds, was a sixth-round draft choice of the Bills in 2016 out of Southern Cal. In his rookie season, Seymour had 14 tackles and three pass breakups in 15 games with three starts. He added eight tackles on special teams.


Sep 1 2017 - Kevon Seymour
  CB Kevon Seymour had a solid final game, as he was in on five tackles playing both outside and in the slot.


Sep 1 2017 - Daeshon Hall
  DE Daeshon Hall, a rookie out of Texas A&M, was out for the last couple of weeks of training camp because of an injury and that's bound to hurt his chances of making the roster.


Sep 1 2017 - David Mayo
  LB David Mayo, the leading tackler on the team through three preseason games, made an interception in the fourth game. He's pegged to be the top backup at linebacker.


Sep 1 2017 - Teddy Williams
  CB Teddy Williams left in the first half of Thursday's preseason game because a shoulder injury and was placed on IR on Friday . He has been listed as a third-stringer on the depth chart.


Sep 1 2017 - Damiere Byrd
  WR Damiere Byrd caught his third touchdown pass of the preseason in the Pittsburgh game. His other two also came at home in the first preseason outing against the Houston Texans.


Sep 1 2017 - Graham Gano
  K Graham Gano, who has been in a tight competition with rookie K Harrison Butker, missed his only field-goal attempt in the preseason finale when his 51-yarder bounced off the right upright.


Sep 1 2017 - Curtis Samuel
  WR Curtis Samuel left the last preseason game because of ankle an injury sustained in the third quarter. The rookie missed time during the first few weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury.


Sep 1 2017 - LaDarius Gunter
  CB LaDarius Gunter was a No. 1 corner at the end of the 2016 season. But that was largely due to injury, as Gunter's 4.7 speed in the 40-yard dash has always been an enormous liability. Green Bay upgraded its cornerback position this offseason, and had third-year players Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins return to health. And when Gunter struggled early in camp, he looked in danger of missing the 53-man roster. But Gunter began playing far more in the slot as camp progressed, and seemed to find a home there. Gunter is aggressive and physical, and seemed to work better in tighter spaces. Gunter intercepted Rams quarterback Dan Orlovsky Thursday and seems like a good bet to survive Saturday's roster cuts. "I like LaDarius in there," Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt said of Gunter. "He has the skill-set to play in there. He's an instinctive guy. He has some size to him. He's one of those guys that can play inside."


Aug 29 2017 - Vernon Butler
  DE Vernon Butler, who went down in the first preseason game with a knee sprain, returned to the practice field but isn't taking part in regular drills.
