  • Panthers' Andrew Gachkar: Signs with Panthers

    Gachkar signed with the Panthers on Tuesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    With Luke Kuechly in concussion protocol, Gachkar will add some depth to the Panthers' linebacking unit. He's expected primarily to fill a role on special teams while David Mayo takes on more snaps in Kuechly's absence.

    Gachkar signed a contract with the Jaguars on Sunday, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

  • Cowboys' Andrew Gachkar: Active for Sunday's game

    Gachkar (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

    Gachkar was a full participant in practice all week, so his questionable status heading into Sunday's game was likely precautionary. Look for him to take up his regular position as the starting strong-side linebacker in the Cowboy's defense.

  • Cowboys' Andrew Gachkar: Returns to practice Sunday

    Gachkar (thumb) returned to practice Sunday, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    His hand is still in a cast to protect the healing digit, but Gachkar will at least have a couple of weeks to get his game legs under him. The thumb injury likely cost him any chance of winning the starting middle linebacker spot that opened up due to Rolando McClain's latest suspension, but Gachkar could still be ready for Week 1 and see significant snaps during the season.

  • Cowboys' Andrew Gachkar: Will undergo thumb surgery

    Gachkar will undergo surgery on his thumb Friday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

  • Cowboys' Andrew Gachkar: Will compete for starting middle linebacker spot

    Gachkar is in the mix to start at middle linebacker while Rolando McClain serves his 10-game suspension, Dallas Morning News reports.

    Anthony Hitchens, who started nine games last season, is the favorite to win the job and ultra-athletic second-year LB Mark Nzeocha could also factor in with a big camp, but Gachkar received most of the first-team reps at middle linebacker in OTAs and minicamp. The veteran was primarily used on special teams last year, but at the very least should see an increase in defensive snaps in 2016.
