Top Panthers News

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Available for Week 4

    Luvu (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Luvu was limited by a shoulder injury during Thursday's practice session, but he was a full participant Friday and will be available for Week 4. The 26-year-old has totaled 21 tackles (19 solo), a forced fumble and a pass defense over the first three weeks of the season.

  • Panthers' Marquis Haynes: Questionable Sunday

    Haynes (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Haynes didn't practice Thursday due to a hamstring injury, but he returned to the field in a limited capacity Friday. If he's unavailable Sunday, it's possible that Amare Barno and Henry Anderson see increased roles.

  • Panthers' Xavier Woods: Available against Arizona

    Woods (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Arizona.

    Woods was limited at practice all week due to a hamstring injury, but he'll be able to play through the issue in Week 4. Over the first three games of the season, he's logged 23 tackles (nine solo) and a pass defense.

  • Panthers' Stantley Thomas-Oliver: Questionable for Week 4

    Thomas-Oliver (Achilles) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Thomas-Oliver played through an Achilles injury during last week's game against the Saints but was limited in each of Carolina's three practice sessions this week. Even if he's available for Week 4, he's unlikely to play a significant role in the Panthers' secondary.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Set to play Sunday

    Thomas (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against Arizona.

    Thomas was limited in practice all week due to an ankle injury, but the issue won't prevent him from suiting up in Week 4. Over the first three games of the season, he's secured five of nine targets for 79 yards.

  • Panthers' Laviska Shenault: Officially questionable for Week 4

    Shenault (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Shenault returned to limited practice activity Friday after having missed Thursday's session, but his status will still need to be monitored as Sunday's 4:05 p.m. E.T. kickoff grows closer. He flashed big-play ability Week 3 while securing both of his targets for 90 yards and a score, so Shenault may have made a convincing enough case to see more than 19 percent of offensive snaps as long as he's cleared to play. Per Joe Person of The Athletic, coach Matt Rhule said Shenault is "probably" a game-time decision.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Officially questionable

    McCaffrey (thigh) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    McCaffrey upgraded to limited practice activity after starting the week with back-to-back absences, and it looks like he has at least a chance to play versus Arizona. However, the Panthers may monitor McCaffrey's status until the last minute, so his status could come down to a game-time decision Sunday. The team has Chuba Hubbard and D'Onta Foreman on hand in case McCaffrey's touches need to be limited, or he ends up needing to miss time. Per Steve Reed of the Associated Press, coach Matt Rhule said he's "very hopeful" McCaffrey will be available.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Present at Friday's practice

    McCaffrey (thigh) is participating in the start of Friday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    McCaffrey is coming off back-to-back missed sessions, but he's managed to shed the red jersey and replace it with a white uniform Friday. If the star running back is able to upgrade to at least 'limited' activity on Carolina's injury report, it will signify a step in the right direction for his chances of suiting up versus Arizona on Sunday. In any case, the Panthers will disclose an official game-day injury designation for McCaffrey on Friday.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Limited again

    Thomas (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday.

    Thomas played his typical percentage of snaps Sunday against the Saints, but he apparently picked up an injury along the way, which has left him limited for the Panthers' last two practices. If Thomas is unable to go Sunday against the Cardinals, Tommy Tremble will step into the starting role.

  • Panthers' Laviska Shenault: Decreases practice activity

    Shenault (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

    Shenault wasn't known to be dealing with an injury coming out of Sunday's win over the Saints, so his limited participation in Wednesday's session followed by no participation a day later could hint that the wideout may have tweaked his hamstring at some point during the Panthers' first practice of the week. Whatever the case, the timing of the injury is less than ideal for Shenault, who had built a strong case to supplant Shi Smith as the Panthers' No. 3 receiver after a solid 2022 debut in Week 3. After he was a healthy inactive for the first two weeks of the season, Shenault played 11 snaps on offense against the Saints and hauled in both of his targets on the day for 90 yards and a touchdown. His availability for this weekend's game against the Cardinals now looks to be in question.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Sits out another practice

    McCaffrey (thigh) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice report, Ellis L. Williams of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The thigh injury kept McCaffrey off the practice field for the second day in a row, but head coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday that he wasn't concerned about the star tailback's availability for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. It's unclear if Rhule's stance has changed on the heels of another absence from practice, but more resolution on McCaffrey's status should come Friday, when Carolina holds its final Week 4 practice. If the thigh injury sidelines McCaffrey this weekend or results in him being limited, Chuba Hubbard and D'Onta Foreman would take on expanded roles out of the Panthers backfield.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Not spotted Thursday

    McCaffrey (thigh) wasn't present at the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    McCaffrey officially was a non-participant Wednesday due to a thigh concern, which appears as if it'll force a second straight absence to begin Week 4 prep. Coach Matt Rhule told Newton on Wednesday that the Panthers aren't concerned about McCaffrey's health, but his status still should be watched to ensure he'll be available Sunday against the Cardinals.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Not listed on injury report

    Jackson isn't listed on the Panthers' injury report Wednesday.

    Jackson saw a season-low 26 snaps in Week 3 due to a neck injury, but it didn't knock him out of the game completely. Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said Monday that Jackson would be fine, but it's reassuring to see him not listed on the injury report ahead of Week 4.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Limited Wednesday

    Thomas (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Thomas has handled 60-plus percent of offensive snaps in all three of Carolina's games this season, but he's yet to log more than two catches in a contest. He has two more chances to upgrade his activity level ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
