Kuechly (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. Kuechly is slated to miss a second straight contest due to the concussion he suffered in Week 11's Thursday night game versus the Saints. With him sidelined once again, A.J. Klein figures to keep his temporary starting middle linebacker job, where he'll look to improve on his sub-par performance last weekend.
Kuechly (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday. Instead, Kuechly observed the proceedings from the sideline in a baseball cap. There's no telling where he stands in the concussion protocol at the moment, but his presence Wednesday induces at least a twinge of optimism that he'll be available soon. In the other hand, Kuechly's return will be at the discretion of an independent neurologist, leaving him without a definitive recovery timetable.
Kuechly (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Oakland, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. With nary a practice rep under his belt and more than a week removed from sustaining a concussion, the waiting game continues as Kuechly deals with a second head injury in as many seasons. Precedent was set in 2015, when he missed three contests, but every concussion must run its course, leaving Kuechly and the Panthers in limbo. In the meantime, it's unclear how the defense will replace the IDP maven due to fellow MLB A.J. Klein tending to a concussion of his own.
Kuechly (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports. Suffering from a concussion for the second time in as many seasons, Kuechly is poised to miss an undetermined amount of time. In 2015, he required a three-game stretch to receive clearance from the concussion protocol, but head injuries are among the murkiest to forecast. Expect A.J. Klein to fill in for Kuechly, assuming the former completes the aforementioned protocol himself.
Kuechly was diagnosed with a concussion after suffering a head injury Thursday against the Saints, ESPN.com reports. The team confirmed that Kuechly was in the concussion protocol, though they haven't specifically said he has been diagnosed with a concussion yet. After taking a seemingly light hit to the head during Thursday's game, Kuechly was unable to walk off the field under his own power, ultimately needing a cart to take him back to the locker room for further evaluation. Given the uncertainty with head injuries, it's unclear when Kuechly will be able to return.
