Panthers' Luke Kuechly: 11 tackles and an interception against Niners
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kuechly posted a team-high 11 tackles (four solo) and intercepted a pass during Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Kuechly has now totaled 21 tackles through Carolina's first two games, which is remarkably the sort of production onlookers have come to expect since he entered the league five years ago. Arguably the NFL's best linebacker, Kuechly's interception Sunday marked the 12th of his career. Looking ahead, the 25-year-old could be in store for another big game this weekend against the Vikings, who could be without star running back Adrian Peterson (knee).

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: 10 tackles to start season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kuechly finished with a game-high 10 tackles (all solo) in Thursday's season-opening loss to the Broncos.

Kuechly was all over the field Thursday, making one tackle for loss and starting the campaign with yet another double-digit tackling performance. The All-Pro linebacker is as good of an IDP option as they come and will lead the Panthers' defense as it hopes to rebound in Week 2 next Sunday versus the 49ers.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Cleared for practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kuechly (shoulder) has been cleared for practice, but head coach Ron Rivera indicated the star middle linebacker will be eased back into action, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kuechly underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair a partially torn labrum suffered Week 17 versus the Bucs. His recovery has reportedly been setback-free, and, now cleared for training camp, he should be set to patrol the middle of the Panthers' vaunted defense come Carolina's Week 1 Super Bowl rematch with Denver.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Should be ready for beginning of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he expects Kuechly (shoulder) to be ready for the start of training camp in late July, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Kuechly suffered a partial labrum tear in Week 17 last season, yet still managed to record 29 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery, four passes defensed and two interceptions (both returned for TDs) in three playoff games. He had offseason surgery and was thus limited to team drills during OTAs and minicamp, but his availability for training camp has never been in much question. Still only 25, Kuechly will look to get back north of 150 tackles after a concussion cost him three games last year.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: On pace for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luke Kuechly is on pace for a return after getting rid of the sling that aided in the immediate recovery from surgery on the partially torn labrum in his left shoulder, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports. "It's going to be a gradual process," Kuechly said. "Once everybody gets back I'll be able to do some stuff, but they are going to alter and modify what I can do. We have time so we might as well use the time."

Kuechly suffered the ailment in the regular season finale but missed no time thereafter, whether it was practice or in game, and he proceeded to make history, returning an interception for a touchdown in back-to-back playoff games. In addition to the game-breaking plays against the Seahawks and Cardinals, he totaled 29 tackles, one sack, and one fumble recovery during the Carolina Panthers ' three-game postseason run. As he proceeds through rehabilitation, Kuechly noted that he's avoiding weight-bearing exercises in favor of more cardio, namely "bike stuff and lower body stuff."
