Panthers' Star Lotulelei: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lotulelei (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Lotulelei sat out team drills during Thursday's session to rest a sore hamstring, but was a full participant just a day later. The imposing defensive tackle has endured his fair share of nagging injuries the past couple seasons, so it's no surprise if the Panthers decide to exercise caution with him on certain occasions this year.

Panthers' Star Lotulelei: Sits out team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lotulelei sat out team drills on Thursday due to tightness in his hamstring, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Lotulelei's hamstring tightness doesn't appear to be anything too serious and shouldn't impact him too much going forward. He was able to partake in individual drills and position drills prior to sitting out when full team drills began. Entering his fourth season, Lotulelei will again be the Panthers' starting defensive tackle and look to improve on his one sack, 22 tackle performance last year.

Panthers' Star Lotulelei: Has fifth-year option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Carolina Panthers exercised the fifth-year option on Star Lotulelei 's rookie contract.

Selected 14th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, Lotulelei has just six sacks in 44 games but has been consistently excellent against the run. Carolina's recent decision to rescind Josh Norman's franchise tag may have partially been due to the team's desire to save cap room for long-term extensions for Lotulelei and fellow defensive tackle Kawann Short.

Panthers DL Star Lotulelei limited in practice again Thursday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Panthers defensive lineman Star Lotulelei (foot) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.

For the second consecutive day, Lotulelei's practice reps were capped, but his presence was nonetheless encouraging, as it marked the first time he's gone through drills since sustaining a stress reaction in his right foot at the outset of training camp.

Friday's injury report should relay whether or not he's trending toward factoring into the Panthers' rotation at defensive tackle in Week 2.

Panthers DT Star Lotulelei getting closer to game action
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Panthers defensive tackle Star Lotulelei (foot) returned to practice in full pads Wednesday, Jonathan Jones of The Charlotte Observer reports.

This marks the first time Lotulelei participated in practice since suffering a stress fracture in his surgically repaired foot in August. It's a good sign for his status regarding Sunday's game.
