Kalil (shoulder) is "100 percent healed" after undergoing shoulder surgery last November, ESPN's David Newton reports.
Kalil suffered a season-ending injury to the rotator cuff in his right shoulder last November and finished the 2016 season on injured reserve. Now that he's back to full health, he should be available for the start of the Panthers' offseason program on April 17.
Coach Ron Rivera said Thursday that Kalil (shoulder) could miss part or all of the Panthers' OTAs, but is on track to be ready for the start of the season, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Kalil finished the season on injured reserve after undergoing surgery to repair his right shoulder in November. Although his status for the team's early offseason work seems to be in doubt, the veteran should be a full go once the season gets underway. Fortunately, Person is reporting that backup center Gino Gradkowski (knee) is closer to being ready to return and could be able to participate in OTAs.
Kalil (shoulder) finished the 2016 season on injured reserve, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Kalil underwent shoulder surgery in late November that forced him to miss the final month of the season. He is, however, expected to be back in time for offseason practices and shouldn't be hindered by the injury at all in 2017.
Kalil will undergo surgery to repair his injured right shoulder, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Kalil was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after dealing with shoulder issues all season. Look for more updates on his status to come once he undergoes surgery. In the meantime, the Panthers will be shuffling around offensive lineman the remainder of the season as they ended Sunday's loss to the Raiders with only one regular starter on the line.
