02/23/17RBDevon JohnsonBackQUESTIONABLEJohnson was placed on the Panthers waived/injured list Thursday, The Washington Post reports.

Johnson, un undrafted rookie who played tight end at Marshall, profiles more as a fullback than running back in the NFL. However, the Panthers were already set at that position with incumbent starting FB Mike Tolbert. However, Johnson's injury remains undisclosed, but his release cleared room for the addition of OT Willie Smith.

01/26/17DLChas AlecxihKneeQUESTIONABLEAlecxih ended the 2016 season on injured reserve.

Alecxih had surgery to repair significant damage to his left knee in August, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Alecxih has been in training camp with several teams over the course of the past five years but has never managed to make a regular season roster. He'll be hoping to finally catch on with the Panthers as a depth lineman and special teams player in 2017.

01/25/17DBTre BostonKneeQUESTIONABLEBoston (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Boston injured his knee in Saturday's loss to the Flacons and the specifics of the injury have yet to be disclosed. It's unclear how severe the injury or if it will linger into offseason workouts. Travell Dixon was signed off the practice squad to fill the roster spot vacated by Boston.

01/25/17WRLaRon ByrdConcussionQUESTIONABLEByrd (concussion) was placed on the Panthers' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

Byrd suffered a head injury during Carolina's second game of the preseason. He enjoyed a solid training camp up until that point, though, and will likely take aim at cracking the Panthers' roster once again in 2017.

01/25/17DLRyan DelaireKneeQUESTIONABLEDelaire (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, David Newton of ESPN reports.

Delaire appeared in only six games for Carolina this season, as he missed a chunk of time while on IR from Week 4 to Week 12. The Panthers signed Larry Webster from the practice squad to fill Delaire's roster spot for Sunday's season finale against Tampa Bay.

01/25/17DBDean MarloweHamstringQUESTIONABLEMarlowe (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Marlowe ends his 2016-17 campaign after only 16 snaps in his season debut against the 49ers on Sunday. The undrafted safety suffered a hamstring injury early in the preseason and finally appeared healthy enough to play on Sunday. Unfortunately he aggregated the injury early in the game, leaving the Panthers no choice but to pull the plug on the 24-year-old's season. Marlowe's injury creates a hole in Carolina's special teams unit and leaves Kurt Coleman as the only strong safety on the active roster.

01/25/17DBZack SanchezGroinQUESTIONABLESanchez (groin) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Joe Person of the Charolotte Observer reports.

Sanchez, a fifth-rounder out of Oklahoma, was promoted to the active roster in early October and appeared in five games for the Panthers this season. He'll finish his rookie campaign with nine tackles but no other defensive statistics.

01/25/17DBTeddy WilliamsKneeQUESTIONABLEWilliams (knee) was placed on the Panthers' injured reserve list Friday, ESPN reports.

Williams sustained a mysterious injury to his left knee towards the beginning of Thursday's practice that evidently proved to be serious in nature. Leonard Johnson (Achilles), who was activated from the Panthers' NFI list Friday, will take his place on the active roster.

01/14/17KGraham GanoFootQUESTIONABLEGano underwent surgery Friday to repair a broken bone in the heel of his plant foot, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Gano originally suffered the injury during Week 14's win over the Chargers, but he was able to play through the pain throughout the Panthers' final three games. He figures to be back at full health by the time training camp rolls around.

01/03/17QBCam NewtonShoulderQUESTIONABLENewton will not undergo surgery on his shoulder this offseason.

Newton has been bothered by his shoulder for the past handful of weeks, leaving him as a limited participant in practice most days. The reigning MVP will just need to rest the shoulder over the next few months and should be cleared to participate in offseason workouts.

(Updated 01/03/2017)
01/02/17DLCharles JohnsonFootQUESTIONABLEJohnson (foot) was ruled out of Sunday's game in Tampa Bay.

Johnson returned from a two-game absence to suit up for last week's contest versus the Falcons, but it isn't clear if he had sustained a setback while playing. In his absence, look for Kony Ealy to get the start at defensive end opposite Wes Horton.
