05/25/17WRDevin FunchessAnkleQUESTIONABLEFunchess (ankle) isn't participating in Thursday's OTA session, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Funchess, who was carted off the field Wednesday, will be sidelined until at least next week when the team resumes OTA workouts. The severity of the ankle injury is still unclear, but the Panthers aren't likely to risk the long-term health of their projected No. 2 receiver this early in the offseason.

05/25/17LBLuke KuechlyBackQUESTIONABLEKuechly was held out of team drills Wednesday due to tightness in his lower back, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Kuechly sat out Wednesday merely as a precaution, so this injury shouldn't be anything that inhibits him by the time training camp arrives. In fact, it wouldn't be surprising if Keuchly was back on the field in the next day or so.

03/21/17DLCharles JohnsonBackQUESTIONABLEJohnson (back) has been a limited participant during the Panthers' OTAs this week, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Johnson, who underwent a procedure to repair a herniated disc earlier in the offseason, is on pace for a full return at training camp. The 30-year-old doesn't have much to prove in Carolina, so the team can gradually ease him back into action if need be.

03/21/17QBCam NewtonShoulderQUESTIONABLENewton (shoulder) likely won't be allowed to start throwing until late June, but he's still on track to be cleared for the beginning of training camp a month later, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official website reports.

Still only three weeks removed from March 30 surgery to repair a partially-torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder, Newton is on a cardio-heavy plan for the start of the Panthers' voluntary offseason program. He'll likely focus on the mental aspect of his game and endurance conditioning for the next couple months, before eventually easing into a more comprehensive routine that includes throwing and a regular weightlifting program. Newton's supporting cast looks similar to last season's, albeit with Charles Johnson and Russell Shepard replacing Ted Ginn (Saints) in the receiving corps, and left tackle Matt Kalil joining his older brother Ryan on the offensive line. The Panthers could still add more help, potentially using an early-round pick (or two) on a running back and/or wide receiver.

01/25/17DBTre BostonKneeQUESTIONABLEBoston (knee) signed with the Chargers on Friday.

Boston joins Los Angeles after spending the first three seasons of his career with the Panthers. The 24-year-old started 10 games for them last season, registering a career-best 53 tackles and two interceptions. However, after suffering a knee injury late in the year, Boston ended the campaign on injured reserve. As a result, he'll have to prove both his health and ability in order to stick with the Chargers.

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.
