Panthers' Andy Lee: Fully recovered from 2016 hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (hamstring) is fully recovered from his 2016 season-ending hamstring injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Lee pulled his hamstring in mid November and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. He instantly slots back in as the Panthers' top punter now that he's back to full strength.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Fully cleared for offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly (concussion) has been fully cleared for the start of offseason workouts, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official website reports.

Kuechly missed the final six games of last season while recovering from a concussion, though he did say he was medically cleared around Week 13 or 14, which suggests he might have played the final few games if Carolina had been in the playoff hunt. A concussion also cost him three games the previous season, but his risk for additional head injuries may not be quite as bad as it initially seems, considering he didn't have a documented history of concussion in the NFL prior to 2015. Kuechly still produced at his usual elite level on a per-game basis the past two seasons, averaging 9.6 tackles while recording five interceptions, three forced fumbles and three sacks in 23 appearances.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Remains on track for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (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.

Panthers' Michael Oher: Participating in offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oher (concussion) has been an active participant during offseason workouts, ESPN's David Newton reports.

Oher has yet to be cleared through the league's concussion protocol since suffering the head injury back in Week 4 of the regular season. According to the report, Oher has been working out five days a week and is on pace to be ready before the start of training camp. It appears as though Oher will still be able to participate in team workouts regardless of whether or not the league clears Oher before mandatory minicamp. While it has been a long road to recovery, it appears that the 30-year-old is closing in on a full recovery.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Facing throwing restrictions throughout OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) will be restricted from throwing throughout OTAs, ESPN's David Newton reports.

Newton underwent surgery on March 30 to repair a partially-torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. Despite this team-imposed ban on him throwing any footballs for the time being, Newton will still be allowed to participate in the Panthers' strength and conditioning program, which began Monday and lasts approximately two weeks. OTAs then continue on through June 9 with minicamp commencing June 13. If Newton isn't cleared to resume throwing by then, he'll likely be forced to wait until late July for the start of training camp to test out his surgically-repaired shoulder.
