Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Cleared for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly (shoulder) has been cleared for practice, but head coach Ron Rivera indicated the star middle linebacker will be eased back into action, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kuechly underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair a partially-torn labrum suffered Week 17 versus the Bucs. His recovery from which has reportedly been setback-free, and, now cleared for training camp, should be set to patrol the middle of the Panthers vaunted defense come Carolina's Week 1 Super Bowl rematch with Denver.

Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin: Cleared for camp, will ramp up activity slowly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers cleared Benjamin (knee) for training camp, but he'll be eased into action, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

On Thursday, Benjamin's initial routes at Wofford College will mark his first "full" practice since tearing the ACL in his left knee during an intrasquad practice with the Dolphins last August, according to David Newton of In his absence, Cam Newton was forced to use all the receiving options at his disposal, and the most productive season of the quarterback's career ensued. Although Benjamin's return will be welcomed by Newton and the rest of the offense, the lessons learned by Newton could result in less attention paid to Benjamin. Nevertheless, in their sole campaign together in 2014, Benjamin rattled off 73 receptions (on 145 targets) for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benwikere (lower leg) will be on the Panthers' physically unable to perform list to begin training camp, Jonathan Jones of The Observer reports.

Benwikere was originally expected to be ready for the start of camp, but it seems that his lower leg fracture is continuing to bother him a bit. Despite beginning camp on the PUP list the team doesn't seem concerned about his status for the regular season. He can return to practice at anytime.

Panthers' Kurt Coleman: Inks three-year extension with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Coleman agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Panthers on Tuesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

In his first season with Carolina, Coleman served as a defensive catalyst and helped lead the Panthers to the Super Bowl. The 28-year-old safety led the team with a career-high seven interceptions and also made 90 tackles. With cornerback Josh Norman no longer a piece of the Panthers' secondary, Carolina seems to have fully invested in Coleman.

Panthers' Kawann Short: To attend training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Short will be present when the Panthers begin training camp on July 28,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

Short skipped a few of the Panthers' OTA sessions while negotiating a new long-term contract, but he won't let that situation impact his training camp attendance. After a breakout 11-sack campaign in 2015, Short is now entering the final year of his rookie deal, but will hope to reach a lucrative agreement to remain in Carolina by continuing to display his Pro Bowl-caliber talent this season.
