Coach Matt Rhule expects Short (shoulder) to be ready for training camp, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short landed on injured reserve back in early October after a shoulder injury required surgery. The timing should allow him to return healthy for the beginning of on-field activities as he enters the fourth season of a five-year, $80.5 million contract. Short averaged 50.3 tackles, 6.9 sacks and 1.8 forced fumbles per season from 2015 to 2018, playing 62 of a possible 64 games.
