Love (ankle) will play in Sunday's game. Love had been nursing an ankle injury prior to Sunday, but having practiced this week without any setbacks it seemed likely he would suit up.
Love (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice and remains questionable for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. After not practicing Thursday, Love's chances of suiting up Sunday seemed grim. Things took a favorable turn, though, and with Vernon Butler (knee) doubtful for the season opener, Love could be positioned for extra work.
Love is out with an ankle injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports. The severity of Love's ankle problem isn't clear. He's likely in danger of missing the Panthers' preseason opener Wednesday against the Texans.
Love re-signed Wednesday with the Panthers on a two-year extension, Max Henson of Panthers.com reports. The Panthers have made maintaining their depth along the front four a priority in free agency, as Love is the fourth defensive lineman to re-sign with the team this offseason. Love is expected to serve in a reserve capacity at defensive tackle in 2017 after logging 16 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 10 games last season.
Love (knee) is inactive for Sunday's tilt with the Chiefs. Love is sidelined with a knee aliment, leaving Vernon Butler and Paul Soliai as the only healthy backups at defensive tackle Sunday.
