Short went to Sunday's Pro Bowl as a replacement for Rams defensive end Aaron Donald. Short missed the final two games of the season with a calf injury, but it seems he's healthy again. The soon-to-be 30-year-old remains under contract in 2019 with another gaudy $17 million cap hit.
Short (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game at New Orleans, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports. Short has been battling the calf issue for the last couple of weeks and will finish the season sitting out the last two games. Kyle Love and Vernon Butler should both see increased snap counts alongside Dontari Poe Sunday against the Saints.
Short (calf) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Falcons, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. With the Panthers out of playoff contention, there's no reason for the team to rush its top defensive tackle back into the lineup. Short's having a down year with just three sacks after recording 24.5 over the previous three seasons. Expect both Vernon Butler and Kyle Love to see upticks in usage Sunday.
Short (calf) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Short may have received the questionable tag, but coach Ron Rivera said Friday he would "be surprised if he doesn't play." The 29-year-old played through the injury Week 15 and was on the field for 47 of 75 defensive snaps, a fairly standard workload for the defensive tackle.
Short (calf) is active for Monday night's game against the Saints, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports. Short suffered a calf injury in practice this week and was originally listed as doubtful before being upgraded to questionable. The 29-year-old defensive tackle will look to add to his three sacks Monday night.
