  • Cardinals' Pat Elflein: Lands on IR

    Elflein (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    The nature of Elflein's injury is unclear at this point in time. He was competing for a depth role on the Cardinals' offensive line before landing on IR. He is now set to spend the entire season on the sideline while he focuses on his recovery.

  • Cardinals' Pat Elflein: Signs with Arizona

    Elflein and the Cardinals agreed on a contract Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Elflein will join the Cardinals ahead of their training camp and he will likely operate as the team's backup center behind Hjalte Froholdt in 2023. The 29-year-old suffered a season-ending hip injury in October as a member of the Panthers, but he now appears to be fully healthy heading into this season.

  • Pat Elflein: Released by Panthers

    The Panthers released Elflein (hip) with a failed physical designation Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Signed to a three-year deal ahead of the 2021 season, Elflein battled injuries in Carolina, missing 19 of 34 games for the Panthers. He required hip surgery back in October, and another team may want to make sure he's healthy before bringing him aboard. Elflein's release clears over $4.2 million in cap space.

  • Panthers' Pat Elflein: Set for season-ending surgery

    Elflein is due to undergo a hip surgery that will end his 2022 season, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    A hip issue that cropped up after Week 6 held Elflein out of Sunday's win versus Tampa Bay, and it will now keep the 28-year-old center sidelined for the rest of the campaign. Bradley Bozeman should serve as a more than capable replacement for the rest of the year.

  • Panthers' Pat Elflein: Placed on IR

    Elflein (hip) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Elflein was considered unlikely to play Sunday against the Buccaneers due to the injury. However, it appears the injury was severe enough that not only will he not play Sunday, but he'll miss at least the next four weeks. Bradley Bozeman should handle the center position until Elflein can return to action.

  • Panthers' Pat Elflein: Unlikely to play vs. Tampa

    Coach Steve Wilks said Friday that he does not expect Elflein (hip) to play Sunday versus Tampa Bay, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Elflein is officially listed as questionable on Carolina's practice report, but it sounds as though he's on the 'doubtful' end of that designation. Bradley Bozeman should step in as the Panthers' starting center for Week 7.

  • Panthers' Pat Elflein: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Elflein (hip) was a non-participant in practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Elflein's status in practice over the next two days will shed light on how likely he is to suit up Sunday against the Buccaneers. If he is unable to play, Bradley Bozeman will likely draw the start at center.

  • Panthers' Pat Elflein: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Panthers placed Elflein (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Elflein returned from a hamstring injury in mid-November and has started each of the last five games. It's not yet clear whether he's tested positive for COVID-19, but Sam Tecklenburg would likely draw the start if Elflein is unavailable Sunday against Tampa Bay.
