  • A.J. Bouye: Let go by Panthers

    Carolina released Bouye (foot) on Monday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Bouye missed the final four games of the 2021 campaign due to a foot injury, but there was optimism he could return before the end of the season, so health shouldn't interfere with his prospects on the open market. The 30-year-old cornerback could now be on track to suit up for his fourth different team in as many years.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Moves to injured reserve

    Bouye (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Coach Matt Rhule said Monday there was hope Bouye might be able to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, but the shift to injured reserve instead ends the cornerback's regular season. The Panthers will need to make the playoffs for Bouye to have a chance of seeing the field again this year.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Could return in Week 16

    Coach Matt Rhule said Monday that Bouye (foot) will see if he can play this week, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Bouye was unavailable for Sunday's loss to the Bills after he was unable to practice last week, but he has a chance to return against the Buccaneers on Sunday. His status will likely come into focus based on his participation in practice ahead of Week 16.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Ruled out for Week 15

    Bouye (foot) won't play Sunday against the Bills.

    Bouye has been ruled out after failing to practice at all throughout the week. He sustained the injury last week against the Falcons. Keith Taylor will likely start opposite Stephon Gilmore in Carolina's secondary with Bouye sidelined.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Dealing with foot injury

    Bouye is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons due a foot injury, Schuyler Callihan of SI.com reports.

    Bouye suffered the injury in the first half of the game, and he broke up one pass prior to being sidelined. If Bouye is unable to return, Keith Taylor could see an increased role.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Expected to play Sunday

    Bouye (coach's decision) is expected to play Sunday at Dallas, according to Joe Person of The Athletic.

    Carolina's head coach Matt Rhule said he expects Bouye to feature Sunday in what would be the season debut for the veteran cornerback. Bouye missed the first two contests of the season due to an existing suspension that extended into 2021 and was apparently dealing with a soft-tissue injury over the last few days, but the coach's words make it fairly clear that he's going to take the field at some point Sunday.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Season debut delayed

    Bouye (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game at Houston, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Bouye missed the first two contests of the season due to an existing suspension that extended into 2021. According to Joe Person of The Athletic, Bouye appears to be tending to a soft-tissue injury, even though he wasn't on any of the team's Week 3 practice reports. In any case, the Panthers will delay his season debut to Week 4, at least.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Suspension lifted

    Bouye's suspension was officially uplifted Monday, Howard Balzer of SI.com reports.

    Bouye, while with the Broncos, was suspended for six games in the latter half of the 2020 NFL season for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy. He has now completed the suspension and will be available for the Panthers going forward. He is expected to provide depth at cornerback.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Sidelined with soft-tissue injury

    Coach Matt Rhule said Thursday that Bouye (suspension) could miss "a couple weeks" due to a soft-tissue injury, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Bouye is already set to miss the first two games of the 2021 season due to a suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy, making his earliest possible return date Week 3. As long as the veteran cornerback has managed to return by then, he could push for a starting spot across from Donte Jackson, but it won't be good news if Bouye is forced to miss a significant amount of practice time.

  • Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Signs with Carolina

    Bouye (suspension) agreed to a contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Bouye is coming off a turbulent season with the Broncos, as he played just seven games due to a dislocated shoulder before being hit with a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy. The 29-year-old cornerback will need to serve two more games of that suspension in 2021. Once activated, Bouye will likely challenge Rashaan Melvin for a starting role opposite No. 1 corner Donte Jackson.

  • A.J. Bouye: Released by Denver

    The Broncos will release Bouye (suspension) on Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Traded from Jacksonville to Denver last offseason, Bouye made only seven appearances for the Broncos in 2020, first dealing with a dislocated shoulder before he was handed a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy. He'll still need to serve two games of the suspension at the beginning of the 2021 season, but he could still draw some interest as a potential starter. Bouye has made 51 starts for three different teams over the past five years, recording 56 pass breakups and nine interceptions during that span.
