  • 49ers' Zane Gonzalez: Dealt to 49ers

    Gonzalez, who previously appeared set to be released by the Panthers, was instead traded to the 49ers on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Gonzalez missed the majority of the 2022 season with a groin injury. Instead of bringing him back, the Panthers opted to re-sign his replacement, Eddy Pineiro after he drilled 33 of 35 field-goal attempts and 30 of 32 extra-point tries across 17 games. Gonzalez joins a 49ers roster that was previously without a kicker, and it remains to be seen if San Francisco brings any training camp competition to challenge him.

  • Zane Gonzalez: Set to be released

    The Panthers are slated to release Gonzalez, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After missing most of the 2022 season with a groin injury, the Panthers decided to release Gonzalez and re-sign Eddy Pineiro. Pineiro's success in relief of Gonzalez last year likely led to the anticipated release of the 27-year-old kicker, who Rapoport relays is now fully healthy as he seeks a new squad for the 2023 campaign.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Hits IR, done for the year

    The Panthers placed Gonzalez (groin) on injured reserve Tuesday, possibly ending his 2022 season, David Newton of reports.

    Gonzalez may require surgery to address a groin injury he sustained during Carolina's preseason finale versus Buffalo, and the timing of the 27-year-old kicker's placement on IR means he will miss the entire 2022 campaign unless he works out an injury settlement with the team. The Panthers don't currently have another kicker on the roster, meaning the team will have to prioritize making a signing in the aftermath of league-wide roster cutdowns.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Surgery TBD per Rhule

    Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said Monday that it's yet to be determined if Gonzalez (groin) will need surgery or how long he'll be out, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Gonzalez suffered the injury during Friday's preseason finale, but the extent of the issue remains unknown, though he is expected to miss a significant amount of time. He's currently the only kicker on Carolina's roster, so expect the Panthers to make a move for a replacement soon. More information on Gonzalez's status should come closer to Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Likely out long term

    Gonzalez is expected to be placed on injured reserve after suffering a "significant" groin injury, Ellis L. Williams of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    It's unclear if the injury is of the season-ending variety, but it certainly appears as if the veteran kicker will be out for a long period of time regardless. The Panthers don't currently have another kicker on the active, so expect the team to sign one shortly after roster cutdowns occur.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Needs cart to go to locker room

    Gonzalez (leg) was carted to the locker room during Friday's preseason game versus the Bills, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    According to Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site, Gonzalez went down after attempting a practice kick on the sideline as the team's offense entered the red zone. Gonzalez was steady for Carolina last season, making 20 of 22 field-goal attempts and 22 of 23 point-after tries in 12 appearances. It remains to be seen if the Panthers will be required to bring in a reinforcement at placekicker.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Officially has groin injury

    Gonzalez suffered a groin injury during Friday's preseason contest against the Bills, Schuyler Callihan of reports.

After taking a practice kick into the net, he went to the ground and eventually was carted to the locker room. While Gonzalez was deemed questionable to return, the Panthers soon may have to hold tryouts if the issue is considered a serious one.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Makes both kicks

    Gonzalez made his only field-goal attempt and extra-point try in Friday's 20-10 preseason loss to the Patriots.

    Gonzalez converted from 27 yards on his lone field goal, which along with a third-quarter PAT, netted him four points total. After inking a two-year deal with the Panthers this offseason, Gonzalez will return as the team's kicker after notching 82 points in 12 appearances for Carolina last season.
