  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Back for two more seasons

    The Panthers re-signed Gonzalez (quadriceps) on Wednesday on a two-year, $4.5 million deal, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    By the time the Panthers take the field again, Gonzalez will be well past the quad issue that sidelined him late last season. Prior to missing Carolina's final four games of 2021, Gonzalez made 20 of his 22 field-goal attempts and hit 22 of his 23 extra-point tries in 12 games. While retaining the 26-year-old provides Carolina with some welcome stability at the kicker position, Gonzalez's fantasy prospects in 2022 hinge on the overall efforts of the franchise's offense, a unit that will likely undergo some retooling this offseason.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Placed on IR

    Carolina placed Gonzalez (quadriceps) on injured reserve Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports

    Gonzalez is thus done for the regular season due to the quad injury he suffered during pregame warmups prior to Sunday's loss to the Bills. As a replacement for Gonzalez, the Panthers signed Lirim Hajrullahu off the Washington's practice squad. Alex Kessman will join Carolina's practice squad to give the team another placekicking option if Hajrullahu falters in his team debut Week 16 against the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: May be done for season

    Gonzalez could be placed on injured reserve after he was diagnosed with a strained right quadriceps following an MRI on Monday, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The diagnosis is good news for Gonzalez, whom the Panthers feared had torn a muscle while warming up prior to Sunday's 31-14 loss to the Bills. Since the Panthers didn't have another player with NFL kicking experience on the roster, Carolina eschewed extra-point tries on both of its touchdowns and instead went for two. Though the Panthers haven't officially provided an update on Gonzalez's outlook for Week 16 and beyond, the team signed another kicker in Lirim Hajrullahu off Washington's practice squad, per Joe Person of The Athletic. Hajrullahu's addition likely foreshadows Gonzalez's eventual move to season-ending IR.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Undergoing MRI

    Gonzalez (quadriceps) will undergo an MRI on Monday to help determine the extent of his injury, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Gonzalez was unable to play Sunday against the Bills after he suffered a quad injury during pregame warmups, and the Panthers will bring in several kickers for a tryout this week, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Coach Matt Rhule said Monday that he needs to talk with doctors before the team determines whether Gonzalez is dealing with a season-ending injury.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Won't play Week 15

    The Panthers announced Gonzalez won't play Sunday against the Bills after suffering a right quadriceps injury during warmups, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    The injury occurred when Gonzalez lost his footing on the field while attempting a kick. After Gonzalez was helped to the locker room, Carolina had a number of players take part in kickoffs for the remainder of warmups. Emergency placekicking duties could fall to punter Lachlan Edwards or backup quarterback P.J. Walker, who served as a kicker in high school. Most likely, though, the Panthers will likely eschew extra-point tries in favor of two-point attempts for any touchdowns they score during the afternoon.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Suffers injury in warmups

    Gonzalez required assistance off the field after he suffered an apparent leg injury during warmups prior to Sunday's game in Buffalo, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Though Gonzalez officially remains active for the contest, he looks like he could be at risk of not playing in the game after coming down with the injury. Carolina doesn't have any other placekickers on the roster, so the team will most likely turn to punter Lachlan Edwards to handle that role. Edwards' inexperience as a placekicker could prompt head coach Matt Rhule to forgo longer-range extra-point and field-goal attempts throughout the contest.
