  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Remains in Carolina

    Jackson agreed to a three-year, $35 million contract with the Panthers on Saturday. Jackson, a 2018 second-round pick, has been a key piece of Carolina's secondary over the past four years, and he totaled 61 tackles, 10 pass breakups, two interceptions and one forced fumble in 12 games during 2021. He missed the final five games of the season after undergoing groin surgery in November, but it appears he's now healthy since the procedure carried an initial recovery timeline of six weeks.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Recovering from surgery

    Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday that Jackson underwent groin surgery after being placed on injured reserve Nov. 30, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Jackson suffered the groin injury Week 12 and finished the season with 61 tackles, 10 pass breakups and two interceptions across his 12 appearances. Rhule mentioned that the recovery period for the cornerback's procedure was estimated at six weeks, so the cornerback should be close to full strength at this point. Even so, with the Panthers eliminated from playoff contention, Jackson won't be a candidate to return from IR ahead of Sunday's season finale in Tampa Bay.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Hits double digits

    Jackson finished with 11 tackles (10 solo) and defended a pass in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Dolphins. Jackson's issues in coverage again resulted in him racking up the tackles, as he's now made 20 over the past two weeks. The veteran has also defended a pass in three straight games, giving him 10 on the season, but he'll strive to shore up his coverage when the Panthers return from their bye.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Struggles in coverage

    Jackson finished with eight tackles (six solo) and defended a pass in Sunday's 27-21 loss to Washington. Jackson placed second on the Panthers in stops, but that partially came because of his struggles in coverage and subsequent need to tackle after allowing receptions. Although Jackson did break one pass up, he'll strive for an improved showing in Week 12 versus the Dolphins.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Interception in win

    Jackson finished with four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Cardinals. Jackson picked off opposing quarterback Colt McCoy in the first quarter, giving him his second interception of the season. The veteran also defended another pass Sunday, bringing his tally to a team-high eight on the campaign.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Turbulent third season

    Jackson finished the 2020 season with 34 tackles (22 solo) and three interceptions on 11 passes defended in 14 games played. The hope was Jackson would fill James Bradberry's shoes as Carolina's top cornerback following the veteran's free-agent departure last offseason. While Jackson responded with two interceptions in his first three games, he was plagued by a toe injury afterward, hurting his performance. Overall, the usually speedy cornerback played just over half of the Panthers' defensive snaps, and although, he still posted a new career high in pass breakups, Jackson also saw his tackle total decline for a second straight year. The mercurial former second-rounder will now enter the final season of his rookie contract in hopes of a healthy and productive 2021 campaign.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Ready to rock

    Jackson (toe) was a full participant during Thursday's practice. Coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday he expects Jackson to play in Sunday's game against Denver, so this news certainly helps confirm that notion. Jackson has missed the last two games with the toe issue, and his return to the lineup should help bolster the secondary. It's unclear what sort of role Jackson will have for the contest, but he's racked up 18 tackles (12 solo), six pass breakups and three interceptions through 10 games this campaign.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Still not practicing

    Jackson (toe) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice. The 25-year-old sat out Sunday's win over the Lions after aggravating the toe injury Week 10, Jackson has dealt with the injury for most of the season, though Sunday was the first time he was inactive in 2020. Troy Pride and Corn Elder should have increased defensive roles while Jackson is unavailable.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Doubtful for Week 11

    Jackson (toe) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports. Jackson has been playing through this injury for a while but seemed to hurt it further in the last game and will likely have to miss additional time as a result. Corn Elder will likely bump up to a starting role if Jackson sits.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Toe remains bothersome

    Jackson is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a toe injury, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Practices fully Wednesday

    Jackson (toe) logged a full practice Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports. Jackson's return to practice coupled with coach Matt Rhule's optimism regarding the cornerback's injury earlier in the week pave the way for Jackson to suit up Sunday against the Chiefs. He'll need to be at the top of his game to help slow down a high-octane Kansas City passing attack that produced five touchdowns last week.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Questionable to return Thursday

    Jackson is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Falcons with a toe injury, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Questionable for Week 7

    Jackson (toe) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Suffers ankle injury

    Jackson is questionable to return after suffering an ankle injury during the team's Week 1 contest against the Raiders, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports. It's unclear how Jackson sustained the injury or the severity of the ailment. However, his absence would further thin an already lean secondary for the Panthers as they are already relying on rookie Troy Pride as a starter opposite Jackson.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Turbulent second season

    Jackson finished the 2019 season with 40 tackles (32 solo), three interceptions (on eight passes defended) and one fumble recovery in 13 games played. Jackson, Carolina's second-round choice in 2018, saw declines from his 74 tackles and four picks as a rookie. While missing three games with a groin injury contributed toward that, so did Jackson's benching late in the season after surrendering too many big plays. The speedster will aim for more consistency in 2020 and could very well regain his starting position, but the Panthers will be eager to re-sign top corner James Bradberry to avoid overexposing the mercurial Jackson.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Officially listed as questionable

    Jackson (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Coach Ron Rivera said Friday that Jackson tweaked something during Wednesday's practice, according to Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer, but that he's optimistic the second-year cornerback will play Week 4. If Jackson is able to suit up, he'll likely play his usual starting role in Carolina's secondary across from James Bradberry.

  • Panthers' Donte Jackson: Not practicing Wednesday

    Jackson (quadriceps) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Jackson sustained the quadriceps injury Sunday against the Seahawks. It was seemingly serious enough to force him out of the game after the first play and keep him from returning. The Charlotte Observer's Jourdan Rodrigue reported that the LSU product worked on the side instead of missing practice completely. Jackson has made comments that indicate he's feeling better and that the injury won't be a long-term issue, but his practice statuses throughout the week will help paint a better picture.
