  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Career-worst campaign

    Thomas finished the regular season with five catches on nine targets for 56 yards in 12 games. Thomas endured the worst campaign of his six-year career, with his five missed games playing a factor. Even when healthy, though, Thomas has long been a blocking tight end, not topping 200 receiving yards since his rookie year. With the Panthers having a potential out from the final year of Thomas' current contract, it remains to be seen whether he'll return to Carolina under a new front office and coaching staff.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Suiting up for Week 16

    Thomas (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. Thomas will return from a one-game absence caused by an ankle injury. He logged a full practice session Friday, so he should be able to return to his typical role of splitting reps with Tommy Tremble and Stephen Sullivan.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Logs another limited session

    Thomas (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. Thomas has now practiced for the second consecutive day after missing Carolina's Week 15 win over the Falcons with an ankle issue. The veteran tight end will almost certainly carry an injury designation into the weekend unless he's able to record a full practice session Friday. Thomas' availability will be something to look out for as the week progresses, as Carolina could be without both Tommy Tremble (illness) and Hayden Hurst (concussion) in Week 16.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Gets in limited practice Wednesday

    Thomas (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. Thomas sat out of Sunday's win versus the Falcons due to an ankle injury, but he was able to manage a limited practice to begin the new week. He'll still likely need to practice in full Thursday or Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Won't play vs. Falcons

    Thomas (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Falcons. Thomas will sit out for the fifth time this season in Week 15, this time due to an ankle injury. In his absence, Tommy Tremble will probably see more reps on early downs and around the goal line.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Remains sidelined Thursday

    Thomas (ankle) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. Stephen Sullivan is the lone healthy Carolina tight end, after both Thomas and Hayden Hurst (concussion) logged DNPs Wednesday and Thursday, while Tommy Tremble (hip) got in a pair of limited sessions. Thomas has four catches for 51 scoreless yards on six targets across nine appearances this season.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Logs DNP

    Thomas (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Thomas exited Sunday's game against the Saints with the injury and appears to still need more time to recover. The sixth-year tight end will likely need to ramp up his activity level over the next two days to play Week 15 against the Falcons.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Questionable to return

    Thomas is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints with an ankle injury, John Hendrix of SI.com reports. The third-string tight end did not record a catch before exiting. Thomas has four catches for 51 yards and no touchdowns in 2023.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Catches lone look

    Thomas caught his only target for six yards in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Buccaneers. Thomas made his usual contribution, hauling in a spare target for the second straight week. With rare involvement in the passing game, his stock remains rather restricted.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Catches lone look

    Thomas caught his only target for nine yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Titans. Thomas' reception was just his third this season and his first since Week 5. After an extended absence due to a calf injury, the veteran has returned for the past two games but holds most of his value as a blocker.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Activated from IR

    The Panthers activated Thomas (calf) from injured reserve Saturday, but he remains questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports. Thomas has sat out Carolina's past four contests while on IR with a calf injury. He was designated to return Monday and practiced in full Friday after logging limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday. Thomas' potential return is timely, with Hayden Hurst set to miss Week 11 due to a concussion.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Questionable for Sunday vs. Cowboys

    Thomas (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus Dallas, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. Thomas was able to log a full practice Friday, likely putting him on the probable end of the official questionable designation. If he can't play, 2021 third-rounder Tommy Tremble will probably continue to see more playing time as a result.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Logs another limited practice

    Thomas (calf) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Thomas was designated to return from injured reserve earlier in the week, and he's been able to record limited practice sessions both Wednesday and Thursday. The 27-year-old tight end will likely carry an injury designation into the weekend, and he must be activated to the Panthers' active roster in order to suit up Sunday.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Returns to practice

    Thomas (calf) was a limited participant during practice Wednesday. Thomas was designated to return from injured reserve Monday, so a slow start with practice makes sense for the Indiana product. Whether he'll be ready to return Sunday against the Cowboys remains up in the air, but the Panthers still have plenty of time in their 21-day window to move him back onto the active roster.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Gets green light to practice

    Carolina designated Thomas (calf) for return from injured reserve Monday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. The move allows Thomas to return to practice and starts the clock on a 21-day period during which the Panthers may officially activate him. Carolina's official injury reports over the week will shine some light on his potential availability for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Out at least four weeks

    Thomas (calf) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. As a result, Thomas will miss at minimum of four weeks. Primarily a blocking specialist, the sixth-year tight end has just two catches through six weeks and has played only 85 total offensive snaps, far fewer than when he averaged over 600 the past two seasons. Stephen Sullivan (hip) was activated off injured reserve in a corresponding move.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Now questionable for Week 6

    Thomas (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Miami. Thomas has played in all five of Carolina's games so far this season and was not listed on the injury report Wednesday or Thursday, but after presumably sustaining a calf injury during practice, his availability for Sunday is now in jeopardy. Tommy Tremble would likely be in line for more snaps if Thomas is forced to sit out.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: No touchdowns in 2022

    Thomas caught 21 of 30 targets for 197 yards while playing all 17 games in the 2022 season. Thomas filled his usual blocking role while sharing the tight-end targets alongside Tommy Tremble for a second straight year. While Thomas' production over the past four seasons hasn't changed much, he notably hasn't scored since 2020. Despite the possibility of a new coaching staff and starting quarterback in 2023, it's hard to envision Thomas' value shifting significantly.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Catches one pass

    Thomas caught one of three targets for 12 yards in Week 16's 37-23 win over the Lions. Thomas broke his three-game multi-catch streak but has still hauled in at least one pass in all 15 appearances this season. He'll strive to keep that streak going Sunday versus the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Set to play Saturday

    Thomas (thigh) was a full participant during practice Thursday and does not carry an injury designation ahead of Saturday versus Detroit. Thomas popped up with a thigh injury and logged back-to-back limited sessions to begin Week 16 prep. However, the 26-year-old is still in line to play his 14th game in a row this season. Thomas has caught 19 passes on 26 targets for 176 yards in 2022, and he should reprise his role as the Panthers' No. 2 tight end Tommy Tremble.
