Pride (undisclosed) may not be healthy for the start of training camp, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.
The 2020 fourth-round pick landed on injured reserve with a hip injury ahead of Week 17, and it's unclear if he's still managing that injury or if he's dealing with a new issue.

Pride (hip) was placed on IR on Saturday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Panthers' Troy Pride: Downgraded to out for Week 16
Pride (hip) will not travel with the team to Washington, and he's been ruled out for Week 16, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.
With Pride confirmed out for Week 16, Carolina's secondary will be devoid of the fourth-round rookie's services for the first time this season. Pride has started each of the Panthers' past four games, but the Notre Dame product remains in search of his first NFL interception. It's been a turbulent year in coverage for Pride, as opponents have racked up 14.1 yards per completion against him while logging a pair of passing TDs over 40 targets.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Troy Pride: MRI on tap
Coach Matt Rhule said Sunday that Pride will undergo an MRI on his hip and is doubtful for Week 16 against Washington, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.
The rookie out of Notre Dame suffered the groin injury in Saturday's loss to the Packers, and it appears there is some concern over the severity of the injury. Corn Elder stepped into a larger with Pride sidelined Saturday, so he'll be the favorite to do so again in Week 16 in the likely event Pride is sidelined. Expect the team to update Pride's status as needed heading into next week.... See More ... See Less

Panthers' Troy Pride: Matches career high
Pride finished with seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 46-23 loss to the Buccaneers.

Panthers' Troy Pride: Starting against Saints
Pride will start at cornerback Sunday against the Saints following news that Rasul Douglas was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.
The rookie fourth-round pick will make his third start of the season, and he's been a consistent contributor all year. With Douglas out, Pride is expected to handle a full workload with little competition. He's had typical rookie growing pains in coverage this season, allowing a 132.2 passer rating and two touchdowns when targeted, but Sunday's matchup should be a bit easier because Michael Thomas (ankle/hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders (COVID-19) are both inactive....

Panthers' Troy Pride: Back to depth role
Pride will be replaced by Rasul Douglas in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.
Pride was thrust into the starting lineup in Week 1 and performed well with seven tackles (four solo) in the loss. The rookie played 92 percent of the team's defensive snaps last week, so it's a bit surprising that he was demoted from the starting lineup. Pride certainly will still have a role in the defense, however, don't expect his production to equal last week's.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Troy Pride: Thrust into larger role
Pride finished with seven tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.
Pride started at cornerback due to teammate Eli Apple (ankle/foot) being sidelined, but the rookie quickly found himself in an even bigger role after Donte Jackson was forced to exit after 11 snaps due to an ankle injury of his own. Those absences enabled Pride to play 92 percent of Carolina's defensive snaps in his debut, and although he placed third on the team in tackles, that production was a byproduct of him struggling in coverage at times. The sledding won't get any easier in Week 2 at the Buccaneers, but Pride should at least be encouraged by the playing time likely available to him to improve.... See More ... See Less
