  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Will start Monday

    Henderson will start Monday's matchup against the Saints, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    With Jaycee Horn (hamstring) on injured reserve, Henderson will start opposite Donte Jackson. Henderson recorded three tackles across 31 snaps in Week 1, but he figures to see an uptick in production versus New Orleans.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Participating at FanFest

    Henderson (groin) is back to work after missing Tuesday's practice, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Misses camp practice

    Henderson (groin) was absent from Panthers camp Tuesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    The 2020 first-round pick has missed time after tweaking his groin Monday. Henderson was traded to Carolina from Jacksonville in 2021 for a fifth-round pick and the Panthers were not willing to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason. Though the Florida product has had a rocky start to his NFL career, he's still slated to start at corner ahead of the coming season.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Fifth-year option not picked up

    Henderson's fifth-year option was not exercised by the Panthers on Monday, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Henderson will now be a free agent after the conclusion of the 2023 season. The cornerback struggled to find his footing with Jacksonville to open his career after the team selected him in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and he now is going into his third season as a member of the Panthers. In 2022, Henderson recorded a career-high 58 tackles to go with six pass defenses (including two interceptions) and a forced fumble over 17 contests.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Logs full practice Tuesday

    Henderson (ankle) was a full participant at practice Tuesday ahead of Saturday's game versus Detroit, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Henderson was forced out of Carolina's loss versus Pittsburgh in Week 15 with an ankle injury, but it apparently wasn't severe, as he appears to be on track to play again in Week 16. He'll probably step back in as the Panthers' second boundary corner across from Jaycee Horn on Saturday.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Exits versus Pittsburgh

    Henderson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers with an ankle injury, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Henderson did not log a statistic before injuring his ankle at some point in the first half. The 24-year-old has stepped into a bigger role since starting cornerback Donte Jackson went down with a season-ending Achilles injury, playing every defensive snap in two of the Panthers' previous three games. With Henderson currently sidelined, Keith Taylor has stepped in for the time being, according to Steve Reed of the Associated Press.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Reaches career-high 10 tackles

    Henderson recorded 10 tackles during Sunday's 13-3 loss to the Ravens.

    Henderson recorded a new career-best 10 stops Sunday against Baltimore, while his previous career high was eight tackles on two separate occasions. With both of fellow cornerbacks Donte Jackson (Achilles) and Stantley Thomas-Oliver (thigh) currently on injured reserve, the 24-year-old is expected to play a prominent role in Carolina's secondary moving forward. The Panthers' next matchup comes Sunday versus the Broncos.
