  • Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Suiting up Sunday

    Gross-Matos (hamstring) is active ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    The 2020 second-round pick out of Penn State was activated off injured reserve Saturday, and he's now in line to appear in his first game since Week 6. Gross-Matos will start alongside Brian Burns in the Panthers' Week 13 contest, and the two will look to cause problems for Baker Mayfield.

  • Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Activated Saturday

    The Panthers activated Gross-Matos (hamstring) off injured reserve Saturday, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Though Gross-Matos was activated to Carolina's active roster Saturday, he's still listed as questionable for Sunday's affair. The fourth-year linebacker had appeared in six games before suffering his hamstring injury, logging 14 total tackles, including three tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. If Gross-Matos is able to suit up this weekend, he'll likely serve as a rotational outside linebacker.

  • Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Nearing return

    Gross-Matos will now have a 21-day window to practice with the team before needing to be added to the 53-man roster. He is eligible to return as soon as Sunday against Tennessee, but it may be unlikely for the Penn State product to suit up with limited time to practice. Assuming he misses, his next opportunity to play would be Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Moving to OLB

    Gross-Matos will move to outside linebacker with Carolina transitioning to a 3-4 defense, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    New defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero is transitioning the Panthers from the 4-3 scheme they had been running the past three seasons. Gross-Matos previously was listed as a defensive end, but in the new system the 2020 second-round pick will need to learn to drop back into coverage more often. During his three-year NFL career, Gross-Matos has racked up 106 tackles, 8.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 43 appearances, playing a career-high 806 defensive snaps in 2022 as he moved into a starting role.
