  • Keith Kirkwood: Returns to practice squad

    Kirkwood reverted to the Panthers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Kirkwood was active for third time this season in Week 18, as he filled in for Shi Smith (illness) and Terrace Marshall (foot). He did not record a reception but was targeted once on 10 offensive snaps. Kirkwood ends the campaign with three receptions for 17 yards, his best totals since his rookie season in 2018.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Elevated for finale

    Kirkwood was elevated from the Panthers' practice squad Saturday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Kirkwood hasn't been active since Week 8, but with Shi Smith (illness) likely sidelined and Robby Anderson (quadriceps) questionable, the team is in need of depth at wide receiver. Even with those potential absences, Kirkwood is likely to work behind at least DJ Moore and Brandon Zylstra.

  • Keith Kirkwood: Sent back to practice squad

    Kirkwood reverted to the Panthers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Kirkwood was called upon with Terrace Marshall (concussion) unable to play Sunday against the Falcons. Kirkwood played 47 percent of the Panthers' offensive snaps, filing in behind only DJ Moore and Robby Anderson at wide receiver. Despite the abundance of snaps, Kirkwood only had one target, which he was unable to corral. If Marshall can't go Week 9 against the Giants, Kirkwood will hope to be elevated to the active roster again.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Moves to active roster

    The Panthers elevated Kirkwood on Saturday.

    Kirkwood made his first appearance of the season last week, catching three of five passes for a total of 17 yards in the loss to the Giants. The fourth-year wide receiver saw 27 of the 64 offensive snaps in the aforementioned contest with nominal No. 3 wideout Terrace Marshall out with a concussion. Given that Marshall will once again be unable to suit up Sunday, Kirkwood could be in line for a similar workload.

  • Keith Kirkwood: Returns to practice squad

    Kirkwood reverted to Carolina's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Kirkwood hauled in his first three catches of the season in Week 7 against the Giants, logging 29 of his team's 64 offensive snaps in the loss. He was also on the field for 10 special-teams snaps.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Catches three passes

    Kirkwood caught three of five targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 25-3 loss to the Giants.

    Kirkwood was activated with fellow wideout Terrace Marshall (concussion) sidelined. In his first action of 2021, the veteran finished third on the Panthers in receiving yards, but his total was underwhelming overall. Kirkwood's status for Week 8 versus the Falcons could depend on Marshall's availability, but the depth receiving role in a struggling Panthers offense doesn't coincide with much fantasy value anyway.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Elevated by Carolina

    Kirkwood was elevated from the Panthers' practice squad Saturday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Kirkwood made just one appearance during the 2020 campaign and hauled in one of two targets for 13 yards. He'll serve as depth at wide receiver while Terrace Marshall (concussion) is out.

  • Keith Kirkwood: Waived by Carolina

    The Panthers waived Kirkwood on Tuesday, Darin Gantt of Panthers.com reports.

    Kirkwood suffered a severe concussion during a training-camp practice, causing him to be taken off the field on a stretcher and immediately sent to the hospital. The move was made without an injury designation, so it appears that he has fully healed from the incident. Kirkwood caught one of two targets for 13 yards during his lone regular-season appearance in 2020 and will likely land on a practice squad during the 2021 campaign.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Early signs are positive

    The early signs on Kirkwood's condition are positive after the wideout was taken off the field on a stretcher Tuesday in the wake of a collision during practice, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    At this stage, it's uncertain how much time Kirkwood might miss, but coach Matt Rhule relayed afterward that the receiver had movement in his extremities and wasn't dealing with pain in his neck area. Kirkwood, who caught one of two targets for 13 yards during his lone regular-season appearance on 2020, is in the mix for a depth slot in the Panthers' WR corps.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Sticking in Carolina

    The Panthers re-signed Kirkwood (shoulder) to a one-year deal Monday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Kirkwood only appeared in one contest in 2020, in which he secured one of two targets for 13 yards. He spent most of the season rehabbing from a broken clavicle, which he subsequently re-injured after briefly returning to the lineup Week 6. As a rookie with the Saints back in 2018, Kirkwood had 13 grabs for 209 yards and two scores (all career-high marks) across eight games.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Designated for IR

    The Panthers placed Kirkwood (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

    Kirkwood spent the first five weeks on IR with a broken clavicle before making his season debut in this past Sunday's loss to the Bears, logging a 51 percent snap share and hauling in one of two targets for 13 yards. The 26-year-old wideout re-injured his left clavicle during the game and will be shut down until a Week 10 matchup against the Buccaneers, at the earliest.

  • Panthers' Keith Kirkwood: Makes season debut

    Kirkwood caught one of two targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Bears.

    Kirkwood made his team debut after missing Carolina's first five games with a broken collarbone. Although he only managed one catch, making minimal impact from a statistical standpoint, it's notable that Kirkwood featured for over half of the Panthers' offensive snaps, trailing only DJ Moore and Robby Anderson among wideouts.
