  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Another career year

    Luvu finished the regular season with 125 tackles (66 solo), including 5.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles in 17 games.

    Luvu led the Panthers in tackles, setting a new career high for the fourth straight season. Along with totaling 12.5 sacks over the past two campaigns, Luvu has also defended nine passes, with his five this term another personal best. As an unrestricted free agent this offseason, the 27-year-old could be in store for a significant salary increase.

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Underwhelms in loss

    Luvu logged five total tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Jaguars.

    Luvu was coming off back-to-back 10 tackle outings, but he was unable to replicate his recent successes in Week 17. The sixth-year linebacker has had a very productive season in Carolina, ranking first on the team in total stops (119) and second in both tackles for loss (10) and sacks (5.5). Expect Luvu and the Panthers' defense to try and end their season on a positive note in Week 18 against the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Will play Sunday

    Luvu (quadriceps) is active ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Luvu has been dealing with a quadriceps injury since the Panthers' Week 16 loss to the Packers, but it seems as if this issue won't stop him from suiting up Sunday. The 27-year-old linebacker will look to continue his stretch of recording double-digit tackles in Week 17.

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Gets questionable tag

    Luvu (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Jacksonville.

    Luvu was limited at practice Thursday and Friday, so his availability for Week 17 seems close to a coin-flip proposition. If he can't play Sunday, Kamu Grugier-Hill would probably start at linebacker.

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Misses Thursday's practice

    Luvu (quadriceps) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    Luvu seems to be in jeopardy of missing Carolina's Week 17 affair, as the 27-year-old linebacker has logged back-to-back DNPs to begin the team's week of practice. He'll almost certainly carry an injury designation into the weekend unless he's able to practice in full Friday.

    Luvu led the Panthers' linebackers in snaps (62) on his way to a 10-tackle game in Week 16, and it's not clear when he picked up the quadriceps issue. Either way, he'll likely need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance to play Sunday.
