  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Enjoys breakout campaign

    Luvu made 111 tackles (76 solo) and seven sacks while forcing a fumble and returning an interception for a touchdown across his 15 games in the 2022 season.

    Luvu was one of the Panthers' breakout players, dramatically increasing his production after only 43 stops in 16 games last year. The 26-year-old boasted just 7.5 career sacks prior to this season, and Luvu surpassed his previous career total of passes defended with four in 2022. Under contract with Carolina for one more year, Luvu's stock has never been higher.

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Notches another sack Week 11

    Luvu recorded 10 tackles (six solo), including one sack, during Sunday's 13-3 loss to the Ravens.

    Luvu brought down quarterback Lamar Jackson for a one-yard loss in the third quarter, marking the linebacker's fourth sack in as many weeks.

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Questionable against Falcons

    Luvu (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    Luvu sandwiched a full practice Thursday between limited sessions Wednesday and Friday. He played through the shoulder injury in the Week 7 win over Tampa Bay after sitting out a pair of games, so the starting linebacker will likely suit up against Atlanta barring a setback.

    Luvu (shoulder) will play Sunday versus Tampa Bay.

    Luvu missed Weeks 5 and 6 with a shoulder injury, but he logged two limited practice sessions this week before participating in full Friday. He should return to his starting role as Carolina's defense attempts to slow down Tom Brady and company.

  • Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Limited in practice

    Luvu (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on the Panthers' injury report Thursday.

    Luvu has been dealing with a shoulder injury since Carolina's season opener and was sidelined the past two weeks as a result. The 235-pound linebacker was a limited participant in practice last Thursday and Friday, and he once again logged back-to-back limited sessions to open Week 7. Luvu will have one more practice to improve his status before this Sunday's divisional matchup against Tampa Bay, and he should step back in as the Panthers' starting strong-side linebacker when healthy.
