Panthers' Charles Johnson: Targeting Week 1 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) hopes to be ready for the start of the upcoming campaign, ESPN's David Newton reports.

Johnson has missed 10 games over the past two seasons due to hamstring injuries, which he said were closely connected to the lower-back pain he'd experienced in recent times. In fact, the 31-year-old's back problems were so bad that he was unable to get out of bed earlier this offseason. That pain resulted in Johnson undergoing a microdiscectomy in March -- a procedure he said provided him with immediate relief. Now taking part in Carolina's training camp preparations, Johnson is aiming to be ready to play by Week 1. Whenever he reenters the fold, the Panthers' depth at defensive end should allow Johnson to remain relatively fresh, but his days of approaching double-digit sacks are likely behind him now.

Panthers' Charles Johnson: Limited during OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) has been a limited participant during the Panthers' OTAs this week, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Johnson, who underwent a procedure to repair a herniated disc earlier in the offseason, is on pace for a full return at training camp. The 30-year-old doesn't have much to prove in Carolina, so the team can gradually ease him back into action if need be.

Panthers' Charles Johnson: Team not concerned about back surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Ron Rivera does not seem concerned about Johnson's (back) recent back surgery, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports. "This is one of those things that if you play football, you're gonna have this. This was just an easy fix from my understanding," Rivera said. "We're just glad that it's done and he's feeling good and doing the things he's supposed to be doing now."

Johnson recently underwent a microdisectomy to repair a herniated disc, an operation that became necessary after an epidural failed to improve his lower back pain. Although Rivera admitted he wasn't sure of Johnson's timeline for a return, the 30-year-old defensive end is expected back for training camp and should be full go for the start of the 2017 season.

Panthers' Charles Johnson: Undergoing back surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) is undergoing surgery that will keep him out of action until training camp, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

The 30-year-old, who recently signed a two-year extension, has been been dealing with back pain and will undergo a minor surgery to address the issue. Head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said of the situation, "Following the surgery, we want Charles as active as possible while still taking the proper precautions. He will be up and moving around the next day, and we will progressively bring him back." Johnson recorded 26 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and two pass deflections through 13 games last season and shows no signs of slowing down. Look for more updates on his status to come once training camp is underway.

Panthers' Charles Johnson: Signs through 2018 with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a two-year, $9.5 million contract with the Panthers on Tuesday.

Johnson, who has been with the Panthers since 2007, is not going anywhere soon. The veteran defensive end ranks second all-time for the Panthers with 67.5 sacks, and has been the team captain for three straight seasons. He could have become an unrestricted free agent, but instead opted to stick with familiar scenery. He will presumably head into 2017 as the team's starting left defensive end.
