Panthers' Kawann Short: Heading to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Matt Rhule said that Short (shoulder) will be placed on injured reserve Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

This transaction became inevitable once Rhule clarified Wednesday that Short would require season-ending surgery. Short earned two Pro Bowl nods over his first six years in the NFL, but given his latest setback, he will end up playing just five games between 2019 and 2020 combined. The 31-year-old missed 14 games last season due to a torn rotator cuff, and his 2020 campaign has been limited to just three appearances because of yet another shoulder injury.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Needs season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday that Short (shoulder) will require season-ending surgery, Stacey Dales of NFL Network reports.

Rhule added that Short would be placed on injured reserve, though the Panthers may wait a few days to make the transaction official. Short finishes his season with six tackles in three games, marking another abbreviated campaign for the defensive tackle after he played just two games in 2019 before undergoing another shoulder surgery in 2019. According to Dales, Short's latest health setback is to the shoulder opposite from the one that required surgery last season.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Kept out of practice by shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (shoulder) isn't practicing Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Short has already missed two weeks with a foot issue this season, and now his status for Sunday's game against the Bears appears to be in jeopardy due to a shoulder injury that he picked up in last week's win over Atlanta. If Short can't go, Zach Kerr should return to a starting role on the interior of Carolina's defensive line.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Exits game against Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (shoulder) exited Sunday's 23-16 win against the Falcons and was deemed out for the remainder of the contest, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

An injury-plagued campaign continues for the two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, as Short was also forced to sit out Weeks 2 and 3 due to a foot issue. Unfortunately, the injury woes extend back into 2019 as well, as Short missed 14 games last year because of a shoulder injury. The eight-year NFL veteran had five tackles in his two appearances heading into Sunday, but he remains without a sack on the season so far.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Full practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (foot) practiced without limitations Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short's status for Week 4 looks promising now that he's progressed from limited to full practice participation over the past two days. Injuries have been an issue for Short thus far in 2020, however, as he's already missed two games after sitting out all but two contests last year because of a partially torn rotator cuff. The two-time Pro Bowler now has a full practice session under his belt as he readies himself for an upcoming matchup against Arizona's seventh-ranked rush offense (149.7 yards per game).

Panthers' Kawann Short: Starts week with limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (foot) was limited at practice Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports, and Simmons adds that the team will evaluate how Short's foot responds Thursday to determine his potential availability for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

It sounds like Short at least has a chance to play Sunday after missing the past two games. The two-time Pro Bowler had four tackles against the Raiders when he last suited up back in Week 1.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Sitting out Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (foot) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.

The two-time Pro Bowler was doubtful coming into the weekend, but now he's officially been ruled out. This development is discouraging news for a Panthers defense that has so far permitted an NFL-worst six rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs. That weakness may become especially glaring Week 3, as Carolina takes on a Chargers team that leads the NFL with 41.5 rush attempts per game. As Short sits, Zach Kerr will pick up his fifth start since the start of 2019.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Doubtful for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Short is set to miss a second straight game due to a foot injury he appears to have sustained during Carolina's season opener. As one of the league's most reliable defensive tackles, Short's absence will again be a significant blow to the Panthers' run defense.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Won't play in Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (foot) is out for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Short returned from last year's season-ending shoulder injury to record four tackles on 63 percent snap share in a Week 1 loss to the Raiders. He apparently picked up a foot injury along the way, and he'll now be out for at least one game. Short has been one of the better defensive tackles in the NFL since the Panthers picked him in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft, so his upcoming absence could help Tampa Bay's Tom Brady and Ronald Jones. The Panthers are left with 30-year-old journeyman Zach Kerr and rookie sixth-round pick Bravvion Roy as their main options for DT snaps alongside first-round rookie Derrick Brown.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (foot) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short was held out of practice entirely to begin the week, so it's encouraging to now see him handling reps on at least a limited basis. He'll have one more chance to participate without restrictions and shed his injury tag before Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Misses practice due to foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Short racked up four tackles in his team's opener but evidently picked up a foot injury somewhere along the way. The defensive tackle will likely need to up his practice participation throughout the week if he wants to suit up against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Nearing full range of motion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short said Sunday that he's nearly regained full range of motion with his shoulder, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short underwent shoulder surgery back in October and spent the rest of the 2019 campaign on injured reserve. He managed to avoid the PUP list to kick off training camp, so Short still looks on track to make a full recovery in time to kick off Week 1. The starting defensive tackle is entering the fourth season of a five-year, $80.5 million deal.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Gearing up for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Rhule expects Short (shoulder) to be ready for training camp, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short landed on injured reserve back in early October after a shoulder injury required surgery. The timing should allow him to return healthy for the beginning of on-field activities as he enters the fourth season of a five-year, $80.5 million contract. Short averaged 50.3 tackles, 6.9 sacks and 1.8 forced fumbles per season from 2015 to 2018, playing 62 of a possible 64 games.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short will be placed on injured reserve after having season-ending shoulder surgery, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short has tried to get healthy enough to play in the last two games with a partially torn rotator cuff, but the team has decided it's in Short's best interest to "undergo surgery to fix his shoulder and focus on his rehab and get ready for next season." In his place, a rotation of Vernon Butler and Efe Obada are expected to work in at defensive end.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Won't play Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Texans, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short sat out last week's game with his shoulder injury and was considered questionable entering Sunday. Look for Vernon Butler and Efe Obada to pick up some extra snaps once again while Short is sidelined.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Texans, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Short sat out Week 3 versus the Cardinals due to a shoulder injury, but he appears to have made progress in his recovery. If the veteran defensive end is able to take the field versus Houston, he'll likely play his usual starting role.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Not ready for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (shoulder) is officially listed as inactive for Sunday's game against Arizona, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

The team was reportedly "cautiously optimistic" Short would suit up Sunday but, as evidenced by this news, he couldn't shake the injury. With Short sidelined, expect Vernon Davis to get the start at one of the defensive end spots for Sunday's contest.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

The team is "cautiously optimistic" that Short will be ready to play, according to Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer. Short has made four solo tackles through two games. If he's unable to go, expect Vernon Davis to replace him at defensive end.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Nursing shoulder soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short did not practice Wednesday due to shoulder soreness, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Short spent the second straight day of practice getting treatment, and it's unclear exactly how severe his shoulder soreness is at this point. Consider him day-to-day.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Working with trainers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (undisclosed) worked on the side with trainers during Tuesday's practice, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Short didn't have an injury before this report, so the nature of it is unclear. It's a positive sign that he's still working out in some capacity, although his practice status likely will be monitored throughout the week. If he's unable to play in Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, expect Efe Obada to see an uptick in usage.
