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.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Starts preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short played 14 snaps and logged one tackle in Friday's preseason game against the Bills.

Short drew the start and assisted on a tackle on the game's fourth play. The shin injury that forced him to leave practice earlier in the week appears to be a thing of the past.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Leaves practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short left Sunday's practice after being kicked in the shin, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

While Short was forced to leave the practice field, it seems unlikely that the defensive lineman suffered a serious injury. For now, he should be considered day-to-day.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Switching positions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short is expected to shift to defensive end after the Panthers switched to a 3-4 base defense scheme this offseason, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Short has spent the last six seasons with the Panthers, suiting up almost exclusively at an interior spot during that span. The 30-year-old saw a slight dip in production last season, registering 42 tackles and three sacks in 14 games. Short's position change may improve his sack numbers, but he may have a tougher time upping his tackle count while setting the edge.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Replacement at Pro Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short went to Sunday's Pro Bowl as a replacement for Rams defensive end Aaron Donald.

Short missed the final two games of the season with a calf injury, but it seems he's healthy again. The soon-to-be 30-year-old remains under contract in 2019 with another gaudy $17 million cap hit.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Misses first games of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (calf) finished the 2018 regular season with 42 tackles (29 solo), three sacks and a forced fumble in 14 games played.

Short was rested for Carolina's final two games while nursing a calf injury, marking the first couple absences of his six-year career. Although he remained a menacing interior presence, registering a personal-best 10 stuffs this term, the veteran didn't get to the quarterback as much as usual. After two sacks Week 1, Short only managed one the rest of the season. Considering he racked up 24.5 over the prior three years, Short should be eager to get back to his best in 2019.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game at New Orleans, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short has been battling the calf issue for the last couple of weeks and will finish the season sitting out the last two games. Kyle Love and Vernon Butler should both see increased snap counts alongside Dontari Poe Sunday against the Saints.

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

Short (calf) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short was expected to play after Friday's practice but will take another week to recover. The Panthers are eliminated from the playoffs and have nothing to gain by having Short play through the injury. Vernon Butler and Kyle Love will figure to see some extra snaps while Short is out.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Unlikely to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (calf) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Falcons, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With the Panthers out of playoff contention, there's no reason for the team to rush its top defensive tackle back into the lineup. Short's having a down year with just three sacks after recording 24.5 over the previous three seasons. Expect both Vernon Butler and Kyle Love to see upticks in usage Sunday.

December 21, 2018 01:40 PM
Panthers' Kawann Short: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (calf) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Short may have received the questionable tag, but coach Ron Rivera said Friday he would "be surprised if he doesn't play." The 29-year-old played through the injury Week 15 and was on the field for 47 of 75 defensive snaps, a fairly standard workload for the defensive tackle.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Set to go Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (calf) is active for Monday night's game against the Saints, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short suffered a calf injury in practice this week and was originally listed as doubtful before being upgraded to questionable. The 29-year-old defensive tackle will look to add to his three sacks Monday night.

December 16, 2018 12:12 PM
Panthers' Kawann Short: Upgraded to questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (calf) has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Monday's game against the Saints, Max Henson of Panthers.com reports.

Head coach Ron Rivera has been optimistic regarding Short's Week 15 availability despite the defensive tackle's inability to practice heading into the weekend. Short is on track to play Monday, though Vernon Butler and Kyle Love could be in line for additional reps next to Dontari Poe.
