Kuechly registered six tackles (three solo) and intercepted a pass in Monday night's 45-21 win over the Dolphins.
Kuechly's pick was a turning point in Monday's tilt, as it set up Carolina deep in enemy territory before the Panthers reeled off 21 unanswered points. Although Kuechly is yet to get a sack this season, he still sports an impressive 71 tackles and three interceptions through nine outings.
Kuechly recorded 11 tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Falcons.
Kuechly led Carolina in tackles, posting his second double-digit output of the season while doing so. Through eight games played, the swarming linebacker now sports 65 stops, two interceptions and one forced fumble.
Kuechly finished with eight tackles (six solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Buccaneers.
Kuechly was cleared to return from his latest bout with concussion-like symptoms, and certainly made his presence felt on the field Sunday. Not only did he finish second on the Panthers in tackles, but he also collected two turnovers as Carolina snapped its two-game losing streak. Although Kuechly's fumble recovery came after teammate Mike Adams coughed the ball up following an interception, Kuechly picked off Jameis Winston himself on the Buccaneers' next offensive drive. Next up for Kuechly and company is a home clash against the division-rival Falcons.
Kuechly (concussion) is active for Sunday's contest in Tampa Bay.
An independent neurologist cleared Kuechly of concussion symptoms by week's end, ensuring just one absence as a result of his most-recent head injury. He's a must-start IDP, when healthy, but his history with concussions leaves him one hit away from yet another visit to the protocol.
Kuechly cleared the concussion protocol Friday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Kuechly is listed as questionable on the final injury report, but there's no longer any doubt regarding his availability for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He was a full practice participant all week and merely needed to gain final clearance from an independent neurologist in order to play.
