Kuechly (shoulder) said his rehab is on schedule and he still hopes to be ready for training camp, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Kuechly missed the entire offseason program while recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. The Panthers likely will encourage a cautious timeline for him returning to practice, as the seventh-year pro has nothing to prove besides his health. Kuechly is elite in both real-life and IDP terms, but he hasn't played a 16-game season since 2014.
Kuechly (shoulder) is expected to return to practice in time for training camp, David Newton of ESPN reports.
Kuechly has been recovering from shoulder surgery the past few months and will be missing all of Carolina's offseason program. However, he isn't expected to miss a beat once training camp begins, and barring setback he should be a full go in the 2018 regular season.
Kuechly (shoulder) will continue rehab through OTAs and possibly minicamp, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Kuechly is working alongside the Panthers' training staff and Julius Peppers, who is also nursing a torn labrum on his right shoulder. Although he may not participate in offseason programs, it is still the expectation that the linebacker will be ready for the beginning of the regular season.
Kuechly, who missed the 2018 Pro Bowl due to an undisclosed injury, is recovering from right shoulder surgery, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Kuechly only missed one game in 2017 due to a concussion but popped up on the injury report ahead of the Panthers' Week 15 contest against the Packers with an undisclosed shoulder injury. However, it isn't clear if that issue is related to this recent procedure, especially since Kuechly didn't miss a single snap in any game thereafter. It isn't certain if the five-time All-Pro will be ready for offseason workouts in May.
Kuechly will miss the 2018 Pro Bowl due to a minor unspecified injury, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Kuechly's injury is not deemed to be serious. The star linebacker will therefore miss his first Pro Bowl since his sophomore season after recording 125 tackles in 2017. Given that training camp is many months away, Kuechly's injury should not affect his availability for the 2018 season.
