Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Recovering from shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Missing Pro Bowl with minor undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly finished with 125 tackles (74 solo), three interceptions, 1.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble in 15 games this season.

Kuechly missed nine games over the previous two seasons due to concussions, and although his lone absence this term was for the same reason, his relatively improved health saw him total at least 40 more tackles than any of his teammates. While this season marked the first time Kuechly averaged fewer than nine tackles per game, his 125 stops still ranked tenth league-wide. Additionally, he played a hand in forcing six turnovers, tying his high mark for a campaign. Thanks to such production, the 26-year-old was named to his fifth Pro Bowl in six years since entering the league, evidencing just how dominant of a player he's become.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Best performance of season Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly posted a season-high 14 tackles (eight solo) and one sack in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

Kuechly has now has eight or more tackles in five of his last six outings, with that sort of reliable production allowing him to retain his perch as one of the top IDP options across the NFL. He'll likely have plenty of opportunities for stops in Week 15 against a Packers team that has recently discovered a consistent run game.
