Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Dealing with lower-back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly was held out of team drills Wednesday due to tightness in his lower back, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Kuechly sat out Wednesday merely as a precaution, so this injury shouldn't be anything that inhibits him by the time training camp arrives. In fact, it wouldn't be surprising if Keuchly was back on the field in the next day or so.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Fully cleared for offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly (concussion) has been fully cleared for the start of offseason workouts, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official website reports.

Kuechly missed the final six games of last season while recovering from a concussion, though he did say he was medically cleared around Week 13 or 14, which suggests he might have played the final few games if Carolina had been in the playoff hunt. A concussion also cost him three games the previous season, but his risk for additional head injuries may not be quite as bad as it initially seems, considering he didn't have a documented history of concussion in the NFL prior to 2015. Kuechly still produced at his usual elite level on a per-game basis the past two seasons, averaging 9.6 tackles while recording five interceptions, three forced fumbles and three sacks in 23 appearances.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Will return in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly, who finished this season with 102 tackles (71 solo), two sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery, will be ready for spring practices after missing six games due to a concussion, ESPN's David Newton reports.

Kuechly was held out of Carolina's final six games after suffering his second concussion in two years in the Panthers' Week 11 contest against the Saints. Prior to then, the All-Pro linebacker averaged over 10 tackles per game, continuing to be a dominant IDP commodity. While his concussion history raises some concern over his long-term outlook, Kuechly will be back in action when the Panthers start spring practices and will look to remain healthy in 2017.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Ruled out for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly (coach's decision) won't take the field Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Despite clearing the final stage of the concussion protocol on Dec. 17, Kuechly hasn't had the ear of head coach Ron Rivera, who has remained steadfast in the decision-making process as it pertains to the All-Pro middle linebacker on game day. Wrapping up his fifth campaign with six consecutive DNPs, Kuechly still managed to reach the century mark in tackles (102, to be exact). Moreover, his playmaking was evident, as he notched six passes defended (including one interception), two sacks, and one forced fumble in 10 contests.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Inactive again in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kuechly is listed as inactive Saturday against the Falcons.

Head coach Ron Rivera (and, by proxy, the Panthers) will continue to take no risks with their top defensive player and veritable quarterback of the defense, despite being one week removed from emerging from the concussion protocol. Kuechly is thus in danger of missing the rest of the season, especially if the Panthers are officially eliminated from postseason consideration Saturday.
