by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen sported a soft brace on his left arm Saturday, but he did not participate in the practice, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen signed a contract extension with Carolina on Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Panthers' Tyler Larsen: Questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Larsen has missed back-to-back games due to a minor foot injury, but he was able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. If Larsen is unable to play in Week 16, Greg Van Roten would likely serve as Ryan Kalil's backup at center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Larsen was listed as questionable but finished the week not practicing so this isn't overly surprising. It's the second consecutive missed game for the 26-year-old and leaves the Panthers short on offensive line depth.

Panthers' Tyler Larsen: Sports questionable designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Larsen missed last week's game due to his foot injury, but given his full participation in practice, he should be all good to go Sunday against Green Bay, barring any major setbacks.

Panthers' Tyler Larsen: Ruled out for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Larsen was unable to log a single practice throughout the week, so the Panthers have elected to keep him sidelined in Week 14. Starting center Ryan Kalil (neck) is back in the lineup, while Greg Van Roten figures to provide depth on the offensive line as well.

Panthers' Tyler Larsen: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Larsen's injury prevented him from practicing in any capacity this week, so it appears he's trending toward sitting out Sunday. Fortunately for the Panthers, starting center Ryan Kalil (neck), who is also listed as questionable, was able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week and appears likely to play. Kalil's return would lessen the Panthers' need for Larsen's services.

Panthers' Tyler Larsen: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Starting center Ryan Kalil is active for the first time in weeks, which will cut down on Larsen's snap count. However, head coach Ron Rivera wants to ease Kalil into the mix, so expect to see Larsen still snapping balls for a good chunk of Sunday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsen (foot) didn't participate during the Panthers' practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
