Panthers' Mario Addison: Gets another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison recorded two tackles (one solo) and a sack while also forcing a fumble in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Jaguars.

Addison drove an opposing offensive lineman back into Jags quarterback Gardner Minshew, forcing a fumble that was returned 56 yards for a Panthers touchdown. Besides that valuable contribution, he also posted another sack, bringing his season total to 6.5, currently good for second in the league.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Hunting opposing QBs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison recorded four tackles, including a pair of sacks, in the Panthers' 16-10 win over Houston on Sunday.

The 32-year-old was impressive against Houston and saw a season-high 53 snaps in Week 4. The two sacks versus the Texans give Addison five quarterback takedowns over the past two weeks, making him a potentially fruitful waiver add in IDP formats.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Makes three sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison registered three sacks in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Cardinals.

Addison's stops Sunday were exclusively of the quarterback-takedown variety, and he now boasts 3.5 through three appearances this season. Following 29.5 sacks the prior three years, Addison is already off to a great start in that department in 2019.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Quiet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison logged two total tackles and half a sack in Thursday's 20-14 loss to Tampa Bay.

Addison was on the field for 49 of 60 possible defensive snaps (75 percent). The 32-year-old saw a similar workload in Week 1's loss to Los Angeles -- 48 defensive snaps -- but was unable to record a statistic in that contest. While his production doesn't quite reflect the notion, Addison remains a vital part of Carolina's linebacking corps.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Ready for regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison has played in two of the Panthers' three preseason games thus far, recording two tackles and half a sack.

Addison was rested for Carolina's exhibition opener, but shared a sack in the team's second outing. He then played 20 snaps in Thursday night's game against the Patriots, likely concluding his preseason involvement. With three straight seasons of at least nine sacks, Addison remains a critical part of the Panthers defense despite the offseason additions of veteran Bruce Irvin and rookie first-rounder Brian Burns at outside linebacker.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Paces team in sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison finished the 2018 regular season with 35 tackles (20 solo), nine sacks and two fumbles forced in 16 games played.

Addison led Carolina in sacks for the third straight season, bringing his total to 29.5 quarterback takedowns over that span. Additionally, his 35 tackles this season marked the second most of his eight-year career. At 31 years old, Addison remains under contract with the Panthers for next season, when he'll aim to keep a strong presence coming off the edge.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Listed as full participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison (shoulder) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's injury report, Joseph Person of The Athletic reports.

Addison was held out of Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury, but he's not expected to miss game action heading into Sunday's tilt against Seattle.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Addison continues to nurse a shoulder issue suffered during a Week 9 win over the Buccaneers. The veteran defensive end has not yet missed a game due to the lingering injury, but his participation in practice this week nonetheless warrants monitoring as Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks approaches.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Plays 38 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison overcame his shoulder issue to play in Week 10's loss to the Steelers, but he failed to record a tackle in 38 defensive snaps.

Addison came back to earth after exploding for three sacks the game prior. Through nine appearances this season, he sports 21 tackles (14 solo), a team-high 7.5 quarterback takedowns and two fumbles forced.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Active Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison (shoulder) is active for Thursday's game against the Steelers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Addison was a limited participant in practice all week due to a shoulder injury, but he'll suit up against the Steelers during Thursday Night Football. The starting defensive end racked up three sacks against the Buccaneers in Week 9, and he'll look to log another strong performance.

November 7, 2018 01:20 PM
Panthers' Mario Addison: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Steelers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Addison was a limited participant in practice all three days this week. The Troy product is coming off a stellar performance against the Buccaneers in Week 9, recording five total tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. If Addison misses time Thursday, Efe Obada would likely see an increase in work.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Dominant in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison recorded five tackles (three total), three sacks and one forced fumble during Sunday's 42-28 win over the Buccaneers.

Addison logged his highest sack count of the year, bringing his season total to 7.5. The starting defensive end will look to build upon his impressive sack total against the Steelers on Thursday.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Posts sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison (back) recorded two tackles (both solo), including a sack, in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

Addison was forced to leave Sunday's game early due to a back injury, and it's unclear if that will keep him out at all going forward. Through six games, Addison has 4.5 sacks, proving himself to be a consistent threat. The Panthers take on the Ravens in Week 8, though Addison is questionable to play for the time being.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Exits game with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles with a back injury, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Addison suffered a back injury during the final half of Sunday's contest and appears unlikely to retake the field. Expect an update on the defensive end's health after the Week 7 game if he is unable to return to the field.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison recorded four tackles (all solo) and a sack across 50 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

Addison now has 3.5 sacks on the season, which leads the Panthers. The defensive end also played in 71 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday, which paced the entire defensive line. He'll look to keep up his strong play Sunday at Philadelphia.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Earns another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison picked up a sack for his only tackle during Sunday's 31-21 victory over the Bengals.

Overall, the Bengals' offensive line did a nice job protecting Andy Dalton, allowing just two sacks to Addison and Efe Obada. Addison has 3.5 sacks through three games, a year after racking up a career-high 11 quarterback takedowns.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Strong play continues in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison totaled three tackles (one solo), including 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble in Sunday's 16-8 victory against Dallas.

Addison has averaged over 10 sacks per year the last two seasons and the strong run of play has continued into his age-31 season. His was one of several impressive individual performances in what was a strong day for the Panthers' defense. Addison and the rest of the unit will look to maintain momentum in next week's game against Atlanta.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Posts career high in sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison finished the 2017 regular season with 44 tackles (27 solo), 11 sacks and two forced fumbles across 16 games.

Addison set new career highs in tackles and sacks, justifying the lucrative three-year contract he signed following 27 stops and 9.5 sacks in 2016. The 30-year-old not only tied Julius Peppers for Carolina's team lead in sacks, but also placed just outside the top 10 in the NFL. After going undrafted in 2011 and playing just six games in two seasons prior to joining the Panthers, the Troy product has made a name for himself as a disruptive presence within one of the league's best defenses.

Panthers' Mario Addison: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison (hip) is active for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Addison was sidelined at practice most of the week but he'll be suiting up on Sunday. If he's at all limited, look for Wes Horton to see some added reps in relief.

December 23, 2017 05:36 PM
Panthers' Mario Addison: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Addison (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Addison did not practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he returned Friday in a limited fashion. If the hip injury keeps him sidelined in Week 16, Wes Horton could be in line to start at defensive end across from Julius Peppers.
