Panthers' James Bradberry: Records seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry made five solo tackles and two assisted tackles in Sunday's 29-3 loss to the Falcons.

After missing last week's contest with a groin injury, Bradberry made his presence known in the box score, but his seven tackles were nowhere near enough to lift Carolina to a win Sunday. In the midst of the Panthers' "so-so" season, Bradberry has played quite well, already with 42 tackles and a career-high three interceptions in nine contests in 2019. The 26-year-old cornerback certainly carries noticeable fantasy value in IDP formats, despite his team's collective struggles on defense this season.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Clear of groin issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) will play Week 11 against the Falcons, David Newton of reports.

Bradberry missed last week's loss at Green Bay due to the groin injury but practiced fully Friday and is good to go Sunday. The 26-year-old played every defensive snap this season before Week 8 when he sustained the injury, and he should return to his starting role versus Atlanta.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bradberry sat out Week 10 against the Packers due to a groin injury and was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect the fourth-year pro to draw his usual start at cornerback during Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Completes limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Bradberry didn't get onto the practice field last week until Friday, and he was ultimately inactive for this past Sunday's loss to the Packers. The fourth-year corner has started this week on a better note, and a full-speed practice would extinguish any worries about his status for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Bradberry was considered a game-time decision but won't be available in Green Bay. Ross Cockrell should start at cornerback in his place and will have a tall task Sunday against Aaron Rodgers.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Packers, David Newton of reports.

Bradberry will be a game-time decision, so the starting cornerback's availability could come down to how well he feels during warmups. If Bradberry is unable to suit up, it will be a huge blow to Carolina's secondary, especially against a passing attack led by Aaron Rodgers.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Watches practice from sidelines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Bradberry left this past Sunday's win over the Titans with a groin issue, but he revealed after the game he could've returned if necessary since it was just cramping. It may be more serious than that since Bradberry missed the first official practice of the week, but coach Ron Rivera expects Bradberry to return to work Thursday, according to Max Henson of the Panthers' official site. He's trending toward at least carrying an injury tag into Sunday's game against the Packers.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Not dealing with serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) said he experienced cramping during Sunday's 30-20 win over the Titans and could have returned to the contest if necessary, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bradberry's injury surfaced late in the game, and the Panthers had a sizable lead at the time. There was no reason to risk putting Bradberry back on the field, but his status for the Week 10 matchup against the Packers doesn't look like it's in jeopardy at this time. The Panthers may monitor his practice reps during the upcoming week.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Exits Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

It's unclear how Bradberry suffered the injury, but he exited late in the fourth quarter, so it would be a surprise to see him come back. As long as he's out, however, look for Ross Cockrell to be deployed as one of the starting cornerbacks.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Picks two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry made 10 solo tackles and intercepted two passes in Sunday's 37-26 win over the Buccaneers.

Bradberry not only led the Panthers in stops, posting double digits in the category for the first time this season, but he also defended a team-high four passes, including a couple of picks. Through six games, Bradberry now boasts 29 tackles and a career-best three interceptions from his nine total passes defended, flashing some improved playmaking on the perimeter.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Defends three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry posted five solo tackles and three defensed passes in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Jaguars.

Bradberry again played all of Carolina's defensive snaps, and with three more passes defended, he now trails only two players league-wide in the category with six overall.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Busy day versus Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry made four tackles (two solo), a sack and an interception in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Rams.

Bradberry got to Jared Goff on Los Angeles' first offensive drive, then picked the quarterback off to begin the fourth quarter. For someone who boasted five interceptions across 45 career appearances, that marked a strong start to Bradberry's contract season.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Breaks up pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry posted four tackles (three solo) and broke up a pass in Thursday night's 10-3 preseason loss to the Patriots.

Bradberry played over a third of Carolina's defensive snaps, deflecting a Tom Brady pass during his time on the field. That workload should now have Bradberry sufficiently prepared for the 2019 campaign, which is currently pegged as his last under contract with the Panthers.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Leads team in breakups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry finished the 2018 regular season with 70 tackles (58 solo), one interception on 15 passes defended, one sack and one forced fumble in 16 games played.

Bradberry started every game for Carolina for the second straight season. Although rookie cornerback Donte Jackson led the team with four interceptions, Bradberry's career-high 15 pass breakups not only paced the Panthers, but also ranked fifth league-wide. Through three seasons, the 2016 second-rounder has accumulated 214 tackles and five interceptions while being a mainstay in the secondary.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Forces two turnovers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry finished with three tackles (two solo), an interception and a forced fumble in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints.

Bradberry was a ballhawk against New Orleans' high-powered offense, picking off Drew Brees on a tipped ball during the second quarter before forcing a critical fumble out of the end zone with under two minutes left in the fourth. Although his heroics weren't enough to lead the Panthers to victory, they did give Bradberry his first two turnovers forced this season.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry recorded four tackles (three solo), a sack and a pass defensed across 62 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Bradberry was limited during practice this week due to a minor shoulder injury, but it didn't appear to hold him back at all on the field Sunday. The cornerback has now registered 53 tackles (44 solo) and 10 passes defensed on the year, but he's yet to record an interception. He'll look to change that Sunday against the Buccaneers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Panthers' James Bradberry: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bradberry apparently sustained the shoulder injury during a Week 11 loss to the Lions. The extent of his setback isn't fully known, but he would erase most of the concern about his status for Sunday's game against the Seahawks by practicing Thursday and Friday.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry (illness) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bradberry was sent home from Tuesday's practice due to an undisclosed illness but appears to have fully recovered. The third-year cornerback's Week 11 availability no longer seems to be in question, so expect Bradberry to start against the Lions on Sunday.

Panthers' James Bradberry: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradberry was sent home with an illness Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

It remains to be seen if Bradberry's illness will force him to sit out Week 11 against the Lions. but it's something to monitor as the week goes on. If Bradberry -- who recorded six tackles Sunday against the Steelers -- ends up being inactive, expect Captain Munnerlyn to see an increased workload.
