Gunter is in uniform and warming up for Friday's preseason matchup with Miami, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Gunter suffered a concussion last week and just recently cleared the league-mandated protocol. The team announced earlier that the cornerback would be available, but it wasn't clear at the time if he would play. Expect him to see action with the second- or third-team defense.
Gunter cleared concussion protocol and will be available for Friday's preseason game against the Dolphins, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
Gunter has been out for over a week since suffering the concussion, but he appears to no longer be showing symptoms. Assuming he is a full go, Friday night should serve as a good opportunity for Gunter to prove his worth and increase his chances of making the Panthers' final roster.
Gunter is being evaluated for a concussion after leaving Thursday's game against the Bills, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
Gunter is not a roster lock, so he'll hope to pass the league's concussion protocol in the near future to have a chance at making an impression at camp. The fourth-year cornerback recorded two solo tackles before exiting Thursday's contest.
The Panthers signed Gunter to a one-year contract Monday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
Gunter entered the offseason as a restricted free agent for the Panthers, but the team opted not to offer him a tender. The 25-year-old played four games with Carolina and one with Green Bay in 2017, failing to record a tackle. Gunter is likely to serve as a depth cornerback and special teams contributor if he is able to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.
Gunter suited up in five games for the Panthers (four) and Packers (one) in the 2017 and recorded no tackles.
Gunter was able to record one solo tackle in the wild-card game against New Orleans, but he was blanked in the regular season. In 2016, he racked up 54 tackles and 12 pass breakups as a starting corner, but his lack of speed was subsequently exposed that postseason. Consequently, he's primarily regarded as a special teams player at this point.
Gunter (illness) was not listed on the Panthers' injury report Wednesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Gunter was sidelined during the Panthers' Week 17 loss to the Falcons due to an illness, but he's slated to return for the team's wild-card tilt against the Saints on Sunday. He's slated to primarily serve on special teams, having failed to record a single defensive snap since Week 1 of the regular season.
Gunter (illness) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Gunter will end the season without playing a defensive snap for the Panthers, but he did slot in for two plays as a Packer in Week 1. He leaves behind only special teams snaps, which will be picked up by a mix of other depth secondary members.
Gunter (illness) didn't practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.
Gunter hasn't played a defensive snap since the Panthers picked him up after Week 1 and has no tackles on special teams either. With a fully healthy cornerback unit for Carolina, he'll likely be relegated to kickoff and punt coverage duty even if he manages to take the field.
The Panthers claimed Gunter off waivers Wednesday, Bill Voth of the team's official site reports.
Gunter, who was waived by Green Bay on Tuesday, is a smart corner who sees the field well, but he doesn't have the speed to make plays in the secondary. He'll work as a depth corner and special teams player in Carolina.
Gunter was waived by the Packers on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
The move was made in order to make roster room for the returning Geronimo Allison (suspension). Gunter, who spent his first two seasons in Green Bay, is a likely candidate to land on the Packers' practice squad.
Gunter finished the 2016 season with 54 tackles, two forced fumbles, and a team-high 12 passes defensed in 16 games played.
After playing just eight defensive snaps as an undrafted rookie in 2015, Gunter was in on 83.4 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps in 2016. The Packers' top-3 cornerbacks entering the season -- Sam Shields (concussion), Damarious Randall, and Quinten Rollins -- all missed time due to injury, which allowed Gunter to carve out a role as the team's top cover corner. Gunter struggled when matched up with some of the better receivers in the NFL, but he impressed at times in the large role he was thrust into. He'll be looking to build off what was a breakout campaign in 2017.
Gunter (elbow) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Gunter injured his elbow Saturday versus the Vikings and wasn't able to return to the game. However, his total participation in Wednesday's practice suggests the ailment isn't serious and, barring a setback, Gunter should be fine to play in Sunday's season finale versus the Lions.
Gunter (elbow) will not return to Saturday's game against the Vikings.
The Packers' cornerback unit took another blow Saturday with the loss of Gunter due to an elbow injury. Damorious Randall and Quinten Rollins should see most of the snaps when the Packers are in their base defense with Gunter sidelined.
Gunter (elbow) is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Vikings.
The Packers are already thin at cornerback, so Gunter's injury could loom large Saturday if he's ultimately unable to return to action. He was leading the team with four tackles prior to exiting the contest. A further update on Gunter should be made available closer to halftime.
Gunter (cramps) does not appear on the Packers' injury report Wednesday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.
Gunter experienced cramps during last week's game against the Seahawks. While he didn't return to the game, Gunter appears to have avoided any sort of injury and should be ready to play come Sunday's meeting with the Bears.
Gunter (cramps) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Seahawks, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Packers can hardly afford to lose another member of the secondary, but their sizable lead over the Seahawks lessens the impact of Gunter's absence. There is a chance that he'll be able to return Sunday, but with time winding down, it's unclear whether head coach Mike McCarthy will put him back on the field.
Gunter (illness) is active Sunday against the Seahawks.
Gunter was under the weather this week, but that won't affect his availability for Sunday's showdown with the Seahawks. He projects to be in line for a sizable role rotating in behind Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins at corner.
Gunter tallied three tackles Sunday against the Texans.
Gunter has appeared in every game this season and sits seventh on the team with 43 tackles. While his nine defended passes is tops among Green Bay defenders, injuries to key members of the Packers' secondary had propelled Gunter into an expanded role at times, allowing him to see additional playing time he likely wouldn't have had otherwise. Going forward, the Miami product could begin seeing slightly less playing time with Damarious Randall (groin) and Makinton Dorleant (hamstring) back in the fold.
