The Panthers announced Monday that Seymour (shoulder) was cleared for their offseason training program, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Seymour spent last season on injured reserve due to double-labrum repair surgery. Now with medical clearance, he appears on track for Week 1 of the 2019 season. The 25-year-old projects to play a reserve role in Carolina's secondary.
The Panthers placed Seymour (shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday, Bill Voth of the team's official site reports.
Seymour spent last season in a reserve role with the Panthers, making 22 tackles and breaking up four passes. His shoulder injury appears serious, however, so Corn Elder will likely fill in for him.
Seymour missed practice Saturday to be with his wife for the birth of his child, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Seymour was thought to be dealing with an undisclosed injury, but actually just had some unofficial paternity leave. The 24-year-old struggled in the preseason opener but currently sits atop the Panthers' depth chart at cornerback with James Bradberry (groin).
Seymour (undisclosed) is not on the practice field Saturday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Seymour started just two contests for the Panthers last season and managed a meager 22 tackles for the club. He also struggled in his first preseason contest, which doesn't bode well considering the team listed him as a starter on the initial depth chart.
Seymour recorded 22 tackles and four pass breakups over 15 games in 2017.
Seymour, who was acquired from the Bills in early September, didn't have a great season from either a fantasy or real-life standpoint given his meager statistical production coupled with the fact he finished as Pro Football Focus' sixth-lowest graded cornerback out of 120 qualifiers. He'll look to bounce back in 2018, but won't be worthy of IDP consideration.
Seymour (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Seymour is one of several Panthers to be affected by an illness this weekend, which will keep him sidelined for the team's wild-card game. Lorenzo Doss could see additional reps at cornerback behind starters James Bradberry and Daryl Worley while Seymour remains sidelined.
The Panthers added Seymour to their injury report Saturday due to an illness, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Seymour was not the only player added to the injury report as the result of being under the weather. While the severity of the issue is not known at this time, his status will likely be determined closer to Sunday's kickoff. Lorenzo Doss would be in line for increased reps providing depth in the secondary should Seymour ultimately sit out.
Seymour was dealt to the Panthers from the Bills on Saturday in exchange for wide receiver Kaelin Clay and a seventh-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, Joe Buscaglia of 7 WKBW reports.
Seymour was going to finish third in a battle with Shareece Wright and E.J. Gaines for the vacant starting cornerback spot in Buffalo, so the Bills unloaded him for a position of greater need. He's talented enough to perhaps work his way into the nickel corner spot for the Panthers.
Seymour is recovered enough from his shoulder injury that he's expected to suit up for Thursday's preseason finale against the Lions, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
This will be the last chance for Seymour to make his case to start Week 1, as he's currently involved in a dead heat with Shareece Wright and E.J. Gaines for the open starting corner spot across from first-round rookie Tre'Davious White.
Seymour, who suffered a shoulder injury during Wednesday's practice, will miss Saturday's game in Baltimore, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
Seymour is still in the running for the second starting cornerback spot, but this will give competitors E.J. Gaines and Shareece Wright an extra chance to curry favor with coach Sean McDermott.
Seymour suffered a shoulder injury Wednesday and is considered day-to-day, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
Seymour missed time earlier this month with a foot injury as well, but the shoulder issue doesn't seem too worrisome. The 23-year-old is currently in the mix for a starting role and hopes to be ready for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.
Seymour (foot) rejoined the Bills during practice Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
If nothing else, Seymour will provide an extra body for a secondary that recently lost Ronald Darby via trade and that's missing Shareece Wright (hand) for Monday's session. Since the Bills were able to pick up E.J. Gaines from the Rams as part of their flurry of transactions Friday, it's not expected that Seymour's standing on the depth chart will dramatically change, even if Gaines isn't immediately deployed with the first team in practices. Seymour still looks set to serve as a nickel or dime back in his second NFL campaign, though it's worth noting he was working with the top unit right away Monday, meaning he'll have an important role on this defense even if he does end up as a reserve corner.
Seymour, who suffered a foot injury during a recent training camp practice, is off crutches but still in a walking boot, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.
Seymour is competing with veteran Leonard Johnson for the No. 3 cornerback role, so it'd help his cause if he could get back on the field in short time.
Seymour has a foot injury and was unable to practice Monday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Seymour is competing with veteran Leonard Johnson for the main nickelback role, while the top two corner spots appear to be locked up by Ronald Darby and rookie Tre'Davious White.
The Bills drafted cornerback Tre'Davious White -- who will presumably compete with Seymour for starting cornerback duties -- with the 27th overall pick in the draft last week.
Seymour was listed as a starting corner opposite Ronald Darby once Stephon Gilmore bolted to the Patriots, but the Bills obviously have big plans for White as they try to restock a depleted secondary. White doesn't have superstar skills even though he's expected to be a solid NFL contributor, so if he's slow to pick up the game, then Seymour could still be a Week 1 starter. And with a new coach in town, many of the starting spots are going to come down to summer performances anyway.
With Stephon Gilmore moving on to the Patriots, Seymour is currently listed as a starting corner opposite Ronald Darby, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Last year I had a nice opportunity to get my feet wet and get the understanding of what being a starter felt like," Seymour said. "Now, the opportunity is here and I'm going to take full advantage of it as much as I can and I'm definitely excited about that."
Seymour was just a sixth-round pick out of USC during last year's draft, but he quickly out-kicked the coverage in terms of slotting and now he's got a good chance to start. The Bills will probably replenish their secondary in the draft, but with wideout and safety being bigger needs, Seymour's almost certain to be the favorite to start. We'll see how he does picking up new coach Sean McDermott's defense.
Seymour is expected to start at cornerback Sunday against the Jets with regular starter Stephon Gilmore out with a concussion, BuffaloBills.com reports. "He's getting better," interim head coach Anthony Lynn said of Seymour. "It seemed like every week and even though I was on the offensive side of the ball before I became the head coach, you notice guys on the defense that stand out, and especially on scout team when they're covering your receivers, and he's done a heck of a job all year, and he's had a great week of practice so far."
Seymour is a sixth-round rookie from USC who's outperformed his draft slot, and the start shows he's bypassed a few others in the secondary. He's also started two other games this season, although with no picks in 2016 and no game with more than three tackles, he's not quite there yet from an IDP perspective.
Seymour stands a good chance of starting at cornerback for Buffalo's upcoming game in Oakland, The Buffalo News reports. "It's a big step," said the rookie from USC. "Big responsibility, filling in for Darby and being that corner the team is relying on. I'm excited for it."
Regular starter Ronald Darby has a concussion and hasn't even started practicing again, while normal backup Corey White may be needed in more of a utility role. Hence, Seymour appears likely to see the field quite a bit, and he could accrue a few tackles along the way against Oakland's passing-friendly attack.
Seymour was on the field for 40 of 73 defensive snaps in Sunday's win at Cincinnati, logging two tackles and one pass defensed.
The rookie from USC is still looking for more playing time, but his role continues to increase and he appears to have leapfrogged Nickell Robey-Coleman for the top nickel role in the defense, as Seymour offers a bit more size and physicality than Robey-Coleman.
Seymour (undisclosed) was not on the Bills' Wednesday injury report as he logged a full practice.
Seymour was forced to the sideline during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins due to an undisclosed issue, but it doesn't appear to be a problem moving forward. He'll be expected to play Sunday against the Patriots, barring any setbacks.
