Van Roten signed a two-year extension with the Panthers on Monday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Van Roten was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year. The Penn product appeared in 10 games for the Dolphins last season and, while most of his playing time came on special teams, took reps at both guard and center on offense.
Van Roten (shoulder) wasn't on Wednesday's injury report and will be available for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.
Van Roten missed out of Week 7's game against the Bears, but now that he and Trai Turner (knee) are available, the Panthers' offensive line is looking up.
Van Roten (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Van Roten's shoulder injury will keep him sidelined until at least Week 8's game against the Buccaneers, while Trai Turner remains slated to start at guard per usual.
Van Roten signed a contract with the Jaguars on Monday, Jacksonville.com reports.
