Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Just three stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson recorded three tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Thompson played all 61 of Carolina's defensive snaps yet failed to make a big impact on a day Tampa Bay averaged 5.5 yards per rush. Following 12 stops to open the season, Thompson will hope to bounce back from Sunday's dip in Week 3 versus the Chargers.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Hits double digits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with 12 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.

Thompson's team-leading tally included 1.5 tackles for loss. The linebacker played every defensive snap, which should be a sign of things to come as he aims to replace the retired Luke Kuechly in the heart of Carolina's scheme. That role should be plenty conducive to fantasy success, as Thompson showed Sunday.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Primed for pivotal role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is expected to fill the void in Carolina's defense left by Luke Kuechly's retirement, Shawn Krest of the North State Journal reports.

Thompson may fill Kuechly's role as the leader of Carolina's defense, but it's no guarantee that he'll fulfill the former All Pro's shoes in terms of production. Still, the 26-year-old is coming off the best statistical campaign of his career, and he looks primed to match, if not exceed, last year's 984 defensive snaps. His participation in training camp has been unhindered by last December's shoulder surgery.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Undergoes shoulder procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (foot/shoulder) had a cleanup procedure on his shoulder Thursday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Thompson is already ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Saints, so his sights are now set on getting back to health in time for offseason training. A timetable for the starting linebacker's recovery remains undisclosed, but it appears as though his procedure was minor.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Ruled out for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Perry Fewell said Thursday that Thompson (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Saints, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Thompson has missed back-to-back practice sessions to begin the week, per Steve Reed of the Associated Press, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. In his stead, Jermaine Carter will likely play another expanded role on defense.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Not likely to play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (foot) is unlikely to play Sunday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Although the Panthers didn't practice Wednesday, Thompson was estimated as a non-participant per Getzenberg. Jermaine Carter saw 64 snaps in Week 16 with the 25-year-old sidelined and could see similar playing time Sunday against the Saints.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Thompson was unable to practice this week due to the ankle issue and will miss his first game of the season. Jermaine Carter is expected to receive the start in his absence.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: DNP on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was absent from Thursday's practice, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

As we've seen in past weeks, Thompson's practice reps typically ramp up as the week progresses, so Thursday's absence shouldn't come as a surprise. That said, a limited designation would make owners far more comfortable. If the 25-year-old linebacker can't practice Friday, it's unlikely he'll be given the green light to face the Colts on Sunday. Jermaine Carter figures to take Thompson's spot if his ankle issues are too much to overcome.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: DNP on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Thompson dealt with an ankle injury during October and November, but it's unclear if this is related. While battling that issue, though, Thompson often missed Wednesday's practice but was able to elevate to full participation by Friday, so there's no real concern about his status for Sunday's game against the Colts at this time. The fifth-year pro is having a career year with 109 tackles and three sacks.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Posts six tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson logged six tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

That marks a four-game low for Thompson, who continues to add to his career-high tackle mark, which currently sits at 109. He also has three sacks on the year but none since Week 9.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Excellent outing following new deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 40-20 loss to the Falcons.

Thompson signed a four-year, $54.2 million contract extension with $28 million guaranteed Saturday, and the motor keeps on roaring with his fourth double-digit tackling performance of the season. The 2015 first-round pick has been excellent this year with 103 stops, three sacks and three pass breakups,

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Signs massive extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson signed a four-year, $54.2 million extension Saturday, including $28 million in guarantees, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It's a massive extension but it's hard to argue the inside linebacker didn't deserve it, as he's easily surpassed his career high in tackles (80) despite playing two less games. The 25-year-old has emerged as one of the best linebackers in the NFL opposite another stalwart in Luke Kuechly, and the duo is expected to remain a formidable unit for some time.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Thompson has dealt with a lingering ankle injury for multiple weeks, but he hasn't been forced to miss any time. He's set to draw his usual start in Carolina's linebacker corps against the Falcons on Sunday.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Limited on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

For the past few weeks, Thompson has been limited in practice but still has managed to play in every game. His status should be monitored over the coming days, but it appears as though Carolina is limiting Thompson's practice reps on purpose and still plans to have him available for Sunday's contest against the Falcons.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Records eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson made eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 29-21 loss to the Redskins.

Thompson trailed only Eric Reid for Carolina's team lead in stops, but he was the victim of a bulldozing stiff-arm from opposing tailback Derrius Guice during a long fourth-quarter run. That moment made Thompson look bad, but he'll at least be pleased by posting his second-best tackling total since Week 5.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Thompson began the week not practicing but put in a full practice Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 25-year-old should serve in his usual every-down role for the Panthers.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Thompson didn't practice Wednesday, so Thursday's limited session is a step in the right direction. The starting linebacker is trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against Washington, and he'll have one more opportunity to up his participation in practice.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Can't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Thompson has battled a hamstring injury since early October, but it hasn't hindered his playing time, as the fourth-year pro has played all but one snap over the past five weeks. As long as he practices in some capacity by Friday, Thompson should be ready for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Posts seven stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Saints.

Thompson trailed only Eric Reid for Carolina's team lead in tackles, and although his total Sunday was better than in weeks past, his production has still slowed over the second half of this season. In fact, after posting at least eight stops in each of the Panthers' first five games, Thompson has met that mark just once in six appearances since. That leaves him with 85 stops through 11 outings, dropping him to third on the team in tackles.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Thompson doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's tilt against the Saints, putting him on track to draw his usual start at inside linebacker. The veteran has played at least 95 percent of snaps on defense in all 11 of Carolina's games this season, and there's no reason to think his workload will lessen Week 12.
