Panthers' Corn Elder: Still battling ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder (illness) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Elder missed Friday's practice due to the ailment and, as evidenced by this news, hasn't felt better in warmups. His absence likely won't have much impact Sunday, especially considering he's primarily used on special teams.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder missed Friday's practice due to an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Saints.

Elder's status for for Week 17 will likely depend on how he is feeling during warmups. Primarily a special teams contributor, his absence or availability is unlikely to have much of an impact.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Lands contract with Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder signed a contract with the Panthers on Monday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

The Panthers scooped Elder off the Giants' practice squad, which could be a sign that James Bradberry's groin injury is relatively serious.

Corn Elder: Parts ways with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers cut Elder on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A 2017 fifth-round pick, Elder missed his rookie season due to a knee injury and played only 61 defensive snaps across 13 games in 2018, making three tackles. He'll work to catch on in a depth capacity elsewhere in the league.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Slot cornerback reps on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder will see the opportunity to take reps in the slot this offseason, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Elder played only 61 defensive snaps across 13 games in 2018, during which time he made three tackles. He'll compete with 2018 third-round pick Rashaan Gaulden for reps in nickel packages this offseason.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Not at practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder (undisclosed) is not at Saturday's practice session, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Elder has seen reps both in the slot and outside at cornerback this preseason, eyeing some playing time during the regular season. His absence from the field Saturday marks a minor bump in the road, but the reason behind it hasn't been revealed.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Gets reps on outside
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder saw reps both in the slot and outside Thursday, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Elder looks the part of a slot corner, standing at 5-foot-10 and weighing in at 185 pounds, but he's looking to prove he can play on the outside as well. A fifth-round pick in last year's draft, Elder is striving to serve as a plug-and-play corner for Carolina in order to hang on to a depth role in the team's secondary.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Getting back to full speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Corn (knee) has participated in offseason workouts this spring but is still regaining full strength in his right knee, Tom Sorenson of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Elder is bouncing back from a stress fracture in his patella, which required surgery in October and forced the cornerback to spend his entire rookie season on injured reserve. When healthy, the 2017 fifth-rounder is expected to compete for the top nickelback job in Carolina.

Panthers' Corn Elder: On track for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder (knee) is on schedule with his recovery and expected back for Offseason Team Activities, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Elder saw his rookie year end before it started, being placed on season-ending injured reserve with a patella stress fracture ahead of Week 1. The fifth-round pick in 2017 faced stiff competition for any significant role on the defense prior to his injury. Now that he'll be back and healthy entering offseason team activities he'll have a chance to earn a roster spot and as much as a backup secondary role on the defense.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder (knee) landed on the Panthers' injured reserve Monday, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official website reports.

Elder was never considered a likely candidate to make the 53-man roster. He has been sidelined with a knee injury since early on in camp, so this move was easy to see coming. The 22-year-old will remain on the IR for the rest of the season unless he and the Panthers can reach an injury settlement.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Expected to be sidelined for extended period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder (knee) is expected to miss an extended period of time, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Elder's knee injury seems to be lingering longer than the 22-year-old can afford. Coach Ron Rivera declined to say whether Elder would play in any of the team's upcoming preseason games, which doesn't bode well for him from a job security standpoint. As it currently stands, Elder projects to function as a depth secondary player, but an extended absence from the field could move him down in the pecking order.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Nursing injured knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elder is considered week-to-week after an MRI revealed a stress fracture in his knee.

Elder practiced on the first day of training camp before complaining about soreness in his knee. He has since worked on the side with a brace on. The fifth-round pick is trying to solidify a role with the team, so it would be advantageous for him to return to the field sooner rather than later.

Panthers' Corn Elder: Headed to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers selected Elder in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 152nd overall.

Elder (5-foot-10, 183 pounds) is a small corner with modest athleticism, but he excelled in college and earns admiration for his competitiveness. In a Carolina defense that aims for aggression in the secondary, this is a sensible fit.
