Ross (hip) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.
Ross was waived over the weekend due to an unspecified hip injury. Barring an injury settlement, the receiver is likely stuck on IR through the end of the league year.
Ross (hip) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Ross opened up training camp on the PUP but now appears to be good to go after passing his physical Tuesday. It's unclear whether Ross is going to make a full return to practice right away, but there should be an update on his status at some point this week.
Ross recently underwent hip surgery and is without a timetable to return to the field. The second-year wideout will compete for a depth role in the Panthers' crowded receiving corps once he's healthy again.
Head coach Ron Rivera said Ross (ankle) remains in rehab from offseason surgery, Hank Lee of WCNC reports.
Ross hasn't gotten much work in during spring workouts, though he's frequently been seen working with trainers on the sidelines. It isn't clear if he's expected to be back to full health in time for training camp. Regardless, the undrafted second-year receiver faces an uphill climb to winning a roster spot in Carolina.
