Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Finishes season strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter finished the 2020 season with 46 tackles (21 solo) and one fumble recovery in 16 games played.

Carter played sparingly on defense through Carolina's first eight games but saw his role expanded during the second half of the season, when all but four of his tackles were recorded. As he now approaches the final year of his rookie contract, the former fifth-rounder will hope to maintain his starting position and corresponding production next season.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Makes eight stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter finished with eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Vikings.

Carter has posted his two highest tackling totals of the season in Carolina's last two games, sending him into the Panthers' bye week with decent momentum. Overall, the linebacker now sports 25 tackles in 12 appearances.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Starting against Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter will start at middle linebacker in Sunday's game against the Lions, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Carter has usurped Tahir Whitehead as the Panthers' starting middle linebacker. Through 10 games this year, Carter has logged just 67 snaps on defense, and Sunday's game will be an opportunity for him to lock down the starting role moving forward.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Modest production in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter notched 31 tackles (22 solo) and a half sack across 16 contests in 2019.

Carter played a depth role in Carolina's linebacker corps for the majority of the season, but he was afforded the opportunity to close out the campaign with back-to-back starts while Shaq Thompson (shoulder) was sidelined. Much of the second-year player's production came Week 17 against the Saints, during which he recorded 11 tackles (eight solo). Carter stands to fill a reserve role in 2020, so he won't be on the fantasy radar in IDP formats.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Could start Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Interim Coach Perry Fewell said Thursday that Carter will slot into the starting lineup if Shaq Thompson (ankle) is forced to miss any time, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Carter normally plays a depth role in Carolina's linebacker corps, but he could be in line to start in Indianapolis on Sunday with Thompson having missed back-to-back practices. The 2018 fifth-round pick could have limited fantasy value in deep IDP formats if Thompson indeed misses time.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Removed from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (knee) was removed from the PUP list Saturday, David Newton of reports.

Carter began training camp on the sideline as he nursed a minor knee injury, but he's already been deemed healthy enough to participate. Carter may see occasional reps with the first-team defense throughout camp if starting middle linebacker Luke Kuechly is given an intermittent veteran's day off.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter will begin camp on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list due to a knee injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

It was previously reported that Carter was fully recovered from a hamstring injury that kept him sidelined for portions of minicamp in June, but it appears he has suffered a new knee injury. Still, he is on the Active/PUP list, so he will be eligible to return to practice once his health allows it. In the meantime, the Panthers will be able to insert somebody else on their 90-man roster. Carter is expected to serve as Luke Kuechly's primary backup at middle linebacker.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Healthy for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (hamstring) is healthy for the start of training camp, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Carter appears to have made a full recovery after being sidelined for portions of minicamp in June due to a hamstring injury. The 2018 fifth-round pick played defensive snaps in three games last season (one start), logging 13 tackles (seven solo). Entering his sophomore campaign, Carter figures to serve as the primary backup to Luke Kuechly.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Not participating in minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Carter was also absent Tuesday due to hamstring pain. It's possible his absence will extend to Thursday, in which case he'll have missed minicamp entirely and will look to get back to full health in time for training camp later this summer.

Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Starting at linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter will draw his first start at linebacker in Sunday's game against the Saints.

Carter saw his first significant action of the season in last week's game against Atlanta, where he played 23 defensive snaps and recorded two tackles (one solo). He'll figure to see a much larger workload against New Orleans on Sunday while starting alongside Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis.
