49ers' Zach Kerr: Inks deal with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Kerr started in just four of his 13 appearances last season with the Panthers, but he averaged 30 defensive snaps per game nonetheless. The Delaware product recorded 32 tackles, two sacks, two pass breakups and a forced fumble in that stretch. Javon Kinlaw (knee) is locked into a starting defensive tackle role in 2021, so Kerr will compete with D.J. Jones for a starting role.

Zach Kerr: Cut by Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr was released by the Panthers on Monday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

The Panthers will free up $1.3 million in cap space by cutting the 30-year-old, who had 32 tackles (11 solo), two sacks and one forced fumble in 13 games last season. Assuming he doesn't rejoin Carolina on a lesser deal, Kerr will head to his fourth team in the past four years for 2021.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Productive with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr finished the 2020 season with 32 tackles (11 solo), two sacks and one fumble forced in 13 games.

Kerr signed a two-year deal with the Panthers last offseason and ultimately made four starts for Carolina. Despite missing three games, Kerr came two tackles shy of a new career high. He figures to remain an option alongside Derrick Brown next season.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Activated off COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr was activated off the Panthers' reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

Kerr has played in 11 games this season, including four starts, and his return to the active roster could not have come at a better time. Defensive tackle Bravvion Roy (elbow) is banged up, so Kerr has potential to see significant reps Sunday against Washington.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

It's unclear whether the 30-year-old tested positive for the virus or if he's a close contact of an infected individual. Regardless, Kerr will need to clear the COVID-19 protocols before being cleared to rejoin the active roster.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Big performance Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr finished with eight tackles (three solo), a sack and forced a fumble in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Vikings.

Kerr put together his best performance of the campaign, tying for second on the team in tackles while posting a sack for the second straight game and setting up a defensive touchdown with a strip during the third quarter. Those exploits should continue to earn Kerr more snaps going forward.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Active against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (toe) is active Week 9 against Kansas City.

Kerr was able to log full practices both Thursday and Friday, paving the way to be cleared for the matchup against the Chiefs despite missing Week 8 against Atlanta. The starting defensive tackle remains in search of his first sack of the season and isn't a high-volume tackler, but his return provides a boost to the Carolina rushing defense nonetheless.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Upgraded Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (toe) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

After missing last week's game against Atlanta with the toe issue, this is good news for Kerr considering he logged just limited practice time Wednesday. Now appearing on track to suit up in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, expect him to handle a starting role at defensive tackle.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Won't play Thursday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (toe) is inactive for Thursday night's matchup against the Falcons, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Kerr was listed as questionable coming into the day despite being unavailable to practice Tuesday, but it's now been confirmed that he will miss his first contest of 2020. The Delaware standout has fielded greater than 35 percent of the defensive workload in six of Carolina's seven games this season, leaving a sizeable role for rookie Bravvion Roy to fill in his place.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Unable to practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (toe) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice.

Kerr has dealt with the toe injury for a couple of weeks now but hasn't missed a game. However, this is the first practice that he's missed because of the injury, although that may just be a result of the shortened practice week ahead of Thursday's tilt against the Falcons. His Wednesday practice status will be more revealing, but if he's forced to miss time, rookie Bravvion Roy appears next in line to start at defensive tackle.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Ready for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (toe) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bears, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Kerr stayed on the practice field in a limited fashion all week and is good to go Sunday. He's only played more than 50 percent of the defensive snaps in one game this season, so the 30-year-old defensive tackle shouldn't be on IDP fantasy radars.

October 16, 2020 08:12 PM
Panthers' Zach Kerr: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (toe) is officially listed as questiionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Kerr is expected to serve as a starter on the interior defensive line for the rest of the season with Kawann Short (shoulder) on IR, but he has been limited in practice all week due to this toe injury. If Kerr can't go, Bravvion Roy would likely fill in alongside Derrick Brown in Carolina's 4-3 scheme.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Shakes off illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (illness) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Kerr missed some time due to an illness, but he'll be ready to go for Sunday's matchup versus the Raiders. The 30-year-old defensive tackle is in his third team in as many years, and he's expected to work in a reserve role behind Kawann Short and Derrick Brown.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Stays home with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (illness) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

At this time, there's no reason to think this is related to COVID-19. Kerr is a depth option on the Panthers' defensive line after posting 19 tackles over 12 games with Arizona last year, but he could climb the depth chart with a quick return to practice and a strong finish to camp.

Panthers' Zach Kerr: Lands in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers signed Kerr to a two-year contract Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Kerr played a reserve role along Arizona's defensive line last season, notching 19 tackles (13 solo) in 12 games. With Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe both having left Carolina in free agency, Kerr's addition provides the team with key interior depth.

Cardinals' Zach Kerr: Gearing up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kerr logged limited practices Thursday and Friday, and he's able to suit up for a seventh straight game. The 29-year-old nose tackle isn't a concern for fantasy owners, as Kerr only has seven tackles this year.

October 20, 2019 12:12 PM
Cardinals' Zach Kerr: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kerr is set for his usual depth role along Arizona's defensive front. With Corey Peters fully healthy, Kerr remains off the fantasy radar.

Cardinals' Zach Kerr: Reaches deal with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr signed with the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Kerr was cut by the Broncos in August after two years with the organization. He'll return to a familiar situation in Arizona, as Cardinals' defensive coordinator Vance Joseph was his head coach for both seasons in Denver. Kerr's depth was necessary on the Cardinals' defensive front with Zach Allen dealing with a stinger, but he likely won't be afforded a large workload if Allen gets healthy before Sunday's game versus the Bengals.

Zach Kerr: Let go by Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr was released by the Broncos on Monday, Zac Stevens of reports.

Kerr signed a two-year, $5 million deal to stick with the Broncos in March, but he was unable to maintain his roster spot. The 28-year-old had 42 tackles (25 solo) and two sacks working as a rotational defensive lineman in Denver the last two seasons.

Broncos' Zach Kerr: Re-ups with Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerr has signed a two-year deal with Denver, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Kerr has been a rotational piece all around Denver's line over the past two seasons, tallying 42 tackles and a pair of sacks. Given the presence of Derek Wolfe, Adam Gotsis and DeMarcus Walker at defensive end, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the 330-pound Kerr play the nose more where only Shelby Harris remains after the apparent departure of veteran Domata Peko. Harris should be the guy on passing downs with Harris, Kerr and likely a rookie competing for opportunities on base downs.
