Haynes finished the 2020 season with 18 tackles (15 solo), four sacks, two fumble recoveries and one fumble forced in 15 games.
Haynes enjoyed the best season of his career, placing third on the Panthers in sacks. That gives him good momentum heading into the final year of his rookie contract in 2021.
Haynes (illness) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Haynes missed last week's loss to the Broncos but should return to the lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Packers. The 2018 fourth-round pick has posted 14 tackles, three sacks and a pass breakup through 12 games and isn't a relevant IDP option.
Haynes (illness) is inactive Week 14 against Denver.
Haynes did not take the practice field all week due to what was referred to as an "illness," though it appears non-COVID related considering the team did not put him on the reserve-COVID list. Yetur Gross-Matos is back from the COVID list this week, so he'll presumably serve as one of the primary backups to starters Brian Burns and Efe Obada.
Haynes (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Lions, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Haynes will avoid missing his first game of the season. The third-year defensive end has recorded three sacks, two fumble recoveries and a pass breakup through 11 games. He'll handle his typical workload as a reserve behind starters Brian Burns and Yetur Gross-Matos.
Haynes (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Lions, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.
Haynes' role has dropped off a bit with rookie Yetur Gross-Matos earning the starting defensive end role last week. He boasts occasional IDP upside, however, as he's recorded 11 tackles, three sacks and a pass breakup through 10 games this year.
Haynes (shoulder) is active Week 9 against the Chiefs.
Haynes missed a bit of practice time this week, but it won't stop him from taking the field against Kansas City. He's one of six healthy defensive ends Carolina will carry into the matchup but he still sees steady work, logging 28 or more defensive snaps in each of the last four games. He hasn't gone without a tackle in a single game this year and recorded his third sack of the season last Week against Atlanta.
Haynes (knee) is active for Thursday night's matchup against the Falcons, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.
Haynes and defensive end Efe Obada (back) were both able to overcome questionable designations to suit up Thursday night, providing valuable reinforcements to Carolina's front seven. Haynes has registered three QB hits and two sacks over the past five games, but during Week 8 he'll face an Atlanta offensive line that has surrendered more than two sacks in a game just once thus far this season.
Haynes' (knee) playing weight is up to 240 pounds, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.
The 26-year-old previously played at 235 pounds, but he's added a little weight this offseason for the Panthers' new defensive coaching staff. Haynes filled a rotational role in 11 games last season and had 12 total tackles, one sack and a fumble recovery.
Haynes (knee) won't suit up in Sunday's divisional clash versus New Orleans.
Haynes was considered doubtful from interim coach Perry Fewell heading into the clash after he was unable to practice Friday. It will be the third straight game missed for the 26-year-old, and in his absence, Christian Miller will likely continue to see expanded depth snaps in Carolina's linebacker corps.
Interim coach Perry Fewell said Friday that Haynes (knee) is "doubtful" for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Saints, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Haynes is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against New Orleans, but he didn't practice Friday and is trending in the wrong direction. If the 26-year-old is forced to miss a third straight contest, Christian Miller will likely continue to handle expanded rotational snaps in Carolina's linebacker corps.
Haynes (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
The 26-year-old didn't practice this week and will miss his second consecutive game. Christian Miller should continue to see increased snaps as a rotational outside linebacker in Haynes' absence.
Haynes (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Haynes sustained the injury during last Sunday's loss to the Falcons and was unable to practice this week. Christian Miller should see increased work as a rotational outside linebacker Week 15.
Haynes (knee) left Sunday's game against the Falcons and didn't return, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Haynes left the game in the fourth quarter, but the specifics of the injury remain unclear. Expect the team to have a report heading into next week's game against Seattle. If he's unable to go, Brian Burns would be in line to receive the bulk of the outside linebacker snaps.
Haynes (elbow) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
Haynes popped up on the injury report as questionable with his elbow injury, but it doesn't appear it was very severe. He's seen about 30 defensive snaps per week but he may get a few less in Week 4 with Bruce Irvin (hamstring) active for the first time this season.
Haynes (elbow) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Haynes is managing an elbow injury of undisclosed severity. With Bruce Irvin (hamstring) also listed as questionable, it's possible that Christian Miller and Brian Burns could receive increased rotational snaps Week 4.
Haynes (illness) is absent from Wednesday's injury report, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Haynes missed Carolina's loss to the Steelers in Week 10 due to an illness but appears to have fully recovered. The rookie fourth-round pick is on track to suit up against the Lions on Sunday and will serve a depth role behind starter Mario Addison.
Haynes will miss Week 10 against the Steelers due to an illness, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Given the nature of Haynes' unavailability, it wouldn't be surprising if he returns to the fold next week against the Lions. However, the Panthers will be down at least one member along the defensive line and could be even more shorthanded if Mario Addison (shoulder) is unable to go.
Haynes (personal) returned to practice Wednesday, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.
Haynes was inactive for the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Redskins while tending to a family matter. Now that he's back in the fold, Haynes should be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles, though he's not guaranteed to avoid an inactive status. The rookie hasn't been a major part of the Panthers' defensive line rotation this season, suiting up in just one game and playing 31 total snaps.
Haynes will not play in Sunday's matchup with the Redskins for an undisclosed reason, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Haynes' absence is non-football related, but we do not know the details. Wes Horton and Bryan Cox could see a few more snaps providing depth at defensive end in his absence.
