Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

The rookie second-round pick exited last Sunday's win over the Falcons with the ankle injury and was unable to practice this week, and he'll now miss at least the next three games while on injured reserve. It's unclear if Gross-Matos is expected to be sidelined beyond the three-game minimum. Stephen Weatherly and Marquis Haynes should see increased reps for the Panthers, especially with Brian Burns in the concussion protocol.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Ankle keeps him out of practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (ankle) isn't practicing Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

The rookie second-rounder continues to be plagued by injuries, as he hurt his ankle last week against the Falcons after already battling an eye injury, concussion and illness this season. Gross-Matos is no stranger to missed practices and will hope to build up his practice participation as the week unfolds ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Leaving with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos exited Sunday's game against the Falcons with an ankle injury, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

The rookie second-round pick had only one tackle on the day before exiting the contest. Gross-Matos' status for Week 6 should receive more clarity once the Panthers return to practice Wednesday.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Gets first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos made three solo tackles and forced a fumble on a sack in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

Gross-Matos stripped opposing quarterback Kyler Murray during the third quarter, not only making his first career sack in the process, but also setting up the Panthers for a scoring drive. Although the rookie second-rounder still only played 21 of 57 defensive snaps, his key play Sunday should inspire more confidence going forward.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Sheds injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (illness) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Gross-Matos logged a DNP/DNP/LP practice slate this week while dealing with an illness, but his availability for Sunday's contest isn't in any danger. The rookie second-round pick is set to draw his usual start at defensive end.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Misses practice with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (illness) didn't practice Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Gross-Matos has had some tough luck with his health this season, as he has already battled an eye injury and a concussion prior to this illness. Whether he's able to raise his practice participation as the week unfolds should help determine the rookie second-rounder's status for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (concussion) has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will play in Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Gross-Matos fully participated in practice Thursday and Friday, and he's slated to start Sunday. The rookie second-rounder played only 16 snaps in the season opener. He should start seeing an uptick in reps moving forward as he was a skilled pass rusher at Penn State with 17 sacks and 34.5 tackles for loss over his final two seasons.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (concussion) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Even though Gross-Matos was a full participant, it still doesn't mean that he has cleared the league's concussion protocol. Per Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer, coach Matt Rhule expects Gross-Matos to play Sunday against the Chargers, but in a backup role. Look for Stephen Weatherly or Marquis Haynes to draw the start at defensive end with Gross-Matos still recovering.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Ruled out for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Gross-Matos will need more time before he's able to fully clear the league's five step-concussion protocol and retake the field. Stephen Weatherly and Marquis Haynes will likely handle increased defensive roles Sunday with Gross-Matos sidelined.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos is in the concussion protocol Thursday and will not practice, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Gross-Matos took a hit in the eye during Wednesday's practice, per Simmons, and he subsequently developed concussion symptoms. In the event that he fails to clear fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol in time to suit against the Buccaneers in Week 2, Stephen Weatherly and Marquis Haynes would be in line to handle increased roles.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Limited with eye injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gross-Matos (eye) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

It's encouraging that Gross-Matos was at least able to practice in some capacity, though the exact nature of his eye injury is unknown at this time. The rookie pass rusher will hope to make a bigger impact against Tampa Bay in Week 2 after recording only one tackle in his debut last week.

Panthers' Yetur Gross-Matos: Carolina bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers selected Gross-Matos in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 38th overall.

This is an excellent fit for Carolina as it adds another young and talented pass rusher to pair with 2019 first-rounder Brian Burns. Gross-Matos was a force at Penn State, using his length (34.88-inch arms) and explosive get-off to rack up 17.5 sacks and 35 tackles for loss over his final two seasons. Look for Gross-Matos to push Stephen Weatherly for snaps right away.
