Panthers' Sam Franklin: All clear fo Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Bill Voth of the team's official site reports.

Franklin logged full practice time Thursday and Friday despite taking the questionable tag into Sunday's game, so this is good news for the Panthers' secondary. The Temple product will see his first game action since Week 10, so it's unclear what sort of a role he'll have in the defense for Sunday's matchup.

Panthers' Sam Franklin: All clear Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (ankle) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Franklin was a limited participant Wednesday, but as evidenced by this news, he appears on track for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Franklin has yet to play since Week 10 due to the ankle injury, so his expected return will be a boost to the defense and special teams.

Panthers' Sam Franklin: Unavailable against Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Despite practicing without limitations to start the week, Franklin is unavailable for Sunday's NFC showdown. His absence hurts Carolina's secondary depth. Myles Hartsfield appears to be the primary backup to starters Juston Burris and Tre Boston. Rookie linebacker Jeremy Chinn figures to get some work at safety in select packages, too.

Panthers' Sam Franklin: Clear of ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (ankle) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

The 24-year-old was inactive for Sunday's win over Detroit with the ankle issue, but he had no limitations at Wednesday's practice. Franklin was seeing significant snaps before suffering the injury Week 10 and could return to that role in the secondary.

Panthers' Sam Franklin: Out against Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Lions, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

The undrafted rookie out of Temple will miss the first game of his career. He's taken on more responsibility of late, as he started the last four games and posted 18 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup. Myles Hartsfield could see more reps in nickel packages with Franklin on the sidelines.

Panthers' Sam Franklin: Best game as pro
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin finished with seven tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 33-31 loss to the Chiefs.

Franklin has elevated his play since being promoted to the starting lineup in place of the injured Juston Burris (ribs), and Jeremy Chinn (knee) being sidelined Sunday afforded him even more opportunities. As a result, the rookie not only led the Panthers in tackles, but he also recorded his first career sack. That production should help his case to keep a valuable role regardless of when Burris returns.

Panthers' Sam Franklin: Set to start at safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin is expected to start at strong safety Sunday against the Saints because Juston Burris (ribs) is on injured reserve, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

The undrafted rookie out of Temple finished last week's game after Burris departed, and he posted two solo tackles. Franklin should handle a full workload as long as he holds his own, and he could have a busy day trying to slow down Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
