  • Panthers' Matt Paradis: Sets sights on training camp

    Paradis (lower leg) continues to progress "smoothly" and is hoping to be fully cleared by training camp, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Earlier this offseason, Paradis suggested he could be fully cleared in time for June minicamp, but it seems he may have jumped the gun a little bit. While there's still time for the center to make it back in full form by then, Carolina has little reason to rush the 29-year-old back into action this far ahead of Week 1.

  • Panthers' Daryl Williams: Limited participant during OTAs

    Williams (knee) is participating in individual drills during the opening days of OTAs, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Williams is recovering from surgery to repair a torn MCL and dislocated patella in his right knee, an injury he suffered in Week 1 of last season. The Panthers felt good enough about Williams' ability to rebound by signing him to a one-year extension this offseason. The veteran's to-date progress suggests he's nearing a return to the full participation.

  • Panthers' Taylor Heinicke: Taking first-team reps in OTAs

    Heinicke was the first quarterback to take reps in team drills Wednesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Heinicke served as Cam Newton's (shoulder) backup most of last season, but it was actually Kyle Allen -- who started Week 17 when both Heinicke and Newton were out -- who took the first QB reps during the opening day of OTAs on Tuesday. With third-round rookie Will Grier also in the mix, the competition for the No. 2 QB job in Carolina could be a fluid situation all offseason.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Not throwing at OTAs

    Newton (shoulder) hasn't been throwing during the first two days of OTAs, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Newton is coming off January surgery to repair his throwing shoulder after missing the final two games of the 2018 season. All reports regarding his recovery have been positive thus far, but it's not clear if Newton will be throwing much during OTAs at any point over the next three weeks. Even if he doesn't at all, Newton would still have one more chance -- the Panthers' mandatory minicamp from June 11 to 13 -- to get some live reps in before training camp.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Rehabbing leg injury

    Thomas worked out off the side during Wednesday's OTA session while recovering from a sore leg, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The injury doesn't appear to be a serious one for the tight end, who was taking part in elliptical work and didn't require a brace or boot. With the season still months away, it's not surprising that the Panthers are taking a cautious approach with Thomas. The Indiana product caught 25 of 32 targets for 246 yards and two scores over the Panthers' final five games in 2018, but he'll have a tough time replicating those results with Greg Olsen (foot) back healthy again.

  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Fully cleared from injury

    Olsen (foot) said Wednesday that he was cleared for all football activities earlier in the offseason, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The 34-year-old tight end has been battling right foot issues for the past two seasons while simultaneously contemplating retirement, but he was a full participant at OTAs on Wednesday. While his injury history is a concern heading into 2019, Olsen is currently healthy and should remain one of the Panthers' top receiving options whenever he's on the field.

  • Panthers' Mose Frazier: Suffers arm injury

    Frazier suffered a broken arm at OTAs on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    This is tough news for the 25-year-old, who saw 33 snaps in the final game of the regular season last year. The team was high on Frazier heading into last season, as he led the team in touchdowns during the preseason. Frazier will undergo a surgical repair, and his timetable for a return is unknown.
