Panthers bounce back, still fall short


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Panthers DST unit bounced back from a clubbing at the hands of the Eagles, but they still fell in a 19-17 loss to the Falcons in Week 11.

The Panthers held the Falcons to 346 yards of total offense in the game, but failed to make many big plays in the loss. They recorded one turnover, on a fumble, and had two sucks of quarterback Matt Ryan, en route to an 8-point Fantasy outing.

The Panthers have been up-and-down for much of the season, with four games with at least 8 Fantasy points over the last seven. They are set for a Week 12 bye, before taking on the Vikings in Week 13. 


Panthers DE Charles Johnson dealing with personal issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters that defensive end Charles Johnson has been away from the team for two days to deal with a personal matter. Johnson is visiting his ailing grandmother in a Georgia hospital.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Rivera hopes to have Johnson in the lineup Week 11 against the Falcons on Sunday.

"He's been in contact. Hopefully she'll take a turn for the good and we'll see him either later (Friday) or sometime (Saturday)," Rivera said. "He loves the Atlanta week, too. But he's obviously torn."


Panthers DT Kawann Short to remain in starting lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Panthers second-year defensive tackle Kawann Short made his first start of the season Week 8 vs. Seattle. Short, who finished with four tackles (one solo), did a good enough job that coach Ron Rivera said Monday he will continue to start at defensive tackle.

Panthers lose it late in defensive struggle


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Panthers DST unit entered Week 8 against the Seahawks scuffling, but found some success in a 13-9 loss.

The Seahawks managed just 310 yards of total offense, as the Panthers held them to just two field goals through the first 59 minutes of the game. They forced a pair of turnovers, but had just one sack of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the loss.

The Panthers have struggled with consistency this season, but have still reached double figures in Fantasy points in four of seven games. They will try to keep it going in Week 9, with a tough matchup on the way against the Saints.  


Panthers' Bene Benwikere expected to get starting nickel job back


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Panthers cornerback Bene Benwikere is expected to get his starting job back at the nickel once he's fully recovered from an ankle injury, the Associated Press reports. Benwikere was inactive Sunday against the Packers and has not played since Week 5 against the Bears.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera disagrees with Luke Kuechly's ejection


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters he didn't agree with the explanation given to him regarding linebacker Luke Kuechly's ejection on Sunday, per the team's official website. Kuechly was tossed for contacting an official after posting a team-high eight tackles in a Week 8 defeat.

"The kid reacted to somebody grabbing him by the neck and pulling him out of the pile," Rivera said. "Then somebody grabbed him by the waist. Well, the guy who grabbed him by the waist just happened to be the ref. That's why he reacted; he thought another player was coming into grab him."


Panthers provide little resistance vs. Packers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Panthers defensive struggles continued in Week 7 against the Packers, a 38-17 loss.

The Panthers provided little resistance in the game, as the Packers went up 21-0 in the first quarter. The Panthers allowed just 363 yards of total offense, though that number probably could have been higher if the Packers needed to keep scoring. Carolina's defense failed to record a turnover in the game, while sacking Aaron Rodgers just twice.

The defense was a strength for the Panthers last year, but the DST unit has struggled mightily recently. They have reached double figures in Fantasy points in just three of their last four games heading into Week 8 against the Seahawks. 


Panthers' Luke Kuechly gets tossed for contacting official


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was ejected Sunday afternoon against Packers in Week 7 for contacting an official. The ejection took place in the third quarter. He finished the game with eight total tackles (seven solo).

Report: Panthers CB Josh Norman a healthy scratch Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Panthers cornerback Josh Norman was a healthy scratch on Sunday against Green Bay, according to the Charlotte Observer. The decision was not made because of the concussion he suffered in Week 5. Melvin White will start in his place against the Packers.

Panthers DST struggles in overtime game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) Coming off an impressive performance Week 5 against Chicago in which they had four sacks, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and a defensive touchdown, the Panthers weren't nearly as sharp defensively Week 6 at Cincinnati. In a game that went five quarters, ending in a tie, they allowed 37 points on 513 yards.

They were lacking in big plays, too. They had another two interceptions but only one sack, no fumble recoveries and, as you might expect, no defensive touchdowns.

That Week 5 performance is looking more like the exception than the rule for the Panthers DST, one of the more inconsistent options at the position this year. The Panthers have allowed 37 or more points in three of their last four games, recording a combined two sacks between them.

Though the Panthers DST has some upside, it's only worth using with the right matchup. Clearly, it doesn't have that Week 7 at Green Bay.


Panthers' Bene Benwikere unlikely to play at Green Bay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Panthers rookie nickel cornerback Bene Benwikere will likely miss Sunday's game against the Packers in Week 7 because of an ankle injury, per the Associated Press on Monday. Benwikere suffered the injury Week 5 against Chicago and missed Week 6 against Cincinnati. He's registered eight tackles this season.

Panthers list Week 6 inactives


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Panthers quarterback Joe Webb, cornerback Josh Norman, cornerback Bene Benwikere, linebacker D.J. Smith and guard Andrew Norwell were among the team's inactives Week 6 at Cincinnati.

Panthers' Josh Norman suffered concussion Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Panthers head coach Ron Rivera told reporters on Monday that cornerback Josh Norman suffered a concussion in a Week 5 win over the Bears, the Associated Press reports. Norman, who has 10 tackles on the season, will have to pass the league's concussion protocol before he is cleared to return.

The Panthers will face the Bengals in Cincinnati in Week 6.


Panthers rookie CB Bene Benwikere dealing with ankle injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Panthers rookie cornerback Bene Benwikere left Week 5 with an ankle injury, according to the Associated Press. Head coach Ron Rivera declined to comment on his status moving forward to Week 6 at Cincinnati. Benwikere has registered eight tackles (seven solo) on the season.

Panthers steps up in comeback win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Panthers defense buckled down after a slow start Sunday, and they got some solid contributions from the special teams unit in a 31-24 win over the Bears in Week 5.  

The Panthers opened scoring with a 79-yard punt return touchdown by Philly Brown in the first quarter, the start of a game filled with big plays. Though the Bears rolled to three first-half touchdowns, the Panthers held them to a single field goal in the second half, while racking up four turnovers and four sacks in the win.

The Panthers DST unit has had its ups and downs this season, but they enter Week 6 against the Bengals allowing 24.0 points per game.  


Panthers DE Charles Johnson expected to play Week 5


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he was not concerned after defensive end Charles Johnson missed another practice Thursday due to a hip injury. Johnson is expected back at practice Friday and expected to play Week 5 vs. Chicago.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera announced Monday cornerback Josh Norman will start Week 5 against the Bears alongside Antonie Cason. Norman will be replacing Melvin White in the starting lineup at cornerback.

Charles Johnson plays through hip flexor injury Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said defensive end Charles Johnson was slowed by a hip flexor Sunday against the Ravens, but he was able to play through the injury. Johnson recorded no stats in a 38-10 loss.

Another clunker for Panthers DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) For the second straight game, the Panthers couldn't come through on the defensive side of the ball Week 4 at Baltimore, allowing 38 points on 454 yards. They allowed 37 points on 454 yards to the visiting Steelers last week.

But at least they had a sack then. They couldn't muster even one of those against the Ravens. They also went without a turnover for the second straight game.

The Panthers DST was one of the top units in Fantasy last season and started out that way this season, but it's clearly slumping right now. It has another tough test Week 5 against the Bears, so you may want to look into alternatives.


Jonathan Stewart among Panthers inactives Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Panthers quarterback Joe Webb, running back Jonathan Stewart, safety Tre Boston, running back Fozzy Whittaker, linebacker Thomas Davis, offensive lineman Andrew Norwell and tight end Brandon Williams were ruled inactive Week 4 at Baltimore.

Panthers DST gets steamrolled


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) After opening the season with two strong performances, the Panthers DST got run over Week 3 by the Steelers. Carolina allowed a whopping 264 rushing yards and 454 total yards in the 37-19 loss. Pittsburgh averaged 7.8 yards per carry.

Carolina mustered one sack, by defensive end Mario Addison, and zero turnovers. The Panthers DST will try to bounce back Week 4 at Baltimore.


Derek Anderson plays well in relief


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Panthers quarterback Derek Anderson relieved Cam Newton in the fourth quarter of the Week 3 loss to the Steelers and played well. Anderson completed 5 of 6 throws for 80 yards, including a 35-yard touchdown to rookie wideout Kelvin Benjamin.

Anderson will go back to the bench for Week 4 at Baltimore.


Panthers defense in good shape for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014)  The Panthers listed three players from the defensive side of the ball on the injury report for Week 3 against the Steelers, but are expected to have all of them available for Sunday's game.

Defensive linemen Colin Cole (non-injury related) and Dwan Edwards (back), as well as linebacker Thomas Davis (hip) are all probable for Week 3. 


Greg Hardy will practice this week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera made it clear during his Monday press conference defensive end Greg Hardy, who was deactivated Sunday against the Lions, will practice and attend team meetings this week. However, Rivera added Hardy's status for Week 3 against the Steelers has not yet been decided.
