Panthers placed WLB Chase Blackburn (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Blackburn has been out since sustaining a knee injury in Week 6. The 10-year veteran's season ends with just 12 tackles as the Panthers have been playing a ton of nickel this season. Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis are their nickel 'backers.

Panthers WLB Chase Blackburn (foot) is targeting Week 13 for his return.

Blackburn has ditched his cast and is now wearing a protective boot. Fifth-round rookie A.J. Klein has helped fill the void with eight tackles and one sack over the last two games.

Panthers WLB Chase Blackburn (foot) has been ruled out for Week 11.

Blackburn suffered the foot injury in Sunday's win over the 49ers and didn't practice all week. A.J. Klein will replace him in the starting lineup. The Panthers signed LB Dan Connor on Wednesday to provide depth.

Chase Blackburn will remain the Panthers starter at weak-side linebacker.

Oft-injured veteran Jon Beason has been benched and can be dropped in IDP formats. "Right now Chase has got the lead, and I think a big part of it is Chase is a little more comfortable at it right now," coach Ron Rivera said. "I think Jon's going to continue to work and get himself back to football shape." Blackburn had just two tackles when he started Week 3 against the Giants.

Panthers agreed to terms with LB Chase Blackburn, formerly of the Giants, on a two-year contract.

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman nabs a player from his old club. A Giant since 2005, Blackburn started 15 games last season, but simply isn't quick enough for a starting role. He'll serve as experienced insurance for injury-prone Thomas Davis and Jon Beason. Blackburn manned the middle for the G-Men in 2012, but won't play a snap there in Carolina provided Luke Kuechly stays healthy.

The Cowboys are interested in free agent LB Chase Blackburn.

The Giants seem to be moving on from the lead-footed soon-to-be 30-year-old Blackburn, as they are only willing to bring him back on a one-year deal at the minimum. Blackburn could compete for the strong-side job in Dallas, but he'd likely just be a backup. He started 15 games in the middle for the Giants in 2012.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 09:36:00 PM

The Giants are only willing to offer free agent MLB Chase Blackburn on a one-year deal for the league minimum salary.

Blackburn is going on 30 and struggles versus the pass. As has annually been the case since Antonio Pierce's retirement, the Giants want to upgrade at middle linebacker. Ideally, they'd bring back Blackburn to play on special teams.
Sat, Mar 9, 2013 10:35:00 PM

The Giants have expressed a desire to re-sign free agent MLB Chase Blackburn.

"Right now we are assessing his dollar value to the Giants and reviewing all possible alternatives," said agent Richard Katz. Blackburn was in a similar position two years ago when the Giants let him go, only to bring him back in November for their Super Bowl run. Blackburn will turn 30 in June. He started 15 games in 2012, recording 98 tackles and three sacks.
Sat, Feb 16, 2013 09:19:00 AM

Giants MLB Chase Blackburn was forced from Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a hamstring injury, and will not return.

Blackburn went down in a heap, and appeared to suffer a pretty significant pull. He was able to walk off under his own power, but the fact he was ruled out so quickly doesn't bode well for his Week 9 status. Mark Herzlich is now in the game at middle linebacker. Blackburn had five tackles before departing.
Sun, Oct 28, 2012 06:43:00 PM

Giants DC Perry Fewell confirms Chase Blackburn will enter camp as New York's starting middle linebacker.

"I can’t say he’ll stay there permanently, but right now Chase is our guy and no one’s clearly beaten him out for the position," Fewell said. "Chase has some distinct advantages over some of the other guys." The Giants love Blackburn's understanding of the playbook, but he'll be pushed by Mark Herzlich, Greg Jones and Keith Rivers. Blackburn's prime competition could be Rivers.
Mon, Jun 18, 2012 10:41:00 AM

Giants DC Perry Fewell indicated that Chase Blackburn will open training camp as the team's starting middle linebacker.

Fewell did say he anticipates "competition" at MIKE, naming Mark Herzlich, Greg Jones, and Keith Rivers as Blackburn's competitors. Blackburn is more of a fill-in, replacement-level middle linebacker, though he is an adequate run stuffer. It sounds like Michael Boley is staying on the weak side for now.
Sun, May 13, 2012 07:31:00 PM

Giants agreed to terms with LB Chase Blackburn on a one-year contract.

Blackburn, 29 in June, closed out last season as the Giants' starting middle linebacker. While he won't retain the role, Blackburn came up with a huge interception of Tom Brady in Super Bowl XLVI and should earn a roster spot as a backup and special teamer. He finished 2011 with 26 tackles on defense.
Fri, Apr 13, 2012 06:06:00 PM

The Giants have had "some discussions" with free agent LB Chase Blackburn about a return.

The Giants would have re-signed Blackburn by now, obviously, if they were intent on retaining him. Blackburn closed out last season as the Giants' starting middle linebacker. They want to get better at the position this year.
Mon, Apr 9, 2012 04:01:00 PM

The Giants have yet to contact free agent LB Chase Blackburn about returning in 2012.

Close to a job teaching eighth-grade math, Blackburn came to the Giants' rescue in the Super Bowl run after being signed in late November. Although Blackburn hopes to re-sign, the Giants appear to be prioritizing Jonathan Goff instead.
