Sep 9 - 7:01 PM

Sep 7 - 11:10 AM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (sprained knee) said he "absolutely" plans to play Week 1.

Kalil will certainly do everything in his power to be ready Week 1, but players are usually too optimistic about their own recoveries. Kalil will be just over three weeks removed from spraining his knee when the regular season begins, and he has yet to resume practicing. He is questionable at best for the season opener.
Sep 4 - 6:35 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil will miss the remainder of the preseason with a sprained knee.

Kalil was forced from Saturday's preseason game. It's good news he's avoided anything serious. The Panthers are hoping Kalil will be ready come Week 1 against the Jaguars, but they're going to be cautious with the glue piece that holds the offensive line together. Brian Folkerts will man center in Kalil's absence.
Aug 24 - 6:28 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil suffered a left knee injury in Saturday's preseason game.

Kalil was immediately ruled out for the game, but the early reports are he avoided a serious injury. The Panthers can't afford to lose Kalil on an already shaky offensive line. Brian Folkerts is Kalil's backup.
Aug 22 - 8:33 PM

Panthers restructured C Ryan Kalil's contract, reducing his 2014 base salary from $4.75 million to $855,000.

The difference was converted to a "signing" bonus that will be prorated over the final three seasons of Kalil's deal. By restructuring the contracts of Kalil, SLB Thomas Davis, and RB Jonathan Stewart on Monday, GM Dave Gettleman created nearly $7.25 million in salary cap space. The Panthers are now nearly $19 million under the cap, enough to potentially franchise tag RE Greg Hardy.

The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers could be looking to restructure the contracts of C Ryan Kalil and DE Charles Johnson.

It's hardly a surprise, as Kalil and Johnson boast the two highest cap numbers for the cap-strapped Panthers. Johnson is set to count a whopping $16.42 million, with Kalil at $10.4 million. Any restructure would have to include an extended contract with a high-dollar signing bonus that could be pro-rated.

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (Lisfranc fracture) acknowledged that he could need regular maintenance on his surgically-repaired foot throughout the season.

Kalil managed to avoid opening training camp on the active/PUP list, and his "management" will likely consist largely of missed practice time. Kalil's return to action is great news for a Carolina offensive line that missed him sorely last season. Right guard and tackle are still trouble spots up front.

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (Lisfranc surgery) expects to be 100 percent for training camp.

Kalil suffered the injury in Week 5 last season, and he had surgery in the fall. He recently said that his recovery was "on track," but it had been "testing his patience." There's no need for the 28-year-old to rush back before camp.

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (Lisfranc surgery) says he is "on track" in his recovery.

Kalil says the rehab is "testing his patience." Early word in December was that Kalil was expected to be ready for OTAs, but that seems uncertain at this point. The 28-year-old suffered the injury in Week 5 last season and even if he isn't ready for OTAs, he should be all systems go for training camp.

Panthers C Ryan Kalil has restructured his contract.

Kalil's $4.75 million 2013 salary has been slashed to $750,000 after accepting a $5 million "signing bonus." His cap figure will drop from $8.6 million to $6.4 million. Recovering from Lisfranc surgery, Kalil is tentatively expected to be a full-go for the Panthers' offseason program.
Fri, Feb 15, 2013 10:40:00 AM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (Lisfranc surgery) is expected to be ready for OTAs this offseason.

"Kalil looks great, and that's exciting," said coach Ron Rivera. It's good news as Lisfranc recoveries can be tricky. Kalil will enter 2013 in the third year of a six-year, $49 million signed after the lockout.
Thu, Dec 20, 2012 07:03:00 PM

Panthers placed C Ryan Kalil on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

Kalil's injury is of the dreaded Lisfranc variety, and requires surgery. It's an enormous blow for the floundering Panthers, and thrusts their surprisingly mediocre rushing attack into further disarray. It's now going to be all the more difficult for Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams and Cam Newton to get their disappointing seasons into gear. A Pro Bowler three years running, Kalil signed a six-year, $49 million contract extension in August 2011. Lisfranc injuries are tricky, but Kalil should be ready for camp next summer. RG Geoff Hangartner will take over at center, leaving Jeff Byers and Garry Williams to rotate at right guard.
