Panthers C Ryan Kalil (injured reserve) will undergo right shoulder surgery.
Kalil's exact injury is unclear. Kalil was first injured in Week 8, then aggravated the issue in Week 11. Recovery from shoulder surgery is no picnic, but Kalil will almost certainly be ready for training camp next summer. Nov 29 - 3:54 PM

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

Backup Gino Gradkowski (knee) has also been placed on I.R. Kalil tried to play through his shoulder ailment, but his season always seemed doomed after he aggravated the issue in Week 11. Although now 31, Kalil remains one of the league's best centers. His injury is one of the reasons Carolina's offense has nearly gone off the rails. The Panthers will now try to mix and match at the pivot. Kalil is due a modest $3.5 million between salary and bonuses next season. He should be back at that price.

Panthers C Ryan Kalil left Thursday's game against the Saints with a shoulder injury, and is doubtful to return.

Kalil aggravated the injury that held him out the past two games. Not good. It's a massive loss for the Panthers' struggling offensive line. Chris Scott, who has no experience at center, is now in the game at the pivot.
Nov 17 - 10:30 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) is active for Week 11 against the Saints.

Kalil missed the past two games. Inactive for the Panthers are RB Cameron Artis-Payne, WR Brenton Bersin, C Gino Gradkowski, LT Michael Oher, DT Paul Soliai, LB A.J. Klein and S Colin Jones.

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) is questionable for Week 11 against the Saints.

It's merely a label. Kalil is fully expected back after missing Week 10 against the Chiefs. His return boosts the stocks of both Cam Newton and Jonathan Stewart. Newton is an elite QB1, while Stewart is a high-end RB2 play.
Nov 16 - 1:42 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) will return for Week 11.

Kalil missed the past two games. He will suit up against the Saints with a harness.
Nov 15 - 1:51 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) is inactive for Week 10 against the Chiefs.

The Panthers are on a short week and will host the Saints on Thursday night in Week 11. It makes more sense to hold Kalil out until then. Gino Gradkowski will start at center. Also inactive for the Panthers are LT Michael Oher (concussion), RB Cameron Artis-Payne, S Colin Jones, WLB Shaq Thompson, DT Kevin Love, and TE Chris Manhertz.
Nov 13 - 11:39 AM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 10 against the Chiefs.

This is based on beat writer Joe Person's "hunch," but it's a good bet after Kalil missed Week 9, then did very little during the practice week. The Panthers will also be without LT Michael Oher (concussion). Carolina's offensive line absences are an increasing late-week concern with Week 10 opponent Kansas City expected to get back OLB Justin Houston (knee) from the PUP list.
Nov 11 - 1:38 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

He was seen with his helmet heading to practice, but he just worked off to the side with trainers. Kalil could practice Friday and play, but it looks like he will miss his second game in a row.
Nov 10 - 11:36 AM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) is questionable for Week 9 against the Rams.

Kalil would seem to be on the doubtful side after sitting out all week, but coach Ron Rivera sounded optimistic after Friday's practice. Gino Gradkowski will get the start if Kalil cannot play.

Nov 5 - 11:41 AM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil is done for the day in Week 8 with a shoulder injury.

Kalil walked slowly to the locker room in the first half and was ruled out in the third quarter. Gino Gradkowski has taken over as Carolina's center.
Oct 30 - 3:02 PM

Panthers signed C Ryan Kalil to a two-year, $16.75 million extension through 2018.

He'll earn $13 million guaranteed. This deal, which makes Kalil one of the five highest-paid centers in football, may not have been possible if the team had kept Josh Norman under the franchise tag. 31-year-old Kalil has been one of the most reliable centers in football throughout his career and has only missed one game over the last three seasons. The Panthers now have Kalil under control for the next three years at a total of $24.5 million.
Jun 6 - 1:48 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Kalil missed Carolina's Week 8 win over the Colts, but he'll be all systems go against the Packers. His return is good news for the entire offense.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 01:09:00 PM

Panthers declared C Ryan Kalil, SLB Shaq Thompson, S Dean Marlowe, RB Brandon Wegher, WR Kevin Norwood, DT Dwan Edwards, and DE Mario Addison inactive for Monday night's Week 8 game against the Colts.

Kalil has an ankle injury and will be replaced in the starting lineup by veteran Fernando Velasco. Thompson is battling a knee issue. A.J. Klein will start in his place. Addison and Edwards have shoulder and ankle problems.
