Panthers coach Ron Rivera admitted there's "some concern" for Ryan Kalil's (neck) availability for Week 3 against the Saints.

He's sat out both practices this week with a neck injury and doesn't seem to be making much progress. Tyler Larsen would likely fill in at center if Kalil can't get the green light.
Sep 21 - 2:52 PM

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

Kalil was not able to play against the Bills in Week 2, and he now has missed the first two practices this week. He is at best doubtful for Sunday. Tyler Larsen should get the start in his place.
Sep 21 - 12:51 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil's (neck) status is up in the air for Week 3.

Kalil couldn't get cleared for Sunday's game with Buffalo. He didn't practice Wednesday and is looking doubtful for Week 3. The good news is the Panthers don't think Kalil's neck injury is related to his 2016 shoulder issue. Tyler Larsen will make another start if Kalil is held out.
Sep 20 - 7:00 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

The Panthers have been moving Kalil slowly in his return from November surgery. He's yet to play this preseason, but is on track for the start of the season. The Panthers are counting on a healthy Kalil to anchor their interior line.
Aug 23 - 4:26 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (shoulder surgery) could miss the entire offseason program.

"He’s still in the rehab program," coach Ron Rivera said. "He’s been doing great. He’s there every day." The Panthers have been vague on a return date for their pivot man, saying only that he will be ready for Week 1. The 11th-year pro doesn't need OTAs, or even all of camp, to be ready for 2017.
Mar 2 - 5:31 PM

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.

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 (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

He also sat out Wednesday. Kalil aggravated the shoulder injury which has bothered him since Week 8 against Saints last Thursday. He is week to week.

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.

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.
Wed, Nov 16, 2016 01:42:00 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.
Tue, Nov 15, 2016 01:51:00 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.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 11:39:00 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.
