Free agent OG Amini Silatolu is visiting the Bears on Wednesday.

Silatolu has made a number of visits this offseason, with the Bears being his fifth after meetings with the Seahawks, Cardinals, Chiefs, and 49ers. The former No. 40 overall pick is working his way back from a November torn ACL.
Jul 20 - 10:05 AM

Free agent OG Amini Silatolu visited the Chiefs.

Silatolu has also met with the Cardinals, Seahawks and 49ers this offseason. Recovering from a November ACL tear, Silatolu might have to wait until he is closer to full health to land a deal.
May 19 - 10:00 AM

Free agent OG Amini Silatolu is visiting the 49ers this week.

Silatolu has already visited the Cardinals and Seahawks. Coming off a November ACL tear, San Francisco may just be interested in seeing where the 2012 second-rounder is in his recovery. Silatolu has suffered two ACL tears since entering the league, managing just 34 appearances (28 starts) in four seasons.
Apr 12 - 8:36 AM

Free agent OG Amini Silatolu visited the Seahawks on Tuesday.

Silatolu is recovering from his second torn ACL in four years and has only appeared in 34-of-64 games since entering the NFL as a 2012 second-rounder. He's a power-blocking guard at 6'4/320.
Mar 16 - 9:10 AM

Free agent OG Amini Silatolu is visiting the Cardinals.

Silatolu has torn both of his ACLs since entering the league, but he is a scheme fit in Arizona as a 6-foot-4, 311-pound power blocker. Silatolu turns 28 this September. He'd be worth a flier at around the NFL minimum salary.
Mar 13 - 4:27 PM

Panthers placed OG Amini Silatolu on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

Silatolu suffered the injury in Sunday's win. Silatolu has been filling in for LG Andrew Norwell (leg), who is expected back for Carolina's Thanksgiving trip to Dallas. A 2012 second rounder, Silatolu's career has been beset by injury, including a torn right ACL in 2013. He'll be questionable for Week 1 next season. He's headed for free agency.

Panthers LG Amini Silatolu exited Week 11 against the Redskins with a knee injury.

Silatolu came up gimpy in the third quarter and did not return. He is scheduled for an MRI Monday, but he does not think the injury is serious. Chris Scott replaced Silatolu against Washington, but Andrew Norwell will man the left guard spot when healthy.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 05:56:00 PM

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton believes Amini Silatolu could win the starting left guard job in camp.

Andrew Norwell played well down the stretch last season after taking over for an injured Silatolu, but Silatolu brings more experience. Before Silatolu can unseat Norwell, he will have to prove his health. He has played just 10 games total the last two seasons.

The Panthers are not optimistic on the Week 11 status of LG Amini Silatolu (knee) and RT Nate Chandler (toe).

Coming off a game in which they allowed nine sacks, the Panthers offensive line is getting even worse. If Silatolu and Chandler can't play, the plan is to use Trai Turner at right guard, Andrew Norwell at left guard and Chris Scott at right tackle. The Falcons defense is atrocious also, but even they will be able to penetrate this line Sunday.
Thu, Nov 13, 2014 08:57:00 AM

The Panthers will be without both of their starting offensive guards in Sunday's game against Seattle.

They've ruled out LG Amini Silatolu (calf) and RG Trai Turner (knee/ankle). Jonathan Stewart will likely have trouble finding room to run against the Seahawks' elite run defense without two of his most critical interior blockers.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 01:32:00 PM

Panthers LG Amini Silatolu is headed for a Monday MRI on his calf.

Silatolu left Sunday's Week 6 tie in Cincy in the first quarter and did not return. He was spotted in a walking boot after the game. Silatolu, who blew out his knee last season, had played on all but 12 snaps through the first five weeks.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 10:33:00 AM

Panthers LG Amini Silatolu (knee) says he's "probably at 98 percent" health and should be all systems go for the start of training camp.

Silatolu blew out his knee in Week 5 last season. He's fully expected to reclaim his starting job at left guard, while rookie Trai Turner is considered the favorite at right guard. The Panthers' Week 1 projected offensive line reads: LT Byron Bell, LG Silatolu, C Ryan Kalil, RG Turner, and RT Nate Chandler.
Wed, Jun 25, 2014 10:12:00 AM

Panthers LG Amini Silatolu (ACL surgery) is doing everything except 11-on-11 work during OTAs.

Silatolu is progressing well after blowing out his right knee in Week 5 last season. The Panthers desperately need the 2012 second-round pick to be a difference-maker on their talent-deficient offensive line this season.
Thu, May 29, 2014 09:21:00 AM

Amini Silatolu (ACL surgery) is expected to reclaim his starting left guard job.

As a second-round rookie in 2012, Silatolu struggled as a pass protector while making 15 starts. Then he blew out his knee three games into the 2013 season. He'll be a question mark along with potential left tackle Byron Bell, right tackle Garry Williams and Chris Scott/Nate Chandler at right guard. The Panthers arguably have the worst offensive line in the NFL right now.
