Aaron Ekblad (neck) will miss the Panthers' next five games.
That's Saturday's contest and the entirety of the Panthers' upcoming road trip. Ekblad has a sore neck and has been dealing with headaches. Panthers coach/GM Tom Rowe said that it's not related to Ekblad's concussion, which he was cleared of, but Rowe regrets allowing Ekblad to return from it on Tuesday. "I’m not going to lie, I wish we didn’t," Rowe said of Ekblad playing Tuesday. "That’s on me. The doctors cleared him, our medical staff cleared him but I had some reservations and I wish I stayed with my gut. That’s no one’s fault but my own." After Ekblad's latest issue, the Panthers are going to be very conservative with him. Mar 25 - 2:23 PM
