Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 15 vs WAS (2 / 13 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 28 / 1 rec)
Playing a bigger role than in recent weeks, Mike Tolbert came into the game much more after Cam Newton, nursing a throwing shoulder injury coming into the game, seemed to aggravate it on a hit. Tolbert played a key role in lead blocking for Jonathan Stewart's 100+-yard outing, while looking spry and fleet of foot on a handful of touches. A 12-yard gain on a screen pass showed Tolbert still has moves when called upon. He would cap off his day with a touchdown catch, sneaking into the flat with the Panthers set up at the 1-yard line. To his credit, he finished the play well, reaching out for the goal line.
2016 Week 5 vs TB (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Mike Tolbert's lone involvement as a runner came on a diving attempt to reach the goal line. The big back was met as he dove into the air and he fell awkwardly at the 1-yard line.
2016 Week 4 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)
Mike Tolbert continues to be a bit part player in this offense. Set up in the red zone, the Panthers tried getting the ball to Tolbert in space on a screen pass, but the play was instantly snuffed out.
2016 Week 3 vs MIN (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Mike Tolbert played the role of the safe check down option in a stagnant Panthers passing game that was simply outmaneuvered by the Vikings, catching a handful of short passes but making little impact overall.
2016 Week 2 vs SF (9 / 25 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Although Mike Tolbert technically took the first snap and was the 'starter' after Jonathan Stewart left the game due to injury, it was Fozzy Whittaker who assumed the lead role. Tolbert showed off good power between the tackles on some short yardage carries, and was unfortunate to have a big catch and run on a slant called back by a holding penalty.
2016 Week 1 vs DEN (2 / 6 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Mike Tolbert had no joy on his handful of touches against a stingy Broncos defense, as he was stuffed at the line of scrimmage both times. Tolbert featured as a blocking back in some offensive sets, but for the most part was limited to a bit-part role.
