Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) on Friday, Dec. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 15 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen officially limited    Wed Dec 11, 03:12 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Olsen has to get cleared from the league's concussion protocol before he can play. The Panthers will not rush him back and have young tight end Ian Thomas to start (and play well) if Olsen has to miss more time.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen does solo drills    Wed Dec 11, 01:15 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) took part in individual drills Wednesday, Dec. 11, which was a moderate surprise to beat writer Joe Person.

Footballguys view: We'll have to see if Olsen can get cleared from the league's concussion protocol this week. Ian Thomas is their tight end of the future and would get a large role again if Olsen is out.

  Panthers | Cam Newton undergoes surgery    Mon Dec 9, 07:51 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) underwent Lisfranc surgery Monday, Dec. 9, according to sources. He hopes to be ready for spring workouts.

Footballguys view: Newton could be available again around March 2020, but who will he be playing for? Reports are coming out that the Panthers will try to trade their franchise quarterback this offseason. Due $18.6 million in 2020 (a good price for a quarterback), the Panthers should have quite a bit of interest.

  Panthers | Cam Newton to have surgery    Wed Dec 4, 10:29 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) plans to have surgery to repair the Lisfranc injury in his foot. Recovery time is two to three months, which will allow him to be healthy by March.

Footballguys view: It's interesting that Newton has surgery now instead of earlier this year. He tried to recover with surgery but that was not working. Newton has one year left on his contract but should be ready for offseason work in 2020.

  Panthers | Ron Rivera let go    Tue Dec 3, 03:09 PM

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera was fired Tuesday, Dec. 3. Secondary coach Perry Fewell has been named the interim head coach.

Footballguys view: The Panthers have had a new owner, David Tepper, for about a year and he wanted to go in a different direction. The team now gets a head start when it comes to searching for a new head coach. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will be shifted from his current role to special assistant to the head coach, while quarterbacks coach Scott Turner will serve as the offensive corner. Rivera should get consideration as a head coach again or at least as a defensive coordinator.
