Panthers at 49ers Wednesday Injury Report: Greg Little still in the protocol

The Panthers are getting a bunch of injured players back after the bye week, but not everybody is ready to hit the field just yet.

The Carolina Panthers have released their first injury report after their week off and it contains mostly good news for a previously very injured team. Donte Jackson (groin) and Trai Turner (ankle) are two big starters the team had missed for several games. Jackson is expected to be back at full speed this week, while Turner...

Panthers' Reid on playing 49ers: I don't forget

Panthers safety Eric Reid, who was not re-signed by the 49ers following the 2017 season after filing a collusion grievance against the NFL, said he's motivated to face his former team. "I just don't forget," he said.

Teams reportedly 'highly interested' in Panthers QB Cam Newton ahead of trade deadline

Despite losing their starting quarterback to an injury earlier this season, the Carolina Panthers have been on a roll with backup QB Kyle Allen, who has led the Panthers to four straight wins.  But with Cam Newton nearing a return from the foot injury that has kept him out, the Panthers have a tough decision to make at quarterback. Allen has already been named the starter for Carolina’s showdown with the unbeaten San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, but it’s unclear what the plan is after...

Report: NFL teams ‘highly interested’ in Cam Newton trade

The Carolina Panthers will trot out second-year quarterback Kyle Allen against the San Francisco 49ers next week. Former NFL MVP Cam Newton is not yet ready to return from the Lisfranc injury he suffered back in Week 2. This has not stopped other NFL teams from showing interest in Newton ahead of the Oct. 29 trade deadline. “Yes, he’s struggled with injuries the past few seasons, but I can tell you for certain that teams are highly interested in him. Still, the former MVP is revered...

Kyle Allen’s ball security will be paramount

Led by Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, and Richard Sherman, the 49ers defense is a combination of star power and the soon-to-be heralded genius of defensive coordinator Robert...

Panthers open as 5.5 point underdogs to 49ers

Photo by Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Let’s weigh in on a puzzling McCaffrey prop bet too.

I like this 5.5 points myself, so I’m jumping on that action. Let’s see if the line narrows as the week goes on. The San Francisco 49ers only put up nine points on Washington? Seems worrisome to me.

Regarding the over/under, I like the under. I can see a low scoring slugfest in the neighborhood of 20-16, which means I win regardless of who wins the game.

Check out the...

Kyle Allen favored over Cam Newton to be Panthers’ long-term QB

The 2019 NFL season has been a whirlwind as it pertains to the starting quarterbacks for many teams around the league. Many franchises, including the Carolina Panthers, have been relying on their backup quarterback due to their starters being injured. As such, oddsmakers have been busy at work. They are actually favoring Kyle Allen to be the long-term starter over Cam Newton in Carolina. Go figure. The Panthers are in absolutely no hurry to get Newton back under center while he recovers from...

The curious disappearance of Ian Thomas

Photo by Jorge Lemus/NurPhoto via Getty Images

After a surprisingly productive rookie season last year, the second-year tight end is rarely getting on the field in 2019.

Carolina Panthers second-year tight end Ian Thomas doesn’t currently have a nickname. I’d suggest “Houdini” based on his stunning disappearing act this year.

The Panthers selected Thomas in the fourth round of the 2018 draft with the intention of bringing him along slowly as Greg Olsen’s understudy. After all,...

Panthers elevate DeAndrew White to active roster, sign Braxton Miller to practice squad

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers bolstered their wide receiver depth coming out of the bye week.

The Carolina Panthers have reshuffled the bottom of their roster to add some wide receiver depth. The team announced that Natrell Jamerson will be headed to injured reserve with the ankle injury he sustained a few weeks ago. The Panthers elevated wide receiver DeAndrew White from the practice squad to fill the open roster spot.

White had two separate stints on the Panthers...

Panthers to start Kyle Allen in Week 8

Kyle Allen will make his fifth consecutive start for the Panthers next week. The second-year undrafted free agent will get the call again when the Panthers face the 49ers in San Francisco, Ron Rivera said Monday, per The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue (on Twitter). It was believed unlikely that Cam Newton would return from his foot injury this week, but Rivera’s announcement ends any speculation. The ninth-year starter will, however, work out on a side field. The Panthers. With Newton not...

Cam Newton will not make his return in Week 8

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has confirmed today that Kyle Allen will start at quarterback in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers. Much has been made of Allen’s 4-0 run this season in relief of Cam Newton. Whether you think that he is the next coming of Tom Brady or a perfectly fine back up, you can’t argue that he has played world beaters to date.

The 49ers are currently 6-0. There are...

Cam Newton once again remains out, Kyle Allen to start vs. 49ers in Week 8

The Carolina Panthers will not rush Cam Newton back into action. Head coach Ron Rivera told reporters on Monday that Kyle Allen will start in Week 8. Newton remains out of commission with a Lisfranc injury that he suffered a few weeks back and could take up to six weeks to heal. This is a critical matchup for both the San Francisco 49ers and Panthers, who are both playoff-contending teams in the NFC. For what it’s worth, it remains to be seen if Newton would even be the starter if he were...

The Carolina Panthers have ten straight weeks of football left to close out the 2019 NFL season. They are coming out of their bye week two games behind the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. They are also in the lead of the wildcard race as it stands today.
