• Kony Ealy - DE
    Posted 2/8/16 9:05am ET

    Carolina Panthers DE Kony Ealy tied a Super Bowl record with 3.0 sacks in a 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday, Feb. 7. He also had an interception.

    Huddle Up: Ealy was lights out for the Panthers, and had they managed to come back and win he was definitely the front runner for MVP honors.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 2/7/16 12:31pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was named the 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year on Saturday, Feb. 6.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here after a history-making 35-TD-pass, 10-rushing-TD season, and now the challenge is to become the first NFL MVP to win the Super Bowl in the same season since the Rams' Kurt Warner in 1999.

  • Mike Tolbert - RB
    Posted 2/5/16 7:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers FB Mike Tolbert (knee) practiced in full all week and is probable to face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

    Huddle Up: Tolbert is well-renowned as a fantasy vulture, but surprisingly that so much the case during the regular season as he scored only four -- one rushing and three receptions -- of the team's 59 total TDs.

  • Thomas Davis - LB
    Posted 2/5/16 7:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (forearm) is expected to start in Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Ron Rivera. 'Yes, yes I do (expect Davis to start) based on everything I'm seeing from him right now and what the doctors have talked about -- they talk about him every day and we go over everything he's done and what they're seeing. That's been a huge plus.' Rivera said. 'He actually took a shot in the arm yesterday and said 'I'm fine. That felt pretty good.''

    Huddle Up: The 32-year-old linebacker already has garnered much admiration after breaking his right arm in the NFC Championship Game, and will be an instant inspiration to his teammates on Sunday. Now the only question is how effective he'll be as a tackler.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 2/4/16 6:17pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has 22 receptions on passes thrown between 15 and 30 yards downfield in 2015 (including playoffs), the most since New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and former New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham each had 21 in 2011.

    Huddle Up: Olsen finished with career highs in targets (124) and receiving yards (1,104) and is Cam Newton's go-to- target given the team's WR question marks. Look for Newton to look his way plenty again come Sunday as consistently covering tight ends has been one of the few trouble spots this season for the Denver D.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 2/2/16 10:00am ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle), who missed practice all of last week, was back on the practice field Monday, Feb. 1.

    Huddle Up: Stewart wasn't about to miss the Super Bowl, and the extra week allows him to let his ankle injury heal heading into the season finale.

  • Jared Allen - DE
    Posted 2/2/16 5:52pm ET

    Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) has practiced very well this week and head coach Ron Rivera likes his chances of being available to play in Super Bowl 50.

    Huddle Up: Allen missed the NFC Championship Game with his foot injury, but only has had two sacks in 13 games overall since joining the Panthers in Week 4.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 2/2/16 10:15pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has a 105.6 passer rating and has posted a 39:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio in the red zone since 2014. He's thrown 26 red zone touchdowns this year without a pick. The Denver Broncos ranked 20th in red zone efficiency in 2015, with 22 touchdowns allowed in 37 red zone possessions.

    Huddle Up: Newton's red-zone passing has worked so well in large part because of the rushing threat he presents. This season he had 30 red-zone carries for 73 yards and 10 TDs -- tied for second in the league behind former teammate DeAngelo Williams (11 scores).

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 1/28/16 4:33pm ET

    The Carolina Panthers and QB Cam Newton ran the ball by design on 46 percent of their offensive plays this year, which was highest in the NFL. The Denver Broncos allowed just 3.28 yards per rush in 2015, which was the fewest in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: It's a classic strength-vs.-strength matchup that should go a long ways in determining the winner of Super Bowl 50.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 1/28/16 4:33pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest), RB Mike Tolbert (knee) and RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) were out of practice again Thursday, Jan. 28.

    Huddle Up: No worries as all are expected to practice in the coming days and be fully ready for kickoff Feb. 7.

  • Corey Brown - WR
    Posted 1/28/16 10:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (ankle) participated fully in practice Thursday, Jan. 28.

    Huddle Up: Thanks to his 86-yard catch-and-sprint scoring grab, Brown posted his first 100-yard receiving game in the NFC title tilt and could receive some favorable matchups in the Super Bowl if the Broncos key in on the likes of the Panthers' top receiving threats in TE Greg Olsen and WR Ted Ginn Jr.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 1/26/16 2:06pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was sacked four or more times twice in the 2015 season, and his numbers didn't suffer. He was 21-for-25 (84.0 percent) for 217 yards and a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans, who sacked him four times in Week 10. He was 21-for-26 (80.8 percent) for 293 yards and two touchdowns while being sacked five times in Week 17 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He didn't throw an interception in either game. The Denver Broncos, Newton's Super Bowl opponent, led the NFL with 52 sacks this season.

    Huddle Up: This will be THE matchup of Super Bowl 50, but unlike most of the QBs the Broncos have faced this season, Newton brings escapability and a dynamic running threat to the table.

  • Thomas Davis - LB
    Posted 1/26/16 10:17pm ET

    Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (forearm) is 'healing nicely,' according to head coach Ron Rivera. Davis guaranteed that he would play in Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Playing 2 weeks after a broken arm or not, few are doubting the tough-as-nails 32-year-old LB, who's already come back from three ACL tears.

  • Thomas Davis - LB
    Posted 1/24/16 10:54pm ET

    Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (arm) left in the second quarter of Sunday's NFC Championship Game on Sunday and sat out the remainder of the contest.

    Huddle Up: Davis, the Panthers' second-leading tackler, was injured trying to tackle leaping Cardinals' TE Darren Fells and later was seen in a baseball cap and a cast on his right arm on the sideline. Davis is as tough as they come, but his Super Bowl avaialbility obviously will be a huge question mark over the next 2 weeks.

  • Corey Brown - WR
    Posted 1/24/16 11:11pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown had four catches for 113 yards, including an 86-yard touchdown, in a 49-15 win over the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 24.

    Huddle Up: Thanks to the 86-yard bomb, it goes down as the first 100-yard receiving game in the two-year career for Brown, who had only 31 catches for 447 yards and four TDs during the regular season.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 1/24/16 11:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 19 of 28 passes for 335 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, and he ran 10 times for 47 yards and two touchdowns in a 49-15 win over the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 24.

    Huddle Up: Cam more than made up for one of his quietest games -- 161 passing yards, 3 rushing yards, 1 total TD last week against the Seahawks -- with a Super reminder of why he's the likely NFL and fantasy MVP of 2015.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 1/22/16 1:46pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) is probable for the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 24, against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Stewart came back strong with 106 yards and two TDs on 19 carries in the divisional-round win over the Seahawks after missing the final three regular-season games and has rushed for at least 50 yards in 16 straight contests overall, which is the NFL's longest active streak. Expect a 20-carry-plus game Sunday as the Panthers try to dominate possession and keep the ball away from the high-powered Cardinals.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 1/22/16 10:17pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton will not wear gloves in the NFC Championship Game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Jan. 24, despite the expected inclement weather. 'He's got big hands,' head coach Ron Rivera said. 'He doesn't need to.'

    Huddle Up: Come on now, one epic snowstorm isn't going to be near enough to slow down Superman a.k.a. the 2015 NFL MVP.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 1/21/16 2:07pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Jan. 21, after taking a veteran day off Wednesday, Jan. 20.

    Huddle Up: Stewart will be facing another stout run defense Sunday -- the Cards ranked sixth with 91.3 yards allowed per game -- after becoming the first opposing player to rush for more than 100 yards against the Seahawks in more than a year.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 1/21/16 11:20pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton greatly improved his passing in the second half of the regular season. From Week 9 onward, Newton completed 65.9 percent of his passes, compared to just 58.8 percent before Week 9. From Week 9 onward he also improved his yards per attempt and touchdown to interception ratio, among other things.

    Huddle Up: It all added up to a career-best 35 TD passes and a career-low 10 interceptions in the regular season for Newton, who also completed 16-of-22 passes for 162 yards a well-placed TD last week against the Seahawks. Keep riding the likely 2015 NFL MVP while he's red hot.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 1/18/16 10:36am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (upper body) said Sunday, Jan. 17, that he suffered a burner in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, but he is fine.

    Huddle Up: Olsen appeared to be in significant pain on the sidelines after suffering the injury, but he did return to action and should be available for the NFC title game.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 1/17/16 12:42pm ET

    Confirming previous reports, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) is active for the NFC divisional-round game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Stewart paced the Panthers with 989 rushing yards and six ground scores despite missing the final two games of the regular season. He also had the bye week for additional rest and should be primed to shoulder most of the load against a rugged Seahawks rushing defense.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 1/17/16 12:42pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) is active for the NFC divisional-round game against the Seattle Seahawks. Meanwhile, the Panthers have declared WR Brenton Bersin, DE Ryan Delaire, S Dean Marlowe, WR Kevin Norwood, RB Brandon Wegher, RB Fozzy Whittaker, CB Louis Young inactive.

    Huddle Up: Ginn, who hit career highs with 10 TD receptions and 16.8 yards per catch, is a big field-stretching asset for Cam Newton and Co. and will give the Legion of Boom another dimension to worry about as long as his knee proves healthy.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 1/17/16 10:32pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries in the divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Jan. 17.

    Huddle Up: Stewart returned from a three-game absence, set the tone with a 59-yard run on the first series and became the first opposing RB to top 100 yards against the Seahawks since Jamaal Charles on Nov. 16, 2014. Not a bad outing in all.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 1/15/16 10:27pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) told reporters that he plans to play in the divisional game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Jan. 17. Head coach Ron Rivera said doctors told him that Ginn should be fine, and Rivera called Ginn's rest in practice Friday, Jan. 15, as 'precautionary.'

    Huddle Up: With 44 catches for 739 yards and a career-high 10 TDs, Ginn finished as the Panthers' leading receiver and gives Cam Newton a needed downfield target. Check his status Sunday before kickoff.

  • Fozzy Whittaker - RB
    Posted 1/14/16 11:38am ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) is expected to miss the divisional round game against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Jan. 17.

    Huddle Up: With Jonathan Stewart expected to return to the Carolina lineup, the loss of Whittaker this week shouldn't be an issue for the Panthers' offense.

  • Charles Tillman - CB
    Posted 1/5/16 9:12am ET

    Carolina Panthers CB Charles Tillman (knee) has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season.

    Huddle Up: Tillman had been playing hurt, but the full tear of the ACL will knock him out of Carolina's postseason run. It's a tough loss for one of the league's top defenses.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 1/1/16 4:33pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as doubtful for the Week 17 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Ginn looks like he'll miss his first game of the year, meaning more targets for Devin Franchess, Corey Brown and Jerricho Cotchery.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 1/1/16 4:33pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) and RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and have been ruled out for the Week 17 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Rookie Cameron Artis-Payne and Mike Tolbert will handle the RB carries as Stewart will miss a third straight game.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 12/29/15 11:21pm ET

    The Carolina Panthers are hopeful that RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) can return in Week 17 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Stewart ran on a treadmill and could practice Wednesday, Dec. 30, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: See what happens this week in practice, but don't expect a full workload even if Stewart does return earlier than expected.
