Kuechly, who has missed 3 1/2 games this season due to a concussion, will begin preparations with his team ahead of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Kuechly, a two-time Pro Bowler, was the NFC Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. He was drafted by the Panthers in the first round of the 2012 draft out of Boston College.
Before the season, he signed a five-year, $62 million contract.
The Panthers (4–0) will travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks (2–3) on Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
