Carolina Panthers Injury Report 9/17

Schuyler Callihan

The Carolina Panthers are barreling towards their week two clash with the high-powered Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense.

 A couple of changes were made today as Yetur Gross-Matos' injury was officially changed from just an eye injury to a concussion - he is now in concussion protocol. Defensive tackle Kawann Short missed practice Wednesday, but was able to do some work during today's practice.

Rhule gave a little insight on the two defensive lineman and it appears Gross-Matos will not play this Sunday. "We'd love to have Yetur with us, but he won't be and KK [Short is doing the best he can to get ready."

Below is a full list of today's injury report:

KK Short and Yetur Gross-Matos out would be devastating to that DLine rotation. They could've used YGM more, but they used Short a lot, even on the edge. Would put a lot of pressure on guys like Marquis Haynes and Efe Obada to produce against some pretty good offensive linemen.
