Panthers LB Kuechly sits out again


The Sports Xchange

Carolina Panthers standout middle linebacker Luke Kuechly sat out Thursday’s practice and still hasn’t cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Kuechly appears to be a near-certainty to miss Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sitting out would represent his third consecutive missed game.

The Pro Bowler was injured in the season-opening game against Jacksonville. The Panthers have a bye in Week 5 so it has become a strong possibility that Kuechly won’t play again until Oct. 18 against the Seattle Seahawks.
