Luke Kuechly Remains Out With Concussion


For the third straight game, veteran linebacker Luke Kuechly will miss action due to his concussion. Head coach Ron Rivera stated Kuechly would be “good to go” if he passed the final test of the protocol. However, with no playoffs in sight, it makes no sense for Carolina to risk Kuechly’s long-term health.

Last season, Kuechly missed time due to a concussion.

The Panthers are set to kickoff against the Chargers at one eastern time.
