OL - CAR
This Week Outlook
Russell Okung (calf) was unable to log any practices against this week and will not be available for Week 10's matchup against the Buccaneers.
Okung suffered a calf injury in Week 7 and has been unable to play or practice since. Mike Davis struggled Weeks 8 and 9 without Okung in the lineup and posted his two worst fantasy performances of the season as a starter in those games. Against a swarming Tampa Bay defense, Davis shouldn't be considered anything more than an RB2.
Panthers LT Russell Okung (calf) has been ruled out against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in Week 9.
Okung missed Week 8 with the same injury, and he's not ready to return to play just yet. Greg Little will continue to start in his place, protecting Teddy Bridgewater's blindside.
Panthers OL Russell Okung (calf) is doubtful for Week 9 against the Chiefs.
Okung didn't play in Week 8 and has dealt with a couple of injuries this year. It's a small downgrade for Carolina's offense.
Panthers LT Russell Okung (groin) is expected to play in Week 5 against the Falcons.
Okung hasn't played since Week 2. His groin injury has lingered for a bit now but he should be active come Sunday morning. Coach Matt Rhule said the Panthers will have backups ready to go in case Okung needs a breather.
Panthers coach Matt Rhule is "hopeful" that OL Russell Okung (groin) can play in Week 5 against the Falcons.
There's no guarantee that he can suit up for this divisional matchup, however. Okung's groin injury has lingered for a few weeks now.
