Kawann Short To Have Season-Ending Surgery

Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short (shoulder) will have season-ending shoulder surgery for the second year in a row. Short only appeared in two games in 2019 after suffering a partially torn rotator cuff and had only played in three of five games in 2020, recording just six tackles (three solo). For a Panthers Defense that was one of the worst against the run last season, losing Short for a second straight year is more bad news. Through five games, Carolina has allowed 133.4 rushing yards per game, the eighth-most in the NFL. Consider them a very shaky streaming option in Week 6 against the Bears, with Chicago running back David Montgomery being a solid RB2 choice for fantasy managers.

Panthers Defense Without Kawann Short, Yetur Gross-Matos

The Carolina Panthers Defense has ruled out defensive tackle Kawann Short (foot) and rookie defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos (concussion) for Week 2 against the Buccaneers. A shaky Panthers defense that allowed over 30 points to the Raiders in Week 1 will be hoping that rookie defensive tackle Derrick Brown can step up against their division rivals on Sunday. Already at the bottom of the pile for fantasy defenses, Carolina should be avoided like the plague this weekend against Tom Brady and the Bucs, who are looking for their first win of the season.

Panthers Defense Loses Kawann Short For Season

The Carolina Panthers placed defensive lineman Kawann Short (shoulder) on season-ending Injured Reserve on Tuesday with a partially torn rotator cuff that he suffered in Week 2 against the Buccaneers. In a corresponding move, the team signed defensive lineman Bryan Cox from the practice squad. Short is a two-time Pro Bowler and had four tackles in two games this year. Losing the second-round pick is surely a blow to this Panthers Defense moving forward. Still, they'll be a low-end streaming option in Week 5 against a run-first Jaguars offense at home.
