Kuechly’s surgery could put a damper on the Carolina Panthers linebacker situation. At least for a little while. I don’t think this has Carolina scrambling to fill that position. I would expect him to make a full recovery by September.
“Carolina Panthers star Luke Kuechly was playing through a partially torn labrum when he made NFL history in becoming the first player to return interceptions for touchdowns in consecutive playoff games. The All-Pro middle linebacker is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair the labrum in his left shoulder, Jonathan Jones and Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reported on Tuesdsay.” – Reported by Chris Wesseling
