Panthers’ Luke Kuechly being evaluated for concussion


The Carolina Panthers are without their star linebacker, once again.


Luke Kuechly is being evaluated for a concussion. The Panthers linebacker went to the locker room late in the second quarter and did not return to the field for the start of the second half.

Kuechly had four tackles and one of Carolina’s six QB hits at the time of his exit.

Kuechly has an unfortunate history of head injuries. He missed the final six games of the 2016 season after suffering a concussion on a similar stage, a prime-time game at home. Immediately following the hit that forced the injury, Kuechly was taken off the field on a cart, crying and distraught. The linebacker also missed three games in 2015 with a concussion.

If diagnosed, it would be Kuechly’s third concussion in as many years.

Losing Kuechly, the heartbeat of and most skilled tackler on the Panthers’ defense, would be a massive blow to a unit that has found its championship form from two years ago. But for now, Kuechly’s health is the more pressing and paramount concern.
