  • Panthers' Matt Ioannidis: Not playing Sunday

    Ioannidis (back) is inactive Sunday against the Saints, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Ioannidis didn't practice this week, but he'll still take the field for the team's regular-season finale. The veteran's presence should be a boost for the interior of the team's defensive line against New Orleans.

  • Panthers' Matt Ioannidis: Iffy for regular-season finale

    Ioannidis (back) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Saints.

    Ioannidis didn't practice during Week 18 prep due to a back injury, but he'll still have a chance to suit up Sunday. In his first season with Carolina, the veteran defensive tackle has totaled 37 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble across 13 appearances.

    Ioannidis (calf) is active Sunday against the Seahawks, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Ioannidis was able to log a full practice Friday, but he remained questionable for the game. His return from a two-week absence is definitely good news for the inside of the Panthers defensive line.

  • Panthers' Matt Ioannidis: Logs full practice Friday

    Ioannidis (calf) was a full participant at Friday's practice session.

    After logging consecutive limited practices to open the week, Ioannidis was able to raise his participation Friday, which bodes well for his chance to play Sunday against Seattle. The defensive tackle has missed two consecutive games, and if he can't go in Week 14, Derrick Brown will continue to operate as the main disruptor on the Panthers' interior defensive line.

  • Panthers' Matt Ioannidis: Not playing again Sunday

    Ioannidis (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Ioannidis missed last Sunday's loss to the Ravens due to a calf issue he sustained Week 10 versus the Falcons, and he'll again watch from the sidelines this weekend with the same injury. In his absence, Derrick Brown, Bravvion Roy and Marquan McCall are in line to serve as Carolina's top defensive-tackle options.

  • Panthers' Matt Ioannidis: Won't play against Baltimore

    Coach Steve Wilks said Monday that Ioannidis (calf) won't play Sunday against the Ravens, Schuyler Callihan of SI.com reports.

    Ioannidis exited Thursday's win over the Falcons due to a calf injury and was seen in a walking boot after the game. While the exact nature of the issue hasn't yet been revealed, the 28-year-old will be forced to miss at least one game as a result. Marquan McCall and Bravvion Roy will likely see increased playing time in Ioannidis' absence.

    Ioannidis suffered a calf injury during Thursday's contest against the Falcons, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Ioannidis was seen in a walking boot after Thursday's game, and the severity of the injury is uncertain at this point. The defensive tackle has had a strong season thus far, having only missed one game while recording 20 tackles (seven solo) and one forced fumble.
