  • Panthers' Xavier Woods: Misses three games

    Woods finished the regular season with 61 tackles (39 solo), two interceptions on seven passes defended and one fumble recovery in 14 games.

    Woods missed a few weeks with a hamstring injury, yet his tackle output was still below his career average per game. On the bright side, he managed a pair of interceptions after not securing any in 2022. The 28-year-old is slated to return to the Panthers in 2024, the final year under his current contract.
