    Henderson dealt with a concussion but also missed games as a healthy scratch. The 2020 first-round pick is now slated to become an unrestricted free agent, with it unclear whether a new front office will look to retain him in Carolina.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Sitting out Sunday

    Henderson (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Packers.

    Henderson has seen his role decrease since returning from a three-week absence due to a concussion suffered in Week 9.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Will suit up at Tampa

    Henderson has cleared concussion protocol ahead of Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Henderson has been sidelined for the Panthers' last three games due to a concussion he sustained in Week 9 versus the Colts, but he's finally ready to return to action in Week 13. He projects to step in as a starter at cornerback across from Donte Jackson unless Jaycee Horn (hamstring) also comes back Sunday.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Won't play Sunday

    Henderson (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    Henderson sustained the concussion in Week 9 against the Colts. He was able to log two full practices leading up to Week 12, but he was unable to pass the league's five-step concussion protocol. Henderson will look to make his return in Week 13 against the Buccaneers in an NFC South divisional matchup.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Doubtful despite two full practices

    Henderson (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Tennessee.

    Henderson logged a full practice both Thursday and Friday, but he's unlikely to make his first appearance since Week 9 on Sunday against the Titans. The 1-9 Panthers have little reason to rush Henderson's return, but given his recent uptick in practice participation, there's a good chance he will clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol and be available in Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Getting closer to return

    Henderson (concussion) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's injury report.

    Henderson has been working his way through the league's five-step concussion protocols since he suffered the head injury in Week 9 and seems to be getting closer to gaining clearance to play again. His practice status for Friday should shed better light on whether he'll be cleared to suit up Sunday against the Titans.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Logs DNP on Thursday

    Henderson (concussion) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

    The 2020 first-round pick seems to be trending in the wrong direction to play this weekend, as he's gone from limited participation in Wednesday's practice to a DNP on Thursday. Henderson will likely carry an injury designation into Sunday, and if he's unable to suit up for the second consecutive game, Dicaprio Bootle and Troy Hill are expected to see more snaps on the Panthers' defense.

  • Panthers' CJ Henderson: Returns to practice

    Henderson (concussion) was a limited participant during practice Wednesday.

    It's a step in the right direction for Henderson, who was not able to practice last week and missed the team's game against the Bears on Thursday. However, the Florida product is still in the league's concussion protocols and will likely need to log a full practice with no setbacks before gaining clearance to play Sunday against the Cowboys.
