Top Jermaine Carter News

  • Chiefs' Jermaine Carter: Signing with Kansas City

    Carter is signing with the Chiefs on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Carter spent the first four seasons of his career with the Panthers, and he hasn't missed a game during that time. He racked up a career-high 88 tackles (38 solo) with a pass defense and a fumble recovery in 2021, and he should have a chance to carve out a prominent role among Kansas City's linebackers.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Makes six stops

    Carter finished with six tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Carter trailed only Myles Hartsfield in stops, with his tally including one tackle for loss. In 17 games this season, Carter had the most productive statistical campaign of his four-year career, racking up 88 tackles, including 8.5 stuffs at the line of scrimmage and recovering a fumble. The former fifth-round pick will now see what his value is as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, with it currently being unclear whether the Panthers will attempt to re-sign him.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Active for Week 17

    Carter (groin) is active for Sunday's contest against the Saints, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Carter was a limited participant in practice all week, but he will be available for the Panthers on Sunday. The middle linebacker has 76 tackles in 15 appearances this season, so his presence will be a big boost against Alvin Kamara and the Saints' offense.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: May miss Sunday

    Carter (groin) is questionable for Sunday against the Saints.

    Carter has been a limited participant in practice all week and has yet to miss a game this season. With the status of fellow starting linebackers Shaq Thompson and Haason Reddick up in the air as well, the Panthers' linebacker unit could be depleted Sunday when they face the Saints.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Secures starting role

    Coach Matt Rhule named Carter as the starting middle linebacker Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The 28-year-old recorded 46 tackles (25 solo) in 16 games for the Panthers last season, and he showed well in training camp to earn the starting spot. Denzel Perryman, who signed a two-year, $6 million deal in the spring, was traded to the Raiders on Wednesday after being beat out by Carter.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Finishes season strong

    Carter finished the 2020 season with 46 tackles (21 solo) and one fumble recovery in 16 games played.

    Carter played sparingly on defense through Carolina's first eight games but saw his role expanded during the second half of the season, when all but four of his tackles were recorded. As he now approaches the final year of his rookie contract, the former fifth-rounder will hope to maintain his starting position and corresponding production next season.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Makes eight stops

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Starting against Lions

    Carter will start at middle linebacker in Sunday's game against the Lions, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Carter has usurped Tahir Whitehead as the Panthers' starting middle linebacker. Through 10 games this year, Carter has logged just 67 snaps on defense, and Sunday's game will be an opportunity for him to lock down the starting role moving forward.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Modest production in 2019

    Carter notched 31 tackles (22 solo) and a half sack across 16 contests in 2019.

    Carter played a depth role in Carolina's linebacker corps for the majority of the season, but he was afforded the opportunity to close out the campaign with back-to-back starts while Shaq Thompson (shoulder) was sidelined. Much of the second-year player's production came Week 17 against the Saints, during which he recorded 11 tackles (eight solo). Carter stands to fill a reserve role in 2020, so he won't be on the fantasy radar in IDP formats.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Could start Week 16

    Interim Coach Perry Fewell said Thursday that Carter will slot into the starting lineup if Shaq Thompson (ankle) is forced to miss any time, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Carter normally plays a depth role in Carolina's linebacker corps, but he could be in line to start in Indianapolis on Sunday with Thompson having missed back-to-back practices. The 2018 fifth-round pick could have limited fantasy value in deep IDP formats if Thompson indeed misses time.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Removed from PUP list

    Carter (knee) was removed from the PUP list Saturday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    Carter began training camp on the sideline as he nursed a minor knee injury, but he's already been deemed healthy enough to participate. Carter may see occasional reps with the first-team defense throughout camp if starting middle linebacker Luke Kuechly is given an intermittent veteran's day off.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Healthy for camp

    Carter (hamstring) is healthy for the start of training camp, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Carter appears to have made a full recovery after being sidelined for portions of minicamp in June due to a hamstring injury. The 2018 fifth-round pick played defensive snaps in three games last season (one start), logging 13 tackles (seven solo). Entering his sophomore campaign, Carter figures to serve as the primary backup to Luke Kuechly.
