Kyle Allen has a shoulder injury

As one Panthers quarterback who seems to always have a shoulder injury or a foot injury exits the roster (for at least eight weeks), the next man up has a shoulder injury.

New starting quarterback Kyle Allen appeared on Wednesday’s injury report as fully participating in practice with an injury to his right (throwing) shoulder.

There’s no immediate cause for concern because it didn’t limit his practice reps. However, the disclosure means that Allen is getting treatment on the shoulder — enough to trigger the placement of the injury on the report.

It’s also possible that the Panthers are being overly cautious, given that Cam Newton wasn’t listed on the injury report at all for Week One or Week Two, even though he clearly had a foot injury. The Panthers have not been punished for the potential violation of the injury report. (Last week, the Steelers and coach Mike Tomlin were fined $75,000 and $25,000, respectively, for not disclosing an elbow injury to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.)

The 5-3 Panthers face the 7-2 Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

  1. The Packers have listed Aaron with a knee injury as well the last 4 weeks, but like Allen’s shoulder it is not a reason for concern that they are on the injury report.

    The Packers are fairly healthy going into the game, but I am bit concerned that Adrian Amos may miss the game with a hamstring injury. Amos didn’t practice Wednesday and we will see how the last 2 practices of the week go.

  2. They should be giving Will Grier a look anyway. At least he has the tools to potentially be a long term answer at quarterback. No disrespect meant to Kyle, hes a great backup that can clearly get you some wins while the starter is out, but he’s not someone you can build around.

  3. No need to worry about games being fixed. Just play the insider information.

    Guess that’s what happens when you don’t pay the “integrity fee”.

    No, they have this guy named Christian McCaffrey who I feel is probably one of the best back in the league. Packers D giving up 127 on the ground and 255 in the air. This will all come down to defense and who can stop who first.
