Cornerback Stephon Gilmore has been a member of the Panthers for a couple of weeks, but he hasn’t been on the field with his new team yet.

Gilmore was on the Patriots’ physically unable to perform list at the time of the trade and remained on it once he got to Carolina, so he’s been ineligible to practice or play for the first six weeks of the season. We’ve reached that point in the calendar and Gilmore is reportedly set to start working.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Gilmore, who tore his quad last season, is expected to practice with the team this week. Once he does practice, the team will have three weeks to activate him or shut him down for the rest of the year.

Gilmore’s long absence from the field may make it a long shot for him to play against the Giants in Week Seven, but Gilmore’s Panthers debut should be coming fairly soon.

  1. My Patriots sure could use this guy…. our pass defense is atrocious

    Good thing our genius GM got a 2057 6th rounder for one of the best CBs in the NFL

  2. Nhpats2011 it’s not like the trade was 5 years of DPOY Gilmore on a team friendly contract for a 6th. It was for 9 games of coming-off-an-injury Gilmore on a deal he wasn’t happy with, and which he might not be worth, for a 6th.
