Shark Bites

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Panthers are signing S Xavier Woods to a 3-year, $15.75 million contract. Woods spent last year starting in Minnesota after 4 years in Dallas (3 as a full-time starter). In Carolina, he'll help solidify a position that has cycled through multiple starters over HC Matt Rhule's 2 years at the helm. Woods can be a solid IDP option, but his 2021 fantasy production checked in well above any of his previous campaigns. So expect regression from last year's finish.

The Panthers will have S Xavier Woods (hamstring) back in the lineup for today's game against the Texans. It'll be his first game action since Week 3.

Panthers S Xavier Woods suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks that's expected to keep him out 4-6 weeks, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Fifth-round rookie Jammie Robinson looks like the next man up in Woods' spot. Fellow reserve Sam Franklin is in his fourth season and has five career starts, though. And perhaps Jeremy Chinn gains some playing time. We'll see how this situation plays out. The Carolina defense is already missing CB Jaycee Horn (hamstring) and could also miss CB C.J. Henderson (ankle). LB Frankie Luvu (hip) is also a question mark for Week 4. We'll see about the whole unit through the practice week.

Panthers S Xavier Woods (ankle) is active for today's game against the Steelers.

Panthers S Xavier Woods (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. We'll check his status Sunday, but Woods is a low-level IDP option.
