Shark Bites

The Panthers have applied the franchise tag to Edge Brian Burns. That's no shock. Carolina reportedly declined sizable trade offers in the past for Burns, who will be just 26 for the 2024 season. Any team that believes the young pass rusher is worth two first-round picks could still sign him to an offer sheet in free agency. And the Panthers could still swap Burns to recoup some picks from last year's Bryce Young trade. But for now, we'll assume Burns sticks in Carolina and remains a solid-to-good IDP option.

The Panthers have ruled Edge Brian Burns (concussion) out for Thursday night's game against the Bears. That leaves Carolina with DJ Johnson and Amare Barno as basically the only two true edge players for the matchup. This isn't a situation to mine for Week 10 IDP options or a team defense.

Panthers Edge Brian Burns suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Colts. That likely means he'll miss a high-ceiling Week 10 matchup with the Bears, as players nearly always need at least the following week to pass through the concussion protocol. We'll watch for more details this week on Burns' situation, but make sure you have an IDP replacement option ready.

Panthers Edge Brian Burns is questionable after injuring an elbow during the practice week. After seeing his time limited Thursday, Burns missed Friday's practice altogether. We'll see about his status over the weekend, but make sure you have another option available.

Panthers Edge Brian Burns (ankle) and DT Derrick Brown (knee, ankle) are active for today's game against the Dolphins. Brown still looks like a risky play after a limited week of practice.

Panthers Edge Brian Burns (ankle) and DT Derrick Brown (knee, ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Burns went from a limited Wednesday to sitting out Thursday but then practice in full on Friday. That progression makes him seem likely to play. Brown went limited, no practice, limited and looks more iffy for the game. We'll check the status of both when inactives arrive Sunday morning.
