Panthers' Luke Kuechly underwent shoulder surgery after season

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly underwent surgery on his right shoulder after the season.

What It Means:

This explains why Kuechly was absent from last month's Pro Bowl. We tentatively expect him to be ready for training camp this offseason.

Kuechly recorded 125 tackles (74 solo) with 2 sacks, 3 interceptions, 5 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble, and 1 touchdown in 15 games last season.
