  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Career low in stops

    Bell finished the regular season with 69 tackles (42 solo) and one interception on two passes defended in 13 games.

    Bell missed a few games with quadriceps and shoulder injuries, contributing toward a career low in tackles. The 29-year-old has seen his tackle total decrease in three straight seasons and offered minimal impact breaking up passes this term. Nonetheless, he remains under contract with the Panthers for the 2024 campaign, and it's unclear whether defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero will remain in charge.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Solid outing in loss

    Bell recorded seven total tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

    The 29-year-old's seven tackles Sunday brought his season total up to 63, making him Carolina's third-leading tackler while he's played just 11 games thus far. Bell has dealt with both shoulder and quadriceps issues throughout the year, but he's averaging almost six tackles per game when he's been on the field. The veteran safety and Carolina's defense will look to end the season on a positive note, with matchups against Jacksonville and Tampa Bay over the next two weeks.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Cleared to play Week 14

    Bell (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints after logging a full practice Friday.

    Bell was limited Wednesday and Thursday, but he avoided an injury designation by increasing his practice participation Friday. The starting strong safety will return from a one-game absence Sunday.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Gets back on field

    Bell (shoulder) was a limited participant during practice Wednesday.

    Bell missed the team's loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday after logging three consecutive DNPs heading into the weekend, so his return to the field is ultimately a step in the right direction. However, Bell should still be considered questionable for Week 14 against the Saints and may need to up his activity level in practice as the week goes on to increase his chances of suiting up.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Won't play at Tampa Bay

    Bell (shoulder) is listed as out for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay.

    Bell will miss his fourth game of the season in Week 13, this time due to a shoulder injury he sustained in Week 12 at Tennessee. Sam Franklin figures to start at safety in his place Sunday.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Misses practice to start week

    Bell (shoulder) did not participate at practice Wednesday.

    Bell was forced out of Sunday's loss at Tennessee early due to a shoulder injury, and he's now also sitting out to start the Panthers' new week of practice. If he can't return to practice Thursday or Friday, he'll probably end up sidelined in Week 13 at Tampa Bay.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Will not return

    Bell (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Titans, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Bell suffered the injury late in the second half and will now need to wait until Week 13 to potentially return to the field. It's not yet clear what the specifics of the Ohio State product's injuries are or if he could be looking at a longer-term absence.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Leaves with injury

    Bell has exited Sunday's game against the Titans with a shoulder injury, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Bell had three tackles before suffering the injury late in the second quarter, and he's considered questionable to return. His absence will certainly be a blow to the Panthers' secondary while he is out of the game, and Alex Cook, Sam Franklin and Jammie Robinson are all candidates to see increased snaps in his place.

  • Panthers' Vonn Bell: Solid showing in blowout loss

    Bell recorded seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 33-10 loss versus the Cowboys.

    Sunday was the fifth time in Bell's last six games where he was able to rack up six or more total tackles. His consistency as a tackler in the defensive back slot makes him a solid IDP consideration when the Panthers travel to Tennessee in Week 12.
