  • Panthers' Brian Burns: Leads team in sacks

    Burns finished the regular season with 50 tackles (32 solo), including eight sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 16 games.

    Burns has now notched at least 7.5 sacks in each of his five NFL seasons, leading the Panthers in the category in consecutive campaigns. However, with Burns slated to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, it remains to be seen whether he'll return to Carolina or sign a lucrative long-term deal elsewhere.

  • Panthers' Brian Burns: Still bothered by injury

    Burns (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Burns missed practice last Wednesday too, due to an ankle injury, before ultimately ramping up his activity level Thursday and then playing in Sunday's win over the Falcons. The Florida State product's practice status in the next two days is worth monitoring to see if Week 16 prep follows a similar arch for Burns as it did in Week 15.

    Burns' not participating at practice Wednesday was because of an illness.

    Burns could still be dealing with some ankle soreness, but his listing on Carolina's injury report Wednesday wasn't related to his ankle issue. Either way, he'll probably need to practice in full Thursday or Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.
