Kuechly was able to walk off the field, but was clearly favoring his left leg. He did return to the game, so it was clear that this wasn’t a major issue.
Kuechly, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Panthers back in 2012. He’s currently in the fourth year of his six-year, $64.105 million contract and set to make base salaries of $7.6 million and $10 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Kuechly appeared in 15 games for the Panthers and recorded 125 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three interceptions, a forced fumble, two recoveries, a defensive touchdown and six pass defenses.
