This opens up a three-week window for Gross-Matos to practice with the team before Carolina has to add him to the active rost.
Gross-Matos, 22, was a two-year starter at Penn State and earned first-team All-Big Ten honors last season. The Panthers selected him with No. 38 overall pick in this year’s draft.
Gross-Matos signed a four-year, $8,198,804 rookie contract that includes a $3,522,767 signing bonus.
In 2020, Gross-Matos has appeared in four games for the Panthers and recorded six tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.
During his three-year college career, Gross-Matos recorded 111 total tackles, 36.5 tackles for loss, 18.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, and two forced fumbles.
