 Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Panthers' picks: Round 2/44 -- Kawann Short, DT, 6-3, 308, Purdue...Even though they had bigger glaring holes in their secondary, the Panthers used their second pick on another defensive tackle. Short was at the top of their board at the time, and they're going to use the talented pass rusher in a rotation with Lotulelei and veteran Dwan Edwards. - The Sports Xchange

 Kawann Short TSX Player News Log
08/07/17 - DT Kawann Short missed practice time, but he was back in a regular role by the weekend after dealing with a hamstring ailment.
04/17/17 - DT Kawann Short signed a five-year contract with the Carolina Panthers worth $80 million. The Panthers kept Short from free agency with the non-exclusive franchise tag on Feb. 27, but coach Ron Rivera called him one of the team's most important players and "too valuable to lose." Short, second-round pick in 2013 out of Purdue, has 22 career sacks.
02/28/17 - DT Kawann Short will not hit the open market after the Panthers used the exclusive franchise tag on him Monday. Short, a first-time Pro Bowl pick in 2015, was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent when the league year begins March 9. By designating Short the franchise player, negotiations toward a long-term deal can be conducted until the July 15 league deadline. If no deal can be reached, Short would earn $13.4 in 2017 on a one-year tender.
11/30/16 - DT Kawann Short was limited Wednesday due to a back injury that has cropped up time and again over the past couple of years.
09/04/16 - DT Kawann Short returned to practice after missing three days last week due to a sore foot.
08/31/16 - DT Kawann Short missed his third straight day of practice on Tuesday. Short is dealing with "soreness," according to coach Ron Rivera, who said the Pro Bowler would "without a doubt" play in Week 1.
12/09/15 - DT Kawann Short has seven sacks this season, tying Kris Jenkins (7.0 in 2002) for the most sacks by a DT in a single season in Panthers history.
10/25/15 - DT Kawann Short received weekly NFL recognition for his efforts against Seattle, and he must have enjoyed the attention because he was active again in the game against Philadelphia. He was credited with three of Carolina's five sacks.
08/12/15 - DT Kawann Short has been limited by back spasms, and the Panthers are leaning toward holding him out Friday against Buffalo.
08/03/15 - DT Kawann Short, out since Saturday with back spasms, will be re-evaluated in Charlotte during the team's day off on Tuesday. "He's close," Rivera said. "They took an MRI the other day and that came up negative so that was a good thing. Now it's just the process of working him back into shape."
