Mike Tolbert: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Tolbert (leg) expects to be ready to play once he's eligible to return in Week 13, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tolbert is currently on the Panthers' designated-to-return list, which will prevent him from playing for four more weeks. However, with the fullback reportedly ahead of schedule in his recovery from a hairline fracture in his left leg, Tolbert is aiming to be full go for that Week 13 contest versus the Vikings.
Tolbert (leg) has been placed on the Panthers' injured reserve/designated-to-return list.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tolbert suffered a hairline fracture in his left leg during Sunday's loss to the Steelers. While he was initially expected to miss more than a month, Tolbert's being named Carolina's designated player to return will prevent him from playing until Week 13 against the Vikings. With the bulldozing fullback's injury coinciding with fellow ball-carriers Jonathan Stewart (knee) and Fozzy Whittaker (quadriceps) also expected to miss time, the Panthers figure to use DeAngelo Williams (thigh) and perhaps Darrin Reaves in their running game moving forward.
Tolbert could miss more than a month with a hairline fracture/bone bruise in his left leg, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

As a result, Tolbert will miss Week 4's game against the Ravens, at a minimum. Meanwhile, Jonathan Stewart is dealing with a severely sprained right knee, with about the only positive Panthers' backfield news to emerge Monday being that coach Ron Rivera said that he hopes DeAngelo Williams can practice Wednesday.
The Panthers are awaiting the results of Tolbert's (leg) MRI, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Tolbert will again be the starting fullback for the Panthers and see short-yardage carries and catches out of the backfield.

2012

Tolbert took more of a backseat to Ryan Mathews last year in San Diego, but he still totaled 923 yards with 10 touchdowns. He was clearly miscast, as his seven drops tied for the most among all backs, and he went just 5-for-18 at the goal line. Moreover, getting just 4.0 YPC on a Norv Turner led Chargers offense is far from exceptional. Despite being offered more money to stay in San Diego, Tolbert curiously signed with the Panthers during the offseason, where he’ll be shifted to fullback with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart on the roster.

2011

Tolbert had never received more than 25 carries in a season before last year, when he got 182 rushing attempts thanks to Ryan Mathews’ injury problems. Tolbert took advantage, rushing for 11 touchdowns, as he went 10-for-18 at the goal line. Any lead back for Norv Turner’s San Diego offense would possess plenty of fantasy value, but it’s clear Tolbert is an inferior talent to Mathews, so he’s slated for a backup role in 2011. Tolbert will be one of the most important handcuffs, however.

2010

Tolbert is the second string fullback in San Diego, which means that offensive touches will be few and far between.

2009

Tolbert spent most of his rookie season as the starting fullback, but he seemed to fall out of favor with the coaches down the stretch and appears to have lost his job to Jacob Hester. But even if he regains his playing time in training camp, he is not a player that will ever touch the ball more than one or two times per game, so he should not be counted on in any fantasy league.

2008

Tolbert is looking to make the squad as a fullback in his rookie season. The team is searching for a replacement for Lorenzo Neal after releasing him in the offseason, and Tolbert is in competition with Andrew Pinnock, who has been slow to recover from offseason knee surgery.
