Kony Ealy: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Ealy began the week in a protective boot to treat a mid-foot sprain, which he overcame in time to practice toward the end of the week and play Sunday. In fact, he took the field for Carolina's second defensive series and looked promising in pass-rush situations, although he did draw a late-hit personal foul penalty. While he remains behind both Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy at defensive end, Ealy could benefit from added playing time with Frank Alexander being suspended for the first four games of the regular season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Ealy expects to be back practicing in a couple of days, as the Panthers hope his foot sprain doesn't worsen into a Lisfranc injury. The rookie made a decent preseason debut Friday, making three tackles, including one for loss, against the Bills. While Ealy will be held out for the early portion of this week, Carolina expects more news regarding his status in the coming days.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Selected in the second-round this year, Ealy figures to see playing time as a reserve defensive end this season. The proven duo of Greg Hardy and Charles Alexander should dominate the snap-count on each end, but Ealy is a pretty good athlete that could add another quality lineman to the Panthers' rotation.
