CHARLOTTE — With defensive tackle Kawann Short (foot) and defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos (concussion) ruled out for Sunday’s game, the Panthers have elevated practice squad defensive tackle Woodrow Hamilton to the active roster.

Under the new collective bargaining agreement rules, up to two practice squad players may be elevated to the active roster each week. That can happen a maximum of two times for each individual player before he must be signed to the 53-man roster.

This is the first of Hamilton’s two available activations.

Hamilton has been with Carolina since the 2019 offseason, spending most of his time on the practice squad. This is his fifth year in the league, having originally signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2016. Hamilton has played in two career regular-season games plus a postseason contest with New Orleans in 2017.
