CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly left Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the second quarter to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Kuechly collided with an Eagles lineman during a goal-line situation on what became the Eagles’ first touchdown drive at Bank of America Stadium.

Kuechly, who is in his sixth season, has missed time because of injuries the past two seasons.

Prior to this season, he has had two concussions as a pro player. He missed the final six games of the 2016 season after suffering a concussion.
