Luke Kuechly Leaves Game vs. Eagles with Possible Concussion

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly left Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the second quarter and is being evaluated for a concussion, according to the Charlotte Observer's Joe Person.

Kuechly is the NFL's premier middle linebacker with four Pro Bowl nods and three All-Pro First Team selections to his credit.

He has continued to be the linchpin of Carolina's defense this season, entering Thursday with 42 total tackles, a forced fumble and an interception.

The former Boston College standout was a model of consistency by starting all 16 games in each of his first three NFL seasons, but remaining healthy has been far more difficult in recent years.
