Johnson (back) is undergoing surgery that will keep him out of action until training camp, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old, who recently signed a two-year extension, has been been dealing with back pain and will undergo a minor surgery to address the issue. Head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said of the situation, "Following the surgery, we want Charles as active as possible while still taking the proper precautions. He will be up and moving around the next day, and we will progressively bring him back." Johnson recorded 26 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and two pass deflections through 13 games last season and shows no signs of slowing down. Look for more updates on his status to come once training camp is underway.

Johnson signed a two-year, $9.5 million contract with the Panthers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson, who has been with the Panthers since 2017, is not going anywhere soon. The veteran defensive end ranks second all time for the Panthers with 67.5 sacks, and has been the team captain for three straight season. He could have become an unrestricted free agent, but instead opted to stick with familiar scenery. He will presumably head into 2017 as the team's starting left defensive end.
