Dealing with ankle issue

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-06-12

Luvu wasn't participating in Wednesday's mandatory minicamp session with what seems to be an ankle injury, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Fortier also noted that the injury seems to be minor and the Commanders are not concerned about Luvu's health. The 27-year-old linebacker agreed to a three-year, $36 million deal with Washington this past offseason to be one of the team's defensive leaders. Once he moves past his ankle issue, Luvu is expected to play alongside Bobby Wagner in what should be one of the best inside linebacker tandems in the NFL.

Joining Commanders

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-11

Washington plans to sign Luvu to a three-year, $36 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Luvu is coming off a career year in 2023 in which he recorded 125 tackles (66 solo) and 5.5 sacks. Now he's set to bolster a Commanders defense that ranked 27th against the run in 2023.

Another career year

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-12

Luvu finished the regular season with 125 tackles (66 solo), 5.5 sacks and two fumbles forced in 17 games.

Luvu led the Panthers in tackles, setting a new career high for the fourth straight season. Along with totaling 12.5 sacks over the past two campaigns, Luvu has also defended nine passes, with his five this term another personal best. As an unrestricted free agent this offseason, the 27-year-old could be in store for a significant salary increase.

Underwhelms in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-02

Luvu logged five total tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Jaguars.

Luvu was coming off back-to-back 10 tackle outings, but he was unable to replicate his recent successes in Week 17. The sixth-year linebacker has had a very productive season in Carolina, ranking first on the team in total stops (119) and second in both tackles for loss (10) and sacks (5.5). Expect Luvu and the Panthers' defense to try and end their season on a positive note in Week 18 against the Buccaneers.

Will play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Luvu (quadriceps) is active ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

Luvu has been dealing with a quadriceps injury since the Panthers' Week 16 loss to the Packers, but it seems as if this issue won't stop him from suiting up Sunday. The 27-year-old linebacker will look to continue his stretch of recording double-digit tackles in Week 17.

Gets questionable tag

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Luvu (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Jacksonville.

Luvu was limited at practice Thursday and Friday, so his availability for Week 17 seems close to a coin-flip proposition. If he can't play Sunday, Kamu Grugier-Hill would probably start at linebacker.

Misses Thursday's practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-28

Luvu (quadriceps) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, David Newton of reports.

Luvu seems to be in jeopardy of missing Carolina's Week 17 affair, as the 27-year-old linebacker has logged back-to-back DNPs to begin the team's week of practice. He'll almost certainly carry an injury designation into the weekend unless he's able to practice in full Friday.

Dealing with quad injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-27

Luvu (quadriceps) did not participate at practice Wednesday, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Luvu led the Panthers' linebackers in snaps (62) on his way to a 10-tackle game in Week 16, and it's not clear when he picked up the quadriceps issue. Either way, he'll likely need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance to play Sunday.

Leads Carolina in tackles again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-26

Luvu recorded 10 total tackles (six solo), including one tackle for loss and 1.0 sack, while also forcing a fumble in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

The 27-year-old linebacker is now up to 114 total tackles on the season, breaking his previous personal record of 111 tackles in 2022. Luvu has been a dominant force for the Panthers' defense thus far, leading the team in total tackles and ranking second in both tackles for loss and sacks. Expect the Washington State product to continue causing problems for opposing offenses for the remainder of the season.
