CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers linebacker Jordan Senn is playing so well since stepping into the starting lineup, coach Ron Rivera says he's considering making him a full-time starter next season.
That's pretty big news for a guy who's been told throughout his football career he's too small to be an every down linebacker in the NFL.
The 5-foot-11, 224-pound Senn has long been touted for his special teams play.
But since taking over as the Panthers starting weak side linebacker — only after three others ahead of him on the depth chart got hurt — Senn has been impressive. He's coming off his best game, registering 14 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in a 28-13 win over the Texans.
Senn will start Saturday when the Panthers (5-9) host Tampa Bay (4-10).
