Carolina Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell was diagnosed with a concussion and held out of practice on Wednesday. LaFell left the Panthers game against the Bears on Sunday but was tested and able to return, however now it looks like he actually did suffer a concussion and could possibly be out for at least one week if not longer.
LaFell has 20 catches for 367 yards in six games this season with two touchdowns.
Fantasy Take: Fantasy owners were hopeful that LaFell would be the player to step up opposite of Steve Smith and be productive this season, but it's been hit or miss. He has had several good games this year, including 88 yards against the Bears, but has not broken out for a huge game.
This concussion should keep him completely out of starting lineups for at least a couple of weeks.
