Now we know why Luke Kuechly didn’t play in the Pro Bowl. The Carolina Panthers middle linebacker is recovering from shoulder surgery, a league source told the Observer on Monday. Kuechly recently underwent a procedure on his right shoulder, according to sources. He had surgery for a torn labrum in his left shoulder two years ago after the 2015 Super Bowl season. Kuechly, who won the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award on Feb. 3 in Minneapolis, skipped last month’s Pro Bowl because of an unspecified injury. He was replaced by the Atlanta Falcons’ Deion Jones.
