Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera says middle linebacker Luke Kuechly "more than likely" will miss his second straight game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints due to a concussion.

Kuechly was listed as doubtful on the team's injury report Friday.

The linebacker was injured in the season opener against Jacksonville following a collision with running back T.J. Yeldon.
