The Panthers fear that defensive tackle Dontari Poe tore his quad in Sunday’s last-minute loss to the New Orleans Saints according to Ian Rapoport of

And so one of the worst run defenses in the NFL in 2019 is poised to get even worse. Carolina was already allowing 5.0 yards per carry and a league-high 19 touchdowns on the ground this year even with Poe in the lineup.

Originally the No.11-overall pick in the 2012 out of Memphis by the Kansas City Chiefs, Poe signed a three-year, $27 million contract to join the Panthers in March 2018.
