Panthers fear torn quad for defensive lineman Dontari Poe

Carolina Panthers defensive lineman Dontari Poe tore his quad in the team's Week 12 loss to the New Orleans Saints, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

What It Means:

This is another hit to a run defense that was already among the league's worst, as only two teams have allowed more yards per rush than Carolina's 5.0.

Poe has made 22 tackles and has 4 sacks this season.
