Shaq Thompson’s Ankle Injury Will Preserve Him Out for a Prolonged Period

The Carolina Panthers suffered a number of setbacks in their current game against the New Orleans Saints. Not only did they shed the game, but they also lost their linebacker Shaq Thompson to a considerable ankle injury. Panthers head coach Frank Reich expressed his concern about the injury, mentioning that Thompson is anticipated to miss an extended period of time. Additional evaluation from medical doctors is scheduled for Tuesday.

The injury occurred when Panthers defensive lineman DeShawn Williams collided with Saints tackle Trevor Penning, causing Thompson to sustain the injury. Defensive tackle Derrick Brown acknowledged the effect of Thompson’s absence, stating that he is the leader of the group and his injury impacts absolutely everyone.

Adding to the Panthers’ defensive woes, cornerback Jaycee Horn had currently been placed on injured reserve a handful of days prior. These injuries have dealt a considerable blow to the Panthers’ defense, leaving them with essential players sidelined in a quick span of time.
