Panthers sign LB Kelvin Smith, send Thomas Davis to IR

The Panthers have signed LB Kelvin Smith off the practice squad to replace injured LB Thomas Davis, who was placed on injured reserve after suffering a season-ending ACL tear in Sunday’s game against the Saints.

The Panthers plan to use Smith primarily as a back-up, because Landon Johnson has already been given the starting job in place of Davis.

This is a huge blow to the already injury-riddled defensive unit, who has been without the services of DT Ma’ake Kemoeatu since the first day of training camp, and DT Louis Leonard since the 2nd game of the regular season.
