Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has torn his ACL for the third straight year.
“I would like 2 take the time and thank every1 that has supported me over my career. Unfortunately, I have re torn my acl,” Davis said. “Thanks for the prayers!!”
It’s a devastating development for one of Carolina’s defensive leaders. Davis told an ex-teammate in another tweet Sunday night that he “felt good until I got leg whipped.”
The Panthers thought so much of Davis, they gave him a huge contract this offseason despite his injury history. While the contract had injury protections, the Panthers gave Davis a $7 million signing bonus.
