One of the Rams’ biggest offseason acquisitions is being carted off.

Safety Eric Weddle is being attended to by the Rams’ athletic training staff, after taking a knee to the head from a hurdling Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey.

Weddle was talking as he was carted off the field, but had a decent amount of blood on his jersey as they wrapped towels around his head.

The 34-year-old safety was this year’s impact defensive free agent pickup for the Rams. He was replaced in the lineup by Marqui Christian.

UPDATE 2:23 p.m. ET: The Rams announced Weddle was doubtful to return because of a head laceration (which means they didn’t specify concussion).
