The Panthers have a big hole to fill in the middle of their defensive line, after last week’s injury to Dontari Poe.
They’re making moves to replace him now.
A former sixth-round pick of the Raiders, the 6-foot-3, 341-pound McGee has 29 career starts.
Poe suffered what was believed to be a torn quad in last week’s loss to the Saints, blowing a hole in the middle of a defense that has struggled to stop the run. Coupled with Kawann Short‘s early season addition to the injured reserve list, that’s two-thirds of their starting line on the shelf for the year.
