The Panthers added a little more depth to their defensive line for Sunday’s game against the Saints.
The team announced that defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon has been promoted from the practice squad. Nixon will revert back after the game and players can go through that process three times without having to be waived or released.
Nixon was a Panthers fifth-round pick last season. He had nine tackles and a half-sack in seven appearances as a rookie and did not play in either of the first two games this season.
