Horn will be looked at more extensively Friday, but the Panthers fear that he will need surgery to repair multiple broken bones in the metatarsal area in his foot and will likely miss 2-3 months, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Horn was carted off the field in the third quarter of Thursday's game after a non-contact injury. If the South Carolina product does need surgery, his rookie season may be over. Rashaan Melvin replaced the 2021 No. 8 overall pick for the remainder of the contest and will likely draw a few starts in Horn's absence.
