Horn (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Horn suffered three fractures in his right foot during Thursday's win over the Texans, and it was only a matter of time before he shifted to injured reserve. The initial diagnosis estimated a 2-to-3 month absence, though it's unclear at this point whether the 21-year-old will undergo surgery, which could end his rookie campaign. Regardless, Horn won't be retaking the field for the Panthers anytime soon.
Coach Matt Rhule said Monday that Horn (foot) is expected to be put on IR and be out for a while, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Horn was looking at a 2-to-3 month absence after the initial diagnosis of his broken foot. It's unclear if the 2021 No. 8 overall pick has elected to undergo surgery or not, but it was rumored that he may miss the entire season if he went that route. The Panthers recently signed Rashaan Melvin to their active roster and made a trade for CJ Henderson to prepare for Horn's lengthy absence.
Coach Matt Rhule said that Horn broke three bones in his foot during Thursday's contest against the Texans, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Person also reports that Horn and his family are still deciding on what the best course of action is. The 2021 No. 8 overall pick's rookie season will likely be finished if he elects to undergo surgery. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported earlier that Horn was looking at a 2-to-3 month absence.
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.
Horn suffered a broken right foot during Thursday's game against the Texans, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. The team didn't reveal an initial timetable for Horn's return, but we can expect to rookie to miss significant time. This is a major loss for the Panthers, who expended the No. 8 overall pick on Horn back in April. Through three games, he has posted five tackles (three solo), an interception and a pass breakup. Rashaan Melvin stepped in at corner Thursday. Melvin or A.J. Bouye -- who was scratched Thursday -- will start in Horn's place
