Sirles (hamstring) was released from the Panthers' injured reserve on Thursday with an injury settlement, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Sirles ended up on Carolina's injured reserve after suffering from a pulled hamstring. Having been granted his release, he's now an unrestricted free agent free to sign elsewhere.
Sirles won't return to Saturday's preseason game against the Patriots after injuring his hamstring, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.
The Panthers offensive line is getting brutalized this preseason, with Matt Kalil, Daryl Williams and Amini Silatolu all battling knee injuries as well. Expect updates on the severity of Sirles' hamstring injury to surface after the game.
Sirles played in 14 games for the Vikings this past season, making four starts at left guard. He also started nine games at right tackle in 2016, so he brings proven versatility to the Panthers. The 26-year-old will likely be in the mix to take over the starting job left behind by Andrew Norwell.
