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.
Sirles (knee) practiced without limitations Friday and is in line to play Sunday against the Rams.
Sirles will return to his role as a reserve lineman, and he likely won't see the game field unless left guard Nick Easton gets hurt.
Sirles (knee) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.
The absence will mark Sirles' second consecutive game missed. His next chance to play will be in Week 11.
Sirles hurt his knee Sunday against the Ravens and won't return.
Sirles was only playing because Nick Easton (calf) was inactive Sunday, so expect Danny Isidora to slot in at left guard for the remainder of the game.
