The Carolina Panthers have lost Michael Palardy for the season because of a knee injury, with the team placing the punter on the reserve/non-football injury list on Tuesday after he tore his left ACL earlier this offseason. Palardy had hoped to play through the injury, but the team decided he needed surgery.
Palardy has been Carolina’s punter since midway through the 2016 season. The left-footed Palardy averaged 46 yards per punt last season.
