Panthers DT Depth takes another hit.

The Panthers' depth at defensive line took another hit Tuesday when the team placed tackle Gary Gibson on injured reserve. Gibson, who has an injured hand, will miss the rest of the season.

They signed defensive tackle J'Vonne Parker today to replace Gibson. Parker has been on the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad this season and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cleveland Browns in 2005. Parker, who has played 11 games in his NFL career, played college ball at Rutgers and was born in Roanoke Rapids.

The Panthers also signed defensive tackle Lorenzo Williams, a rookie from Missouri, to their practice squad. -- David Scott

Talk about the last thing we needed. I hope we find a good DT in free agency in the off-season. Remember when we stocked up on Guards and got a good O-Line? We need to do the same with DT's. That's how John Fox built this team to Super Bowl contenders in two years, and that's what he's the best at doing.
