DT Gary Gibson Placed on IR; Parker Signed

The Panthers today placed defensive tackle Gary Gibson on injured reserve with a hand injury. The team filled the roster spot Tuesday by signing J’Vonne Parker, who had been on Atlanta’s practice squad. The 6-foot-4, 325-pound Parker has appeared in 11 games with Cleveland, Dallas and Baltimore since 2005.

Gibson backed up Maake Kemoeatu and Damione Lewis, and saw action in Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants before injuring his hand. Kemoeatu didn’t play because of a sprained right ankle, and Lewis was sidelined in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.

The injuries helped the Giants rush for 301 yards.

The Panthers also signed defensive tackle Lorenzo Williams to the practice squad.
