Panthers Place WR Wallace Wright On IR, Waive 4 Other Players

The Panthers have placed Wallace Wright on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury that requires surgery, a blow for the team’s shaky receivers and special teams units. The Panthers on Tuesday also placed linebacker Thomas Davis on the reserve-physically unable to perform list, waived receivers Dexter Jackson and Oliver Young, and placed defensive end Hilee Taylor on injured reserve with a knee injury to get to the NFL limit of 75 players. Wright was signed in the offseason from the New York Jets mainly in hopes of boosting Carolina’s struggling special teams. But Wright had spent some time working with the starters at receiver. He was injured in Saturday’s win over Tennessee, further complicating the Panthers’ efforts to find a No. 2 receiver.
