Otah to have to sit out the opener due to injury?

The early word is that OT Jeff Otah may not be ready to go for the teams season opener vs the Giants.

The Carolina Panthers knew Jeff Otah wasn’t going to play Thursday night, but the question is quickly becoming how many more he will miss? The starting right tackle, who’s been out since having an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee early in training camp, is not expected to be ready for the regular-season opener and perhaps the week after that, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The source said Otah had a setback during his rehab, which adjusted his return date. When Otah had the knee scope on Aug. 4, team officials said they were hopeful he’d be ready for the Sept. 12 trip to play the New York Giants.”I think it was a good move and something he’ll recover from pretty quickly,” Panthers coach John Fox said in August. Otah still hasn’t been activated from the physically unable to perform list, or practiced this year.
