Jeff Otah’s Knee Injury Flares Up Again

The knee injury that sidelined Panthers right tackle Jeff Otah for most of the past two-plus seasons has flared up again, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Otah underwent an MRI on his left knee on Thursday after tweaking it at some point during the first two weeks of OTA practices. Otah was not at Friday’s practice.

“Jeff tweaked his knee a little bit. It swelled up a little bit, so we’re just checking on that,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “We sent him for an MRI (Thursday) so we’re going to have that read. We’ll see.”

Otah, a first-round pick in 2008, has missed 31 of the past 35 games due to injury. He played in four games last fall before placed on injured reserve with knee and back ailments.
