CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Panthers placed reserve running back and kick returner Nick Goings on injured reserve Wednesday, nearly a month after he sustained at least the third concussion of his career.
The Panthers signed linebacker Donte Curry to replace him on the 53-man roster.
Goings was injured on a kickoff return against Tampa Bay on Sept. 30. He did not play in Carolina's past two games, and coach John Fox said Goings had not been cleared by doctors to return to practice.
Curry, a seven-year veteran, was released by Detroit last week. He'll provide depth at linebacker with Dan Morgan out indefinitely with a partially torn Achilles tendon.
