Garry Williams injury: Panthers OL out for season

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Panthers guard Garry Williams is likely out for the season, leaving a struggling offense to cobble together depth along the offensive line.

Carolina Panthers right guard Garry Williams is very likely out for the season after suffering a torn MCL and ACL during Sunday's loss to the Seattle SeahawksJoe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Williams suffered the injury during the first half of Sunday's game and was unable to return.

The loss of Williams leaves the Panthers even thinner along the offensive line. Left guard Amini Silatolu was marked inactive Sunday due to a hamstring injury. Though he is expected to be a full participant in practice Wednesday, he has yet to be officially placed back in the starting lineup, potentially leaving Chris Scott, Jeff Byers and Travelle Wharton to cover two spots.

Williams has suffered unfortunate injuries before. In 2011, he was slated to start full-time before suffering a broken ankle. An undrafted rookie free agent in 2009, Williams wasn't expected to become a star along the line, but a blow to the depth of the Panthers' offensive line could be critical for an offense that struggled throughout the preseason and put up just seven points against the Seahawks.
