It’s an unfortunate blow to Carolina’s defense and Horn, who missed time in the Panthers’ offseason program due to a foot injury. Horn has had a difficult time staying healthy through the first three years of his career, also missing extended periods in 2021 and 2022.   

Horn, 23, was a three-year starter at South Carolina and a second-team All-SEC selection as a junior. He opted out of the 2020 season after seven games and was drafted by the Panthers with the No. 8 overall pick in 2021.

Horn signed a four-year, $21,112,145 contract with the Panthers that includes a $12,714,287 signing bonus. The Panthers will have a fifth-year option to pick up on him in 2024. 

In 2022, Horn appeared in 13 games for the Panthers, recording 47 tackles and three interceptions.
