Panthers DT Dontari Poe Undergoing Season-Ending Surgery On Torn Quad



David Newton of ESPN reports that Panthers DT Dontari Poe was, in fact, diagnosed with a torn quad and is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery. 

According to Ian Rapoport, Panthers DT Dontari Poe is feared to have suffered a torn quad during Sunday’s loss to the Saints. 

Poe is having an MRI to confirm the injury, which would likely end his season. 

Poe, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $11,320,006 contract when the Chiefs picked up his fifth-year option worth $6.15 million for the 2016 season.

Poe elected to sign a one-year, prove-it contract with the Falcons in 2017. He signed a three-year, $27 million deal with the Panthers and has base salaries of $800,000 and $4.5 million the final two years of the agreement.

In 2019, Poe has appeared in 11 games for the Panthers and recorded 22 tackles and four sacks. Poe is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 40 interior defender out of 121 qualifying players.
