Panthers Place K Graham Gano On IR, Promote TE Jason Vander Laan

The Carolina Panthers announced Wednesday that they’ve placed kicker Graham Gano on injured reserve and promoted TE Jason Vander Laan.

This means that the Panthers will finish out the season with Chandler Catanzaro as their kicker.

Gano, 31, originally signed on with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State back in 2009. He spent three years in Washington before signing on with the Panthers for the 2012 season.

Gano played out the final year of his four-year, $12.4 million contract before agreeing to a four-year, $17 million contract with $9 million guaranteed with the Panthers this past March.

In 2018, Gano converted 14 of 16 field goal attempts (87.5 percent) to go along with 30 of 33 extra point tries (90.9 percent).
