The Panthers claimed DT Derek Landri off waivers from Jacksonville Friday, and placed DT Tank Tyler on injured reserve.
Tyler injured his knee last week in New York, and becomes the 10th Panthers to end up on IR this year.
Landri was released by the Jaguars Thursday after being inactive the previous four games. The former fifth-round pick from Notre Dame had added 20 pounds this offseason in hopes of becoming an every-down player in the Jags' since-scrapped 3-4 defense, but had gotten lost in the shuffle in the process.
His agent said Friday afternoon that Landri was working out travel arrangements to get to Charlotte tonight. Getting here this late in the week, it's unlikely he'd play Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Then again, with DT Tank Tyler out (meaning the return of the Nick Hayden era), you never know.
