Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Ron Edwards has been placed on injured reserve after dislocating his elbow against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.

The Carolina Panthers placed starting defensive tackle Ron Edwards on injured reserve after he suffered an elbow injury against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night, according to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer.

Edwards suffered a dislocated left elbow in Carolina's 30-22 win over the Eagles, and with an estimated recovery timetable of four to six weeks, the Panthers have decided to put Edwards on injured reserve and end his season.

The 12-year veteran started in all 11 games for the Panthers this year, recording 11 tackles and a sack while consistently commanding double teams.

With Edwards out for the season, the Panthers have signed defensive tackle Frank Kearse from the Carolina practice squad to take Edwards' spot on the 53-man roster. It is unknown at this time who would start in Edwards spot Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to Person, Sione Fua, Andre Neblett and Kearse will all battle for the starting position at practice this week.
