Carolina Panthers’ star defensive tackle Kawaan Short was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday with a partially torn rotator cuff, ending his season.
Short, a two-time Pro Bowler, suffered the injury back in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and hasn’t played since.
Panthers’ general manager Marty Hurney issued the following statement, while announcing that Short will undergo surgery.
“KK has done everything he could possibly do to try to play these past two games,” Hurney said, “but we have made the decision that it is in the best long-term interest of KK and the team that he undergo surgery to fix his shoulder and focus on his rehab and get ready for next season.”
Short collected four tackles over his only two games of the season.
