Panthers DT Kemoeatu will likely miss entire season for torn tendon

The Carolina Panthers lost their eight-year veteran defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu who suffered tendon injury during a running drill on Monday workouts. The veteran from Tonga will undergo surgery Wednesday and will likely miss the entire NFL season.

Kemoeatu told reporters that he will try to wear back panthers jersey for the last month of the season.

"I wasn't coming into camp expecting to get hurt on the first day, but that's all a part of football," Kemoeatu said. "I'm holding onto everything I can on that little hope that I can still make it back on the field. We'll see."

Without Kemoeatu there will be a huge hole for the Panthers when it comes to stopping rival team runners. So it is urgent for the Panthers to find a DT from the 53-man roster to replace Kemoeatu.
