Bears WR/KR Domenik Hixon tore his right ACL in Tuesday's OTAs session.

It's devastating news, as it's Hixon's third-career tear of his right ACL. The eight-year veteran hinted in a Facebook post that he's considering retirement. Hixon caught seven passes in 15 games for the Panthers last season, largely focusing on special teams.

Bears signed WR/KR Domenik Hixon to a one-year contract.

Hixon, 29, was a disappointment as a receiver pickup in Carolina last year, but is a productive special teamer coming at a cheap cost. He will compete to replace Devin Hester on return. Don't expect Hixon to play any offense.

Free agent WR Domenik Hixon is visiting the Bears Thursday.

The Panthers are not interested in bringing Hixon back even though their receiving corps is an empty cupboard. That should speak volumes. The 29-year-old ex-Giant is a No. 4 receiver and middling return man.

Domenik Hixon caught two passes for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win at Atlanta.

Hixon was thrust into increased snaps thanks to Steve Smith's knee injury, and he failed. His biggest play was a drop on a high ball that led to Cam Newton's lone interception on the day. Hixon, who finishes his first season in Carolina with seven catches for 55 yards and one touchdown, will go back to No. 4 wideout duties in the playoffs.

Domenik Hixon caught two passes for 18 yards and a touchdown in Carolina's Week 16 win over the Saints.

The catches were the free agent bust's fourth and fifth of the year. The second was the most important one of the day for the Panthers, as Hixon made a diving, ultimately game-winning grab in the end zone with 0:23 remaining. Hixon was only in the game because Steve Smith (knee) was sidelined. Regardless of Smith's status, Hixon isn't going to make a Week 17 impact.

Domenik Hixon failed to catch a single pass in Carolina's Week 2 loss to Buffalo.

Hixon was active after missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury, but barely saw the field and was used behind Ted Ginn and Armanti Edwards. He's likely playing at less than 100 percent and is in danger of falling behind Ted Ginn.

Panthers WR Domenik Hixon (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Bills.

Hixon will make his Panthers debut and should immediately regain his slot receiver role after returning to a full week of practice. Kenjon Barner, CB James Dockery, C Brian Folkerts, CB Melvin White, TE Brandon Williams, DT Sione Fua, and DE Wes Horton have all been declared inactive.
Sun, Sep 15, 2013 11:40:00 AM

Panthers WR Domenik Hixon (hamstring) is probable for Week 2.

Hixon got in his first full practice of the season Thursday and hasn't had any setbacks. He'll immediately regain the slot receiver role in the Panthers' offense, but remains off the fantasy radar.
Sat, Sep 14, 2013 08:16:00 PM

Panthers WR Domenik Hixon (hamstring) got in his first full practice of the season on Thursday.

He's now trending toward making his season debut Sunday in Buffalo. Hixon will likely slide in as the Panthers' No. 3 receiver ahead of Ted Ginn and Armanti Edwards, but is off the fantasy radar for the time being.
Thu, Sep 12, 2013 06:30:00 PM

Domenik Hixon (hamstring) remains limited in Panthers practice this week.

Hixon was a game day inactive for the opener against the Seahawks. He might be able to get out there against Buffalo this week, but he's off the fantasy radar.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 05:47:00 PM

Panthers declared WR Domenik Hixon (hamstring), G Amini Silatolu (hamstring), SS Mike Mitchell (calf), RB Kenjon Barner (foot), CB James Dockery, C Brian Folkerts, and DE Wes Horton inactive for Week 1 versus Seattle.

Ted Ginn and Armanti Edwards will be Carolina's Nos. 3 and 4 receivers. Chris Scott and Travelle Wharton will rotate at left guard. Quintin Mikell will get the start in place of Mitchell just six days after signing.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 11:44:00 AM

Panthers WR Domenik Hixon (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Hixon was limited in practice all week. He's not on the fantasy radar behind Steve Smith, Greg Olsen, and Brandon LaFell in the targets pecking order.
Fri, Sep 6, 2013 01:07:00 PM

Panthers WR Domenik Hixon (hamstring) has been limited in practice this week.

Hixon still isn't over the injury that cost him three of four preseason games. The Panthers' No. 3 receiver by default, Hixon is off the re-draft radar for the time being, even in PPR leagues.
Thu, Sep 5, 2013 05:51:00 PM

Panthers WR Domenik Hixon (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday.

Hixon missed the first three preseason games with the balky hamstring, and his roster chances have taken a major hit over the span. No Panther receiver has really separated himself in the battle for No. 3 duties behind Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell, but Hixon is going to need to put something on film this week.
