Panthers DE Mario Addison (foot) has been ruled out for Week 12.

Addison is hardly a household name, but he is the Panthers' best outside pass rusher and has 6.5 sacks on the season. Carolina is traveling to Oakland without MLB Luke Kuechly (concussion), LT Michael Oher (concussion), and C Ryan Kalil (shoulder) as well.

Panthers DE Mario Addison was forced from Carolina's Week 11 game against the Saints with a right foot injury, and will not return.

Addison was having a big game, tallying two sacks. Including tonight, he leads the Panthers with 6.5 on the year.
Nov 17 - 11:21 PM

Panthers DE Mario Addison underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Addison played through the injury the second half of the season and playoffs, tallying six sacks on the year as a sub-package rusher behind Charles Johnson, Jared Allen, and Kony Ealy. With Allen retired and Johnson possibly on his way out, Addison could take on a bigger role this season.
Feb 24 - 2:12 PM

Panthers DE Mario Addison suffered a strained shoulder Sunday night against the Eagles.

Coach Ron Rivera said after the game Addison is "very doubtful" to play Week 8 against the Colts. He's undergoing tests on Monday. Carolina is already without Frank Alexander (Achilles, injured reserve) and Charles Johnson (hamstring, I.R./recall), and it looks like they will be without Addison for at least a couple weeks.

Addison, 26, appeared in all 17 games last season, making two starts and participating on 269 snaps. He amassed 21 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one forced fumble as the top reserve behind starters LE Charles Johnson and RE Greg Hardy. Addison will compete for that role again with rookie DE Kony Ealy.

Colts claimed DE Mario Addison off waivers from the Bears.
