Losing star running back Christian McCaffrey was bad enough for the Carolina Panthers. But it seems as though injuries don’t discriminate.

2021 eighth overall pick Jaycee Horn was the next Panther to leave Thursday night’s slop-fest against the Houston Texans. The rookie cornerback twisted his right foot while backpedaling on the turf early in the third quarter and did not put any weight on it while being assisted off the field.

He would then be carted away into the locker room, as noted by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Horn had been playing up to his billing to this point, allowing just two receptions over five targets for 18 yards in the first two games. His injury now comes just two games after Carolina lost versatile defensive back Myles Hartsfield, who will miss over two months of action.

And in another secondary setback, safety Juston Burris, who also exited, is doubtful to return with a groin injury.
