Keydrick Vincent suffered a groin injury in the fourth quarter of the Panthers' 30-10 win over the Broncos last week that will keep him from participating in any games for the remainder of the season.
The Panthers felt that Vincent would not recover quickly enough for him to participate in any postseason games and placed him on IR.
Carolina has signed rookie DT Nick Hayden, a sixth-round pick out of Wisconsin, to fill Vincent's vacant roster spot.
G/T Jeremy Bridges will fill Vincent's position at right guard. Bridges started 10 games last season at right guard for the Panthers, and four games at right tackle this season in place of Jeff Otah.
