The Panthers placed S Haruki Nakamura on injured reserve Tuesday after he suffered a groin injury in Sunday’s win over the Falcons.
Nakamura is the only member of Carolina’s secondary to start all 13 games this season.
Nakamura has two interceptions, four passes defensed and 54 tackles this season.
Carolina signed S Anderson Russell to the roster from the practice squad. He played in three games earlier this season for the Dolphins.
