Panthers made run at DT Boone

Posted by ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas

The Carolina Panthers, desperate for help at defensive tackle made a run at Alfonso Boone, a league source said.

But Boone appears to be headed for San Diego, where he has history with defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.

That leaves the Panthers still looking for help. They lost Louis Leonard to a broken ankle Sunday and Nick Hayden sat out Sunday’s game with a toe injury. Damione Lewis and Ra’Shon Harris are the only healthy defensive tackles on the roster at the moment.
