Panthers' Diggs leaves game

Posted by ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas

ATLANTA -- Carolina linebacker Na'il Diggs has left the game with a rib injury. The team is saying his return is questionable.

This could be interesting. Landon Johnson is listed as the backup on the strong side. But Dan Connor, whose primary position is middle linebacker, is Carolina’s best reserve linebacker and some people in the organization think his future could be on the outside.

The door for that might have just opened.
