Panthers place S Godfrey on IR

The SportsXchange

Free safety Charles Godfrey was placed on injured reserve with the torn Achilles' tendon he suffered in the Carolina Panthers' loss at the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The Panthers signed safety Robert Lester off the practice squad to fill Godrey's roster spot. Lester was signed as an undrafted rookie out of Alabama in May and joined the practice squad after being waived during Carolina's final roster cuts out of the preseason.

Godfrey is expected to be replaced in the starting lineup by D.J. Moore or Colin Jones.
