The training camp injuries keep piling up. This time the Carolina Panthers are reportedly dealing with a serious injury to their starting right tackle, Daryl Williams.

Several reporters who are at Panthers training camp this morning reported that Williams was tangled up and suffered an awkward fall. The former Oklahoma Sooner had to be carted off the field.

According to Panthers beat reporter Bill Voth, Williams suffered a right knee injury.

Here's more from Panthers training camp.

Williams took over at right tackle for the Panthers after an injury to Michael Oher in 2016. During the 2017 season, Williams started all 16 games for Carolina and earned a Second-Team All-Pro designation for his efforts.

It would be a significant hit to the Panthers offensive line if Williams suffered a serious injury.

During his time at Oklahoma, Williams started 36 games for the Sooners over his last three seasons and earned First-Team All-Big 12 honors in 2014.

We'll update Williams' injury when more becomes known.
