UPDATE: ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported Horn suffered a broken foot.

On Thursday night, the Carolina Panthers received some tough news when star running back Christian McCaffrey was ruled out for the rest of the game. McCaffrey suffered a hamstring injury early in the first half and almost immediately was ruled out of the game. Unfortunately for the Panthers, that wasn't the only bad injury news tonight. Rookie corner Jaycee Horn suffered what looked to be a serious injury in the second half. The first-round pick attempted to make a play on the ball, but went down with a non-contact injury. After several replays on video fans still couldn't exactly what happened. Just minutes into the fourth quarter, the Panthers announced an update for their budding superstar. According to Panthers writer Darin Gantt, Horn suffered a foot injury.

The severity of the injury is still unclear. Horn reportedly left the game and immediately went for x-rays on his lower leg. The Panthers won't know more about his injury likely until tomorrow, so they'll be waiting with bated breath to hear the results.

Carolina is in line to win the game, but after losing two of the team's most important players, the Panthers will still leave tonight with a bad taste in their mouth. Hopefully the injuries to Christian McCaffrey and Jaycee Horn aren't as severe as they appeared.
