According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, Carolina Panther right tackle Jeff Otah underwent an MRI on his left knee after tweaking it during the first couple of weeks of OTA’s.

“Jeff tweaked his knee a little bit. It swelled up a little bit, so we’re just checking on that,” said Panthers head coach Ron Rivera. “We sent him for an MRI (Thursday) so we’re going to have that read. We’ll see.”

I think the Panthers have a reason to be concerned about Otah’s future, since he’s missed 31 of the last 35 games due to injury.  Last season he was placed on injured reserve after four games due to his knee and back acting up.
