Panthers LT Matt Kalil to see Dr. Andrews about knee
Carolina Panthers left tackle Matt Kalil is headed to see Dr. James Andrews about his problematic knee.
Kalil has been dealing with a sore knee during training camp. NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport say Kalil will be examined by Dr. Andrews on Tuesday.
#Panthers LT Matt Kalil will be examined tomorrow by renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews, sources tell @RapSheet and me, as he seeks answers for a sore knee that has bothered him during camp. Andrews scoped both of Kalil’s knees in 2015.

Kalil, 29, was the No. 4 overall pick out of USC in 2012. He spent his first five seasons with the Minnesota Vikings before signing a big $55 million deal with Carolina. Though he made 16 starts last year, the Panthers were looking for better play from him this season.
He and the team will hope Dr. Andrews is able to provide more answers about the situation.
