Panthers place S Jeremy Chinn (hamstring) on injured reserve

The Carolina Panthers placed safety Jeremy Chinn on injured reserve, meaning he’ll miss at least the next four games while recovering from a hamstring injury.

The team announced the move on Wednesday.

Chinn, a 35-game starter for the Panthers over the last three seasons, injured his hamstring in the first quarter of Carolina’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. He played just six snaps before exiting.

Chinn will miss games against the San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons before he’s eligible to return from injured reserve.

Through four games in 2022, Chinn has 20 tackles, two pass breakups and one tackle for loss. He produced back-to-back 100-tackle seasons in 2020 and 2021 while finishing second in the Defensive Rookie of the Year voting in 2020.

Sean Chandler and Xavier Woods are the expected starters at safety with Chinn out.

The corresponding roster move was signing safety Juston Burris from the practice squad to the 53-man roster, and the Panthers filled Burris’ spot on the practice squad by signing safety Kenny Robinson.
