The Carolina Panthers waived/injured defensive end Frank Alexander after he tore his Achilles in Saturday’s exhibition against Miami. If Alexander goes unclaimed on the waiver wire on Tuesday, he will revert to the team’s injured reserve.

Carolina signed tight end Dallas Walker, who had previously been in Carolina’s rookie camp. Walker is the first tight end the team has signed since Jamie Childers broke his arm and was waived with an injury settlement.

Kelvin Benjamin remains on the team’s 90-man roster. Carolina could only waive/injured him at this time, but that would expose him to waivers and a team would most certainly pick him up. The Panthers will have to wait until after the first round of cuts next week before placing Benjamin on IR.
