Lotulelei, who has started all but three games this season, is set to be replaced by Colin Love for the clash with the Seahawks. ??
“He stepped on somebody’s foot and rolled his foot a little bit, right at the very end of practice,” said Panthers head coach Ron Rivera.
“I didn’t see it, I didn’t even know about it until somebody told me. But he went to see the doctor and then they called me with the news that everything had gone really well.
“We’ll miss Star, but I think we have the guys who can fill in and do more than an adequate job.”
Lotulelei could return for the Super Bowl on February 1, should the Panthers progress to the NFL’s showpiece finale.
