Panthers sign DT Micanor Regis

With one of their starting defensive tackles out for Sunday’s game at Minnesota, the Panthers have promoted an interior lineman from the practice squad, signing first-year pro Micanor Regis on Saturday, according to the NFL’s transactions.

To make room for Regis, the Panthers waived backup tailback Chris Ogbonnaya.

The 25-year-old Regis spent the preseason with the Panthers, then was re-signed to the practice squad after being waived on August 30. Regis (6-3, 305) is a Miami (Fla.) product.

Regis could help pick up some of the slack with second-year pro Star Lotulelei out with a knee injury. Veteran Dwan Edwards is the top backup to Lotulelei on the depth chart.
