Panthers backup LB Kion Wilson had an array of guns burglarized from his truck, according to Associated Press sportswriter Steve Reed (h/t Huffington Post).

According to the AP, referring to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report, "Wilson reported robbers broke into his F250 truck. He says they stole a FN 57 handgun, a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun, a Glock 23, and a Smith and Wesson Body Guard 380."

The truck door was damaged and $1,700 in weapons are now missing.

The report also says that police have no suspects and could not say whether or not the firearms are registered to Wilson.

Is this a cause for concern or non-issue?

Wilson doesn't play a big enough role on the Panthers for this to become an issue and it's not as though this is a Sam Hurd scandal in which he's going to have a huge impact on the locker room.

It's a serious matter, but one in which Wilson could by all means be a victim in. As long as everything checks out, his future with the Panthers shouldn't be in question.

Carolina has a huge opportunity to play spoiler to the Saints in New Orleans this week. Barring the Saints from stealing the No. 2 seed from San Francisco and closing out a rebuilding year with a 7-9 record would allow them to end the season on a high note.

They can't afford any distractions, but it's too early to consider this a major issue.
