Charles Johnson suffered a groin injury in the Carolina Panthers' 31-13 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 8.

ESPN's David Newton reported Johnson left the game on a cart in the fourth quarter—which is never a good sign for a player.

After the game, Ron Rivera did little to allay fans' fears and revealed that Johnson had in fact hurt his groin, via the Charlotte Observer's Jonathan Jones.
