Palardy (knee) underwent successful ACL surgery last week, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Palardy suffered a torn ACL on his kicking leg earlier this offseason, ending his 2020 campaign before it began. The Panthers signed punter Kaare Vedvik off waivers Thursday to compete with Joseph Charlton for the starting job in Palardy's absence.
The Panthers placed Palardy (knee) on the reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The move ends Palardy's 2020 campaign. He suffered a torn ACL earlier this offseason and reportedly hoped to kick through the injury, but has now elected to undergo surgery and return in 2021.
The Panthers signed Palardy to a three-year, $7.52 million contract extension Tuesday, Bryan Strickland of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Palardy was set to become a restricted free agent after the 2018 season and is now signed to punt for the Panthers through 2021. He joined Carolina during the 2016 campaign after bouncing around the league. The 26-year-old punter is averaging 45.9 yards per punt this year.
