ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The Panthers received some bad news in pregame warm-ups.
The Panthers now will likely be forced to use punter Lachlan Edwards in that role. Backup quarterback P.J. Walker has kicked in high school and has taken some practice reps, but that's not an ideal answer.
Gonzalez had hit 17 straight field goals this season, emerging as one of the most consistent kickers in the league. He has also improved on kickoffs after some early struggles.
