If they do that, he would be ineligible to return to play for eight weeks.
The Panthers have not allowed a touchdown in two games after beating San Francisco 23-3 in Week 1.
The good news, according to defensive end Rafael Addison, is that the best is yet to come.
"That's legitimate", McDermott said.

The numbers told the story.
Newton finished 20 of 32 for 228 yards passing and carried the ball five times for 27 yards.
The Bills were outgained 193-39 in the first half, but only trailed 6-0 due to their defense. Running backs LeSean McCoy and Mike Tolbert combined for just 14 yards on 15 carries.

McDermott was the Panthers' defensive coordinator from 2011 through last season. "He's coachable", Dennison said. Without McCaffrey, the Panthers lost the majority of their quick plays and were left with the same slow developing downfield throws that we are all accustomed to seeing. And while he didn't look particularly effective in Week 1, it will be tough to keep him down. These are the things that we have been practicing on.
At least the Chargers (0-2) and quarterback Philip Rivers still know how to get the ball into the hands of tight end Antonio Gates. "I play my heart out for them, and absolutely love".
