Carolina Panthers left tackle Matt Kalil underwent a scope to clean up his right knee and is week-to-week, the team announced Tuesday.
"Matt Kalil traveled to Florida on Monday to receive a second opinion on his right knee from Dr. James Andrews," team trainer Ryan Vermillion said in a statement. "After consulting with Dr. Andrews, the decision was made to perform an arthroscopic procedure on Matt's knee. He will be evaluated on a weekly basis."
Kalil had been dealing with a sore knee that kept him out of practice.
