Panthers to be without Star Lotulelei for playoff game against Seahawks

The already tough task of defeating the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field has gotten harder for the Carolina Panthers.

In the Panthers Wild Card Round win over the Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Star Lotulelei suffered a broken foot. He will miss the rest of the playoffs but should be able to have a normal offseason.

The injury to Lotuleli is more good news for the Seahawks offense who will take advantage of the hole created by the loss of Lotuleilei.

Lotulelei had 67 tackles and five sacks this season. He missed two games with an ankle sprain late in the season.
