CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Los Angeles Rams safety Eric Weddle was carted off the field with a bloodied face during the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers and did not return.

Weddle suffered a head laceration and is under an evaluation for a concussion, the team announced.

Weddle was attempting to tackle Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey before McCaffrey hurdled Weddle and Weddle took a knee to the head.

He finished with two tackles.

A 13-year pro, Weddle signed a two-year, $10.5 million deal with the Rams in free agency after he was released by the Baltimore Ravens.

The 34-year-old Weddle has quickly ingrained himself in the Rams’ defense. He took over from linebacker Cory Littleton as the defensive signal caller and was named a team captain.
