The Carolina Panthers have experienced a damned off-season so far.

In addition to injuries to quarterbacks Sam Darnold and Matt Coral,

Starting kicker Zane Gonzalez has now been ruled out with a "significant, long-term injury".

Gonzalez will reportedly see a specialist for a groin injury he suffered during last night's presidential finale against the Buffalo Bills.

The NFL world took to Twitter to react to the news.

One fan wrote, "Damn it. I hope we can find a kicker, we don't need these crises again."

"Why can't we ever have good things?" The other asked.

"Where we're going we won't need field goals," said another.

Through his first season with Carolina in 2021, Gonzalez connected on a career-high 90.9 percent of his field goal attempts.

His only two omissions of the year came on kicks longer than 50 yards.
