CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson is expected to miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery Tuesday morning to repair a broken fibula.

"It's hard to put that into words," Panthers coach Frank Reich said when asked what he'll miss most about not having his veteran leader. "We talk about a brotherhood -- he is just a close brother. This is a warrior. This is a guy who knows how to practice, he knows how to play, he's a team-first player.

"I was texting him last night. He's talking about ways he can get back before he gets all the news [about needing surgery], trying to figure out a way he's going to help the team. These injuries hurt."

Replacing Thompson, who led the team in tackles last season with 135, a week after losing starting cornerback Jaycee Horn (hamstring) for an extended period won't be easy.

Reich said he and general manager Scott Fitterer have discussed a plan, whether to replace Thompson with somebody on the roster or look outside, and all options are on the table.
