The Carolina Panthers will be without Omar Gaither for the next 2-to-4 weeks after the veteran linebacker suffered a sprained ligament in his knee in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Gaither left the game in the second quarter and did not return.

The 27-year-old had been starting at weak-side linebacker since Thomas Davis suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 2.

Jason Williams will start in Gaither's place until he is able to return.
