The Panthers scored the first touchdown of a 41-7 loss on an 8-yard Destin Coates run in the first quarter. Elliott said a fist bump during the ensuing celebration caused the injury.
He is expected to undergo surgery to repair the tear on Monday. This is why the tradtional high five is always a much safer play.
