       === Panthers place Martin, Applewhite on IR among roster moves ===
 
 Charlotte,  NC (Sports  Network) - The Carolina Panthers made a slew of roster
 moves  on  Tuesday, including  the  placement  of  safety Sherrod  Martin  and
 defensive end Antwan Applewhite on season-ending injured reserve.
 
 Martin  was put  on the  shelf one  day  after a  diagnosis of  a torn  medial
 collateral ligament and anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a loss
 Sunday at Kansas City.
 
 The  fourth-year  pro out  of Troy finishes  the year with  23 tackles and one
 forced fumble in 12 games.
 
 Applewhite  was  sidelined by a  bothersome hamstring injury which has limited
 his  effectiveness.  The  San  Diego  State product  and  Los  Angeles  native
 concludes his 2012 season with just six tackles in five games.
 
 Carolina  also waived  offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges, promoted running back
 Armond  Smith  and offensive lineman Thomas  Austin from the practice squad to
 the  active roster, and signed defensive end Mario Addison from the Washington
 Redskins' practice squad.
 
 Bridges  played  in just  two games  this season, his  first with the Panthers
 after  three with  the Arizona  Cardinals.  A 32-year-old  native of  Indiana,
 Bridges  has  played 10  NFL seasons,  with a previous  stint in Carolina from
 2006-08.
