Zordich tears ACL during preseason game

Posted: Updated:

Panthers rookie fullback and Valley native Michael Zordich's dream of following in his father's footsteps and play in the NFL has hit a hurdle.

Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Zordich, a backup fullback, tore the ACL in his left knee and will be placed on injured reserve this week.

Zordich, who was facing an uphill battle for a spot on the 53-man roster, was injured in Carolina's preseason game Friday night against the Chicago Bears.

His father, Michael, played 12 seasons in the NFL, mostly with the Philadelphia Eagles.
