Panthers' Mario Addison out vs. Titans after brother's death

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers will be without sack leader Mario Addison on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans as the outside linebacker continues to deal with the death of his brother.

Addison was ruled out on Saturday, the day after he laid to rest Gjamal Antonio Rodriqcus, who was shot to death last Sunday in Birmingham, Alabama.

Addison has been in his hometown all week. General manager Marty Hurney and Mark Carrier, the executive director of the Panthers' football staff, went to Birmingham on Friday for the funeral and to show support for Addison and his family.
