    Unhappy Carstens recovering from blood clot, out of hospital

    ESPN.com link

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Jordan Carstens is out of the hospital nearly a week after being admitted with a blood clot on his left lung.

    Carstens was released from the hospital Tuesday, six days after being hospitalized for chest pains. Carstens is still taking blood thinners and is not expected to return this season, but the team hasn't yet put him on injured reserve.

    He was diagnosed with a kidney problem last year. One of the side effects of the medication he was taking was the possibility of clotting.

    Carstens started 15 games last season, but played in only one game this year after the return of Kris Jenkins from a knee injury.

    Carstens was the only player listed as out on the Panthers' injury report Wednesday. Center Justin Hartwig did not practice with a lingering groin injury and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
