Panthers Have a Long List of Injuries for Sunday’s Game Against Detroit

The Panthers were back on the practice field Wednesday as they start prep for their Sunday showdown at home against the Detroit Lions.

The team was without a number of key players for the practice, and while they are hopeful some of them may return for the NFC showdown, it’s unlikely that some of them will be able to go Sunday.

Here is the first injury report for the week for Carolina:

Player Injury Wed Thu Fri Status
RB Christian McCaffrey Shoulder DNP
G John Miller Knee/ankle DNP
CB Donte Jackson Toe DNP
LB Tahir Whitehead Rib DNP
QB Teddy Bridgewater Knee Limited
OT Russell Okung Calf Limited
TE Chris Manhertz Shoulder Limited
S Sam Franklin Ankle Limited
DE Yetur Gross-Matos Shoulder Limited
DE Marquis Haynes Shoulder Limited
RB Mike Davis Thumb Full

Coach Matt Rhule says that the Panthers will be without McCaffrey, Jackson or Okung for Sunday’s game against Detroit

The other big name to watch is Teddy Bridgewater, who suffered a mild MCL sprain late in last week’s loss to the Buccaneers when he was tackled from behind on a sack by Jason Pierre-Paul.

His playing status is very much up in the air for Sunday’s 1pm game.
