Wednesday injury report roundup for Panthers and Jaguars

Yesterday we saw the first injury report for the week come out, and for Carolina (thankfully) it's pretty bare. With Thomas Davis hitting IR the Panthers can't afford any more injuries, so here's what we're looking at

Carolina Panthers

Name Position Injury Wed. Thurs. Fri. Game Status
Godfrey, Charles S Head DNP - - -
Newton, Cam QB Ankle Full - - -

 

 Excellent to know that Newton's boot was only a minor precaution, but it was scary to hear nonetheless. Godfrey is slightly more concerning because it means two things: First, that Carolina would be starting Jordan Pugh at FS this week, which based on his performance thus far in 2011 is disconcerting, but also because we lose yet another captain. Lost in the shuffle of the injury news is that the Panthers could potentially be without all three defensive captains this week with Beason and Davis on IR, and Godfrey in doubt.

If there's one area the Panthers are lacking right now on defense it's organization and identification. They need someone to take the reigns and from where I sit, James Anderson needs to become that player.

We'll look at the Jaguars' injury report after the jump

Jacksonville Jaguars

Name Position Injury Wed. Thurs. Fri. Game Status
Alualu, Tyson DT Knee Limited - - -
Hill, Jason WR Hip Limited - - -
Lewis, Marcedes TE Calf Limited - - -
Kampmann, Aaron DE Knee DNP - - -
Osgood, Kassim WR Hamstring DNP - - -

We already know that Kampmann will miss the game, which should take some of the pressure off the offensive line. Other than that, most of the key players should be ready by Sunday.
