At this stage in the season you know who the players are on the injury report. Brandon LaFell, Jonathan Stewart, and Geoff Hangartner form a trio of offensive players who the Panthers will likely be without this week, but the injury report goes a little deeper than that.
Illness has struck the Carolina Panthers! The offensive line room was sanitized today after Byron Bell was added to the injury report with sickness, joining center Thomas Austin who missed practice yesterday. If Bell is unable to play it will cause an interesting situation for the Panthers where may need to finally bring Bruce Campbell into the picture, a player Panthers' fans have been waiting to see since he played extremely well in training camp and preseason.
A patchwork offensive line looks to get a little more dicey, but other than that it's more of the same for a team dealing with injuries all season.
