Panthers cornerback Josh Norman is inactive once again as the Panthers prepare to take on the Vikings, but defensive end Frank Alexander will see action this week as he has returned to the active list after two weeks of deactivation.
Rookie running back Kenjon Barner is also inactive today, apparently because he tried to return too soon after suffering a foot injury that had kept him on the inactive list for the first four games of the season. There must be something in the water in Oregon, as both former Ducks running backs on the roster have been dealing with foot issues this season (or, in Stewart's case, his entire career).
The defense will also be short handed as defensive tackle Dwan Edwards and safety Robert Lester will also miss today's game.
Rounding out the inactives list are the following players: wide receiver Marvin McNutt, cornerback DJ Moore and left guard Amini Silatolu.
