Panthers vs. Rams: Dwan Edwards, Josh Norman among inactives for Carolina

US PRESSWIRE

The Panthers will be without the services of Dwan Edwards and Josh Norman for today's game in Charlotte.

Panthers defensive tackle Dwan Edwards will not be on the field when Carolina squares off with the Rams today at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. The Panthers will rely on a defensive tackle rotation of Star Lotulelei, Kawann Short, and Colin Cole to anchor the defensive line against St. Louis.

Cornerback Josh Norman is also inactive again, proving that Ron Rivera's dog house is a cold, lonely black hole where NFL dreams go to die.

The rest of the Panthers inactives are as follows: wide receiver Marvin McNutt, safety Robert Lester, cornerback DJ Moore, running back Armond Smith and defensive tackle Sione Fua.

Two names of note that are not on the inactive list: defensive end Frank Alexander and running back Kenjon Barner. With Fua on the inactive list, expect defensive end Greg Hardy to see some action at defensive tackle on third down situations.

With Robert Lester sitting out, safety Quintin Mikell will start today against his former team.

And for all you who were hoping for a Steve Smith vs. Cortland Finnegan throwdown, you're out of luck. Finnegan is among the Rams' inactive players for this game. The rest of their inactives are listed in the tweet below:
