Falcons vs. Panthers: Thursday injury update

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Charles Johnson continues to miss practice.

Carolina Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson has talked about his desire to play in Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, but it could be a case of the spirit willing and the flesh weak.

Johnson missed practice for the second-straight day, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to play. It's safe to assume he will not be able to play if forced to miss the final Friday practice. The divisional matchup is an important one to the star defensive end, who was courted heavily by Atlanta in free agency and a Georgia native.

Atlanta has big-time issues of their own. Starting wide receiver Roddy White has not been able to practice this week, while linebacker Stephen Nicholas is also poised to miss Sunday's game at a much-needed position. Sunday's game appears to be getting a little easier for the Panthers, but that's also an uneasy feeling.
