It's November and Carolina isn't carrying any serious injuries into a game. In the past the Panthers have been devastated with a score of injuries to vital veteran players, but in 2013 the team has mostly dealt with rotational pieces at positions of depth.
Friday's injury report revealed just two players have been ruled out of Sunday's game against San Francisco, as offensive guard Chris Scott and cornerback James Dockery will be unable to play. Scott is technically the team's starter at right guard, but he hasn't played like it in 2013. Losing him is a zero-sum loss, especially given that rotational options have become oddly reliable over the last few weeks.
San Francisco are fairly healthy too. They're slated to be without rookie wide receiver Quinton Patton, but he hasn't been a factor this season and was unlikely to contribute on Sunday even if healthy.
