Friday Injury Report: Panthers Getting Healthy

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers reported that several key starters were back in practice and expected to get back on the field just in time for their showdown with the Saints Sunday Night.

CAROLINA PANTHERS

Status Report

OUT

G Chris Scott (knee) - given how long Scott has been out I'm surprised he hasn't been put on IR. they must be expecting him back soon I would think.

DOUBTFUL

LB Jordan Senn (hamstring) - Senn is a key back-up but with Dan Connor on the roster know his loss isn't felt as much

PROBABLE

T Nate Chandler (knee), DT Dwan Edwards (not injury related), T Jordan Gross (not injury related), TE Ben Hartsock (knee), DE Charles Johnson (knee), RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle), RB Mike Tolbert (knee), G Travelle Wharton (not injury related), RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh)

Obviously getting Charles Johnson back is huge in so many ways for the defense. Yet Hartsock's return might have just as big an impact on the Panthers running game. Panther RBs haven't been quite as effective since Hartsock tweaked his knee a couple weeks though Cam Newton has filling int he rushing numbers with his scrambles.

Rejoice Panther fans we have all the pieces in place just when we need them.

Now the Saints, who are in pretty good shape as well

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Status Report

QUESTIONABLE

DT Brodrick Bunkley (ankle), S Rafael Bush (ankle), LB Keyunta Dawson (calf), DE Glenn Foster (knee), T Zach Strief (ankle)

Practice Report

DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE

Friday

S Rafael Bush (ankle), LB Keyunta Dawson (calf), DE Glenn Foster (knee)

LIMITED PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE

Friday

DT Brodrick Bunkley (ankle), T Zach Strief (ankle)

If Bunkley and Strief are limited that could have an impact but otherwise they appear to be in good shape as well.
