Carolina Panthers injury report: Wednesday update

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The first injury report of the season has a lot of important players limited, or missing time.

Carolina's offense will be the team's Achilles heel in 2013, which makes it concerning when five offensive players are on this week's injury report -- including two starters.

The biggest risks for missing this week are Jon Beason and Kenjon Barner, both of whom missed practice today. It's reported that Beason was given the day off practice, but still appeared on the team's injury report. Their status will be monitored throughout the week and it's safe to cross them off the available roster if we see them being held out from Friday's practice.

NAME POSITION INJURY WED. THU. FRI. GAME STATUS
Barner, Kenjon RB Foot DNP - - -
Beason, Jon LB Knee DNP - - -
Dockery, James CB Thumb LP - - -
Hartsock, Ben TE Foot LP - - -
Hixon, Domenik WR Hamstring LP - - -
Mitchell, Mike S Calf LP - - -
Silatolu, Amini G Hamstring LP - - -
Tolbert, Mike FB Hamstring LP - - -

Guard by committee could be an actuality if Amini Silatolu can't get healthy. Travelle Wharton will help mitigate some issues, but it's still a concern.
