We’re just over an hour away from kickoff, and the Panthers have released the list of players who will not suit up for tonight’s season opener against the Broncos.
Let’s take a look at who will miss tonight’s action.
Inactives are in for Panthers: WRs Bersin and Byrd, S Marlowe, RB Artis-Payne, LB Norris, OL Larsen and DE Edwards.— Bryan Strickland (@PanthersBryan) September 8, 2016
I understand most of these moves, but the one that has me curious is Cameron Artis-Payne. It seems the Panthers would want an extra running back on the active roster in case Stewart needs a breather or two, but I suppose Rivera is going to depend on Fozzy Whittaker to carry that load.
Broncos Inactives will include Austin Davis, Ty Sambrailo, Jeff Heuerman Bennie Fowler #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) September 8, 2016
Nothing really stands out here for me. I kinda wish Von Miller was on the list though, if we’re being honest.
We’re just over an hour away from kickoff, Panthers fans. Are you excited yet?
