Panthers vs Vikings game day inactives: Shaq Thompson out for Carolina, Mike Remmers out for Minnesota

The Panthers will be without one of their starting linebackers when they face off against the Vikings this afternoon.

The Panthers will be without on of their three starting linebackers today against the Vikings as Shaq Thompson has been ruled out with a foot injury. Thompson missed practice every day this week and was officially ruled out on Friday, so his inclusion on the inactive list isn’t a surprise. Captain Munnerlyn will see more snaps due to Thompson’s absence, and David Mayo will slide into the Thompson’s spot in the linebacker corps alongside Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis.

Tyler Larsen is also inactive, but Ryan Kalil is back in the starting lineup. Greg Van Roten is the backup center.

Both Fozzy Whittaker and Cameron Artis-Payne are active, so maybe we’ll see them get a few carries against the Vikings.

Also, there won’t be a homecoming revenge game in the cards for offensive tackle Mike Remmers, who is listed as inactive for the Vikings. Pat Elflein, the Vikings’ starting center, will also miss today’s game.

Here are today’s inactives for both teams:
