The Panthers gave a lot of players the day off today as they prepare for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. The following players were given a vet day today: Mike Adams, Thomas Davis, Ryan Kalil, Luke Kuechly, Julius Peppers, Eric Reid, Kawann Short and Trai Turner.
Quarterback Cam Newton also didn’t practice, but you’ve probably already heard the news that the team will shut him down for the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury. Taylor Heinicke will start in his place on Sunday.
Captain Munnerlyn is dealing with a knee injury and Shaq Thompson is nursing a sore shoulder. We’ll monitor their progress during the week but hopefully they’ll be ready to go on Sunday.
