Panthers at Saints game day inactives: Devin Funchess, Kawann Short and Trai Turner out for season finale

New, comments

The Panthers will play the season finale without key players on both lines today.

The Panthers and Saints have revealed the players who will not play today. Both teams will be without key players for the season finale.

The Panthers will be without two of their best players on both lines, as Kawann Short and Trai Turner are both out today. Cam Newton is out for the second straight week after being shut down for the season.

The biggest surprise, however, is that wide receiver Devin Funchess is a healthy scratch. There have been no reports throughout the week of him being injured so this is strictly a coach decision and it’s weird, but I’m sure more information on this story will come out later. What a way to presumably end his tenure with the Panthers, though.

The Saints are playing without three of their offensive linemen as Terron Armstead, Jermon Bushrod and Larry Warford are all inactive today. As expected when Teddy Bridgewater was named the starter earlier in the week, quarterback Drew Brees is also inactive. Running back Alvin Kamara will also sit out today.

Here are the full inactives lists for both teams:
