Panthers vs Jaguars Friday injury report: Cam Newton, Donte Jackson, Trai Turner, Greg Little and Chris Manhertz ruled out for Sunday

New, comments

The Panthers will face Jacksonville without several key starters on Sunday. This is fine, y’all. This is fine.

The Carolina Panthers are preparing for their Week 5 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars and have ruled out a few key players for Sunday’s game.

Cornerback Donte Jackson, guard Trai Turner, offensive tackle Greg Little and tight end Chris Manhertz have all been ruled out for Sunday’s game. Quarterback Cam Newton was also ruled out as expected.

Edge rusher Brian Burns, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and safety Eric Reid are all questionable for Sunday.

To put it mildly: This is not good for the Panthers. That’s a lot of starter quality players sidelined for a Week 5 game, and hopefully the depth will be strong enough to see them through against the Jags. Fortunately the bye week is only two weeks away, and at this point it is a much needed week off for several players.
