The Panthers and Packers have released the players who will not play in tonight’s Week 15 matchup. As expected, Christian McCaffrey, Dennis Daley and Russell Okung will not play for the Panthers tonight. Natrell Jamerson, Will Grier and Austin Larkin are also inactive.
The Panthers have added two offensive linemen from the practice squad — offensive tackle Matt Kaskey and guard Aaron Monteiro — for tonight’s game as depth pieces, which makes sense with Russell Okung being inactive for tonight’s game. Strangely, Monteiro is on the inactive list after being brought up to the roster.
T Matt Kaskey and G Aaron Monteiro were elevated from the practice squad for tonight's game. Makes sense with Dennis Daley (concussion) out, Greg Little (ankle) on IR and Russell Okung (calf) questionable. Rhule didn't seem optimistic about Okung being available.— Alaina Getzenberg (@agetzenberg) December 19, 2020
The Packers will play without backup quarterback Jordan Love tonight, so those hoping to see him in action in the event of a Packers blowout are out of luck.
The full inactives lists for both teams are below.
