The Panthers are expected to be without two of their best players in Sunday’s game against Washington.

Today’s Panthers injury report is a lot like yesterday’s with several key players not participating in practice. Christian McCaffrey is among the players who didn’t suit up today, as expected, and he is all but confirmed to be out when the Panthers travel to Washington to face the Football Team this Sunday.

Defensive end Brian Burns, left tackle Russell Okung and cornerback Troy Pride Jr. also didn’t practice. Defensive end Austin Larkin, defensive tackle Braavion Roy and linebacker Adarius Taylor were limited.

According to Matt Rhule, Brian Burns and Troy Pride Jr. will also be out on Sunday.

(Personal note: The Panthers are 4-10 and have a top-five draft pick, so I think this is the right call.)

In other news, offensive lineman Dennis Daley has been placed on injured reserve and will not play for the remainder of the season after dealing with a concussion he sustained last month in Carolina’s win over the Lions.

We should have official confirmation on what we pretty much already know re: Burns and McCaffrey’s status for Sunday, so stay tuned for updates when they become available.
