The Panthers have all of their players available for Sunday’s game against the Saints as no players are listed on the official injury report. This is especially good news for right tackle Taylor Moton, who was limited in practice today with a groin injury. Defensive tackle DaQuan Jones was also limited today with a groin injury, but is cleared to play on Sunday.

According to Matt Rhule, right guard John Miller will start after missing last week on the COVID-19/reserve list. If Miller is unable to play the whole game, Dennis Daley will be the next man up for the job after filling in last week.

Matt Rhule says they'll have to see if John Miller can make it through the whole game after coming off COVID list. Said Dennis Daley is ready behind him if needed.— Joe Person (@josephperson) September 17, 2021
As for the Saints, we’re still waiting on their official injury report to come out, but we do know that cornerback Marshon Lattimore will be a game-time decision after he sustained a hand injury last week.
Sean Payton said CB Marshon Lattimore will likely be a game-time decision with his hand/thumb injury. Said those types of injuries usually depend on the specific nature of the injury and they'll see how he does in practice today.— Mike Triplett (@MikeTriplett) September 17, 2021
The Saints are also waiting for back-to-back negative COVID test results to know how many members of their offensive coaching staff will be available for Sunday’s game.
As for the Saints' assistant coaches, Sean Payton said they'll need to go "2 for 2" in their COVID testing on Friday and Saturday to be cleared for Sunday's game. Payton said they'll get the results of their Friday tests later this afternoon/evening for Part 1.— Mike Triplett (@MikeTriplett) September 17, 2021
