The Carolina Panthers are really hoping that something can change in week nine of the regular season, and maybe all they need is a short week to get motivated again. With a short week though, there is less time for injuries to heal and that makes for six people out against the New Orleans Saints.
The Carolina Panthers know the Seattle Seahawks have been on a downward spiral too, but they can’t underestimate them. That proves to be even more true with the Panthers looking at seven players listed as out on this week’s injury report.
The Carolina Panthers aren’t looking as strong as they did at the beginning of the season, but that can change with a win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Unfortunately, the running game and a few other positions are a bit of the walking wounded.
With the Carolina Panthers trying to get out of a funk that has seen them drop two of the last three games, the first day practice for week six didn’t make things easy to take. 10 different Panthers didn’t practice on Wednesday and some returned on Thursday, but it could spell trouble as a tough cluster of games begins.
The Carolina Panthers are hoping to rebound this week and stop the slide from continuing. Unfortunately, they are going to have to do it without much of a running game at all as their two top backs likely won’t even suit up for the match-up with the Chicago Bears.
The Carolina Panthers don’t have a horribly long injury list, but the handful of names on it are causes for concern. The biggest problems are in the offensive backfield and the secondary, and those are problems they can’t afford with a game against the Baltimore Ravens coming up.
The Carolina Panthers are currently looking at one of the longest injury reports they’ve had in quite some time, but it’s not all bad news as they head into their game with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Most of the injuries aren’t serious, but they’ve got to be careful not to worsen any that are lingering.
The Carolina Panthers are little bit beat up this week after the win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one, but there is one important thing coming from this week’s injury list. Quarterback Cam Newton is on the list again, but it will be next to impossible to keep him out of the line-up this week versus the Detroit Lions.
In the first week of the 2014 NFL regular season, the Carolina Panthers came close to having an injury report that couldn’t be any smaller. There is no more than one name listed on it, and that player is listed as questionable. The bad thing is that the one player’s name is their leader and starting quarterback, Cam Newton.
Just like in the regular season Percy Harvin’s return to the field in the postseason was short lived as Harvin will not be playing against San Francisco this weekend.
