The Panthers and Jets aren’t exactly playing a thriller.
But the worst part for both teams has been seeing key contributors helped off the field.
In the first half, the Jets have lost tight ends Dustin Keller (hamstring) and Josh Baker (right knee), along with linebacker David Harris (ankle). Baker’s looked the worst, after he took a shot from Panthers rookie corner Josh Norman, who appeared to be falling into him.
Then, just before the break, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart was hauled off on a cart with a right ankle injury.
As deep as they are, the Panthers are running short in the backfield, with fullback Mike Tolbert on the sideline with a bag of ice on his right knee.
