The Panthers will be without running back Jonathan Stewart tonight, evening out the scales on an evening where the Giants are missing many key offensive parts.
Also inactive for the Panthers were linebacker Thomas Davis and starting right tackle Byron Bell, along with safety Colin Jones, guard Mike Pollak, defensive tackle Sione Fua and quarterback Jimmy Clausen.
Davis, who is coming back from three ACL tears, was bothered by a hamstring strain.
The Giants already knew they were going to be missing several key players: Wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Domenik Hixon, running back Ahmad Bradshaw and right tackle David Diehl, along with defensive end Adewale Ojomo, who didn’t travel. Also inactive for the Giants were cornerback Michael Coe and tight end Adrien Robinson.
That means cornerback Prince Amukamara will be active for the first time this season.
