Charles Johnson is out for Sunday

In less than a day, “more than likely” became “absolutely.”

Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson will miss Sunday’s game at Carolina; according to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, Johnson officially is out.  As the Panthers try to run their winning streak to seven games, they won’t have a guy who has racked up 8.5 sacks so far this season.

Johnson suffered an MCL sprain on Monday night, when he was on the wrong end of a Marcus Cannon leg whip.  It’ll be interesting to know — and we likely will later today — whether Cannon gets fined for the infraction, for which there was no flag.

The 7-3 Panthers play the 5-5 Dolphins in Miami on Sunday.  Johnson is regarded as week-to-week with the injury.

    Don’t you think its about damn time for Charles Johnson to be named a pro-bowler?

    Its disgusting that big market players are usually the only ones to get in, whether they deserve or not.

    That leg whip was the real – and only – non call.

    Waaaa!

    Things get missed. It’s a bigger travesty when things are caught and ignored.

    I hope Johnson is okay and back for Carolina’s first round playoff exit.
