The Panthers will likely play their season finale without several key contributors.
Head coach Matt Rhule said earlier this week running back Christian McCaffrey (thigh) was likely to miss his 13th game of the season. He’s officially been listed as doubtful after not participating in practice all week.
But defensive end Brian Burns (shoulder), left tackle Russell Okung (calf), running back Mike Davis (ankle), and cornerback Troy Pride (hip) are also doubtful to play. Of the four players, only Pride was able to practice this week. He was limited on Thursday and Friday.
Wide receiver Robby Anderson (groin), who didn’t practice Wednesday, has no game status and is expected to play.
