The Panthers won’t have one of their key defenders for their penultimate game of the season.

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore has been ruled out with a groin injury.

Gilmore did not practice this week. He has appeared in eight games for Carolina this year, recording a pair of interceptions and two passes defensed.

Left tackle Cam Erving (calf) and safety Sean Chandler (groin) are doubtful. According to multiple reporters, head coach Matt Rhule said Brady Christensen is likely to start at left tackle, as Erving is also dealing with a personal matter. The rookie out of BYU has started four games this season.

Linebacker Jermaine Carter (groin), safety Juston Burris (groin), and cornerback C.J. Henderson (shoulder/knee) are all questionable.

Carolina’s COVID-19 cluster did improve a bit, as receiver Brandon Zylstra has been activated off the COVID-19 list.

  1. He’s not doing himself any favors working on his last final next big payday…..I wonder if this is a result of how the Patriots tried to rehab him during the pre season & 1st 7 weeks of the year he was on IR…. I mean that’s what he cried about once he got felt to the Panthers & decided to speak up….. some players are just SOOOOOO full of themselves!!!!!!

  2. Funny thing is, he COULD STILL end up back on the Patriots roster next year…..I mean a lot of other players have done just that & my guess JC Jackson goes elsewhere for HUGE CAKE…..
