Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson sustained a hamstring injury Sunday against the Saints and could miss "several" weeks, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Johnson left in the second half with only one assisted tackle on the ledger, bringing his season-long line to five tackles (two solo) and one sack. His diagnosis should be known within the the next few days, but Mario Addison and Wes Horton (shoulder) are present to pick up the slack at defensive end in Johnson's stead.
The Panthers have listed WR Tavarres King, WR Marvin McNutt, CB Josh Norman, RB Jonathan Stewart, LB Dan Connor, OL Travis Bond and DE Wes Horton as inactive against the 49ers. Stewart attempted to get through practice this week despite a knee injury. The other six players are healthy scratches.
