Dixon left Saturday's preseason matchup with an apparent chest injury and is questionable to return, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.
In his NFL debut last week, Dixon tallied three tackles against Baltimore. The Washington product has taken reps at both cornerback and safety for Carolina in the early going, but with a lot of uncertainty surrounding Dixon and his injury, it remains to be seen if he'll be able to squeak onto the roster by preseason's end.
Johnson (Achilles) was placed on the Panthers' reserve/NFI list on Monday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.
Johnson also began training camp on the active/NFI list after undergoing offseason surgery to repair an Achilles injury suffered last season with the Patriots. Although no timetable was provided for his return, Johnson could theoretically resume playing after the first six weeks of the regular season.
Addae (collarbone) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Addae's status appears to be on the upswing for next week's contest, as the safety was able to practice with the Chargers on Thursday, albeit on a limited basis. For this week, however, Adrian Phillips is expected to get the start in place of Addae.
Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Flowers was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, but that wasn't enough to convince the Chargers to activate the corner for Sunday's game, marking the fourth straight game the 30-year-old will miss with symptoms stemming from his Week 3 concussion. Look for Casey Hayward to get the start at corner once again.
Bailey (ankle) reached an injury settlement with the Chargers on Friday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Bailey signed with the Chargers in early-August, but didn't see a minute of preseason action. The agreement removes him from the team's injured reserve list, leaving him free to sign with another team.
