Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Not expected to dress Sunday
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera isn't optimistic about Thompson's (foot) chances of playing Sunday against the Vikings, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Thompson was battling a foot injury ahead of the Panthers' Week 13 loss to the Saints and seemingly aggravated it during the contest, as he left the stadium in a walking boot. The third-year linebacker didn't practice Wednesday and looks on track to sit out his first game of the season, leaving David Mayo as the top candidate to pick up defensive snaps in his stead. Thompson has posted 50 tackles (36 solo), two sacks and one forced fumble in 11 contests this season.
