12/17/17LBShaq Green-ThompsonFootOUTThompson (foot) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Thompson will miss his second consecutive game Sunday while he continues to battle plantar fasciitis. Safety Colin Jones saw an uptick in usage while Thompson was sidelined in last week's win over the Vikings and may be the main beneficiary for added snaps for as long as Thompson is out, as head coach Ron Rivera has preferred to use the team's depth linebackers mainly on special teams.

12/17/17CTyler LarsenFOOTQUESTIONABLELarsen (foot) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Larsen was listed as questionable but finished the week not practicing so this isn't overly surprising. It's the second consecutive missed game for the 26-year-old, and leaves the Panthers short on offensive line depth.

12/17/17GTrai TurnerCONCUSSIONOUTTurner (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Turner's head injury will keep him out of a game for the first time since the 2014 campaign. Amini Silatolu looks like the top candidate to fill in for Turner at right guard.

12/02/17DLCharles JohnsonSuspensionSUSPENDJohnson was handed a four-game suspension Friday for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Johnson's suspension will begin immediately, so he won't play in Sunday's game against the Saints and will also sit out the next three contests. That puts Johnson in line to return for the Panthers' Week 17 matchup with the Falcons, as well as any postseason action to follow. Mario Addison, Julius Peppers and Wes Horton could see heightened roles in the Panthers' defensive-line rotation while Johnson, who has just 16 tackles and no sacks on the season, is unavailable the next four weeks.

09/14/17DBL.J. McCrayUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEThe Panthers signed McCray to a reserve/future contract.

McCray didn't play in 2016 after playing with the 49ers in 2015. He'll compete for a role on special teams and as a depth safety with Carolina in 2017.

Sanchez injured his groin in the preseason finale. He'll likely revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers.
