Week 8 Final Injury Report: Shaq Thompson questionable


CHARLOTTE — The Panthers will be without wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. again this week, but they could be a step closer to getting defensive leader Shaq Thompson back on the field.

Thompson was again listed as a limited participant in Friday's walkthrough, and he's questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Thompson has been out since Week 4 at Dallas, when he suffered and played through a foot injury.

Marshall (concussion) and reserve defensive end Darryl Johnson (hamstring) are listed as out for the game.

Thompson and cornerback CJ Henderson (shoulder) are listed as questionable, while none of the other players on the report were listed with any game status, meaning they're ready to go.

Center Matt Paradis (back) was limited Friday, but fullback Giovanni Ricci (concussion), left tackle Cameron Erving (neck), and offensive lineman Trent Scott (finger) were all full participants.
