CINCINNATI — Panthers cornerback Donte Jackson is going to play today against the Bengals, after testing his injured ankle in an extended pregame workout.
He was listed as questionable on the injury report this week, after leaving last week's game with the persistent issue. He hasn't practiced much in recent weeks as they manage his condition, but he's also been on the field and made plays, with an interception last week against the Falcons.
He was the only real question leading into declaring the inactives Sunday, as four of the six players down for today's game with the Bengals already ruled out.
Between running back Chuba Hubbard (ankle), safety Juston Burris (concussion), wide receiver Rashard Higgins (illness), and tight end Stephen Sullivan (illness), the bulk of the list was known before the team left Charlotte on Saturday.
The Panthers promoted two other players from the practice squad for the week to cover some depth issues.
Safety Marquise Blair and running back Spencer Brown got standard elevations on Saturday to add them to the game-day roster.
Players get three elevations per season, and this is Blair's third (he was also promoted in Week 4 and Week 5) and Brown's second (he was active last week against the Falcons).
