Inactives: Panthers vs. Giants

181007_byrd

CHARLOTTE -- The Panthers' improved health coming out of the bye week led to some difficult decisions for their inactives list against the Giants.

With only tight end Greg Olsen (foot) and special teams standout Jared Norris (toe) out because of injuries, cornerback Corn Elder was among the healthy scratches. The decision to have recently promoted cornerback Josh Hawkins active for a second consecutive game and the addition of safety Eric Reid left Elder without a jersey this week.

The Panthers are going with six receivers with the return of Curtis Samuel (medical illness) and Damiere Byrd (knee) to practice this week. They will inject speed in the game, possibly in the return game in addition to some receiver snaps, though there will only be so many to go around.

The Giants, as expected, are without tight end Evan Engram and linebacker Olivier Vernon.
