Week 2 Inactives: Rashaan Gaulden won't play vs. Tampa Bay


CHARLOTTE -- Defensive back Rashaan Gaulden will miss Thursday night's game against the Bucs with a groin injury.

Gaulden serves as Carolina's big nickel in addition to providing depth at safety and contributing on special teams. He was questionable entering the game. With Gaulden down, undrafted rookie linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk will have the chance to make his NFL debut on special teams.

Rookie offensive tackle Greg Little is along among the inactives. Little cleared the concussion protocol, but he is inactive for the second straight week. Ditto for defensive tackle Vernon Butler, who is a healthy scratch once again.
