CHARLOTTE — Defensive end Brian Burns was added to the injury report on Thursday as a limited participant.
Head coach Matt Rhule said Burns tweaked his groin during Wednesday's practice, but Rhule is confident Burns will face the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Linebacker Tahir Whitehead had an excused absence for personal reasons while the rest of the players who missed Wednesday ( Christian McCaffrey, Russell Okung, Ian Thomas and Stephen Weatherly) also sat out Thursday.
