CHARLOTTE — The Panthers will be without veteran defensive lineman DeShawn Williams this week, forcing them to adjust their rotations up front against the Saints.
Williams (knee) was declared out on Friday after missing his third straight day of practice.
The Panthers have just five linemen on the 53-man roster, which could point to another elevation for practice squad defensive end Chris Wormley.
Tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) is also out this week, as he hasn't cleared the protocol despite doing limited work each of the last three days while wearing a non-contact red jersey.
Bell missed last week's game, while Horn was on a pitch count after coming off a 10-week absence.
Five players are listed as questionable for the game, including center Bradley Bozeman (ankle), though he was a full participant Friday.
