Week 14 Wednesday Injury Report: O-line questions


CHARLOTTE — The Panthers are running with some new combinations on the offensive line in practice, which is something they've gotten almost accustomed to.

The Panthers were without starting three regular offensive linemen in practice Wednesday, which opens the door for a ninth unique combination of starting blockers in 13 games entering this week's against the Falcons.

Starting guards John Miller (ankle) and Michael Jordan (hamstring) did not participate in Wednesday's practice because of injuries.

Trent Scott, who replaced Miller in the starting lineup for four games, is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, along with outside linebacker Frankie Luvu. Neither was at practice Wednesday. Players who are vaccinated are eligible to return as soon as they have two negative tests with 24 hours between them, as long as they remain asymptomatic.

It's unclear what those absences are going to do to the lineup.

Left tackle Cameron Erving has been designated to return from IR, and he's practicing, but he would need to be activated if he's going to play this week.

That still leaves them short on guards, and the Panthers have choices including Dennis Daley, Brady Christensen, and Deonte Brown on the active roster.

They promoted practice-squad offensive lineman Austen Pleasants in Miami before the bye, and have some other options on the practice squad as well. Mike Horton was promoted in Week 10 for the Arizona game, and they also have Aaron Monteiro and Patrick Omameh on the practice squad.

The only other absence from practice Wednesday was veteran defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, but that was not for injury-related reasons.
