CHARLOTTE — The Panthers entered the final week of the season with a small number of health concerns, though one starter was out because of injury.
Defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis (back) was held out of practice Wednesday.
Otherwise, there were only five other names on the report, and that includes veteran right tackle Taylor Moton getting his routine rest day, and tight end Ian Thomas who was out for personal reasons (not injury related).
The Panthers trail the all-time series against the Saints, 27-29. Carolina has played New Orleans more than any other team in its history.
