Week 2 Final Injury Report: Taylor Moton ready to play


CHARLOTTE — Panthers right tackle Taylor Moton remains on the injury report, but the news is good.

Moton was limited again Friday with a groin injury, but is not listed with a game status for Sunday's game against the Saints, so he's expected to play. He popped up on Thursday's report after feeling some tightness on the practice field.

Moton's played in every game in his career, and has started 49 consecutive games for the Panthers.

Guards John Miller (illness) and Pat Elflein (hip), defensive tackle DaQuan Jones (groin), safety Juston Burris (neck) are also good to go after being on the report earlier this week.

Jones was the only other player listed as limited Friday, and the rest were full participants.
