CHARLOTTE — Left tackle Russell Okung (groin) was a full participant in Friday's practice, but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
"I'm hoping Russell can play just because he's our starter, and then we would go from there," head coach Matt Rhule said. "Coaches would make a determination off of practice. But Greg's been the backup left tackle, so I'd have full confidence in him, but I wouldn't want to say right now I'd want to go in this direction."
"We'll get them there and see if they feel good tomorrow and see if something changes on Sunday," Rhule said. "But if we played right now, they wouldn't play."
Though listed on the injury report earlier this week, defensive end Brian Burns (thigh), right guard John Miller (ankle/groin), and defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos (concussion) are all expected to play.
