ATLANTA — The Panthers will go with Will Grier as their backup quarterback in Week 5.
Notably for Atlanta, wide receiver Julio Jones is inactive with his hamstring injury. He did not practice all week after playing only 15 snaps against Green Bay on Monday night.
Panthers defensive coordinator Phil Snow said that Jones's potential absence would affect how Carolina can play the run earlier this week.
"You start stacking the box, then you've got big' 11' out there that they're just going to throw the football to one-on-one," Snow said. "He affects the whole football game, so it does affect us."
Cornerback Eli Apple (hamstring) was declared out on Friday.
Below is the full list of inactives for both teams:
QB P.J. Walker
CB Eli Apple
CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver
G Dennis Daley
G Michael Schofield
WR Julio Jones
CB Jordan Miller
S Jaylinn Hawkins
T John Wetzel
