  • The short week will not help the Carolina Panthers, especially with how many injuries they are dealing with. The Panthers have four starting offensive linemen on the injury report (Byron Bell, Nate Chandler, Amini Silatolu, and Trai Turner). The biggest loss will certainly be the two tackles against New Orleans. Bell and Chandler are not exactly great but they are certainly much better than the other options for the Panthers.
  • Another big loss against the Saints would be if safety Thomas DeCoud can't go. He suffered a hamstring injury against Seattle and has not been able to get on the practice field this week. Carolina's defense needs the play of DeCoud, especially going up against a prolific passer like Drew Brees.
  • For the first time since Week 4, running back DeAngelo Williams has been able to get on the practice field on a limited basis. If the Panthers offense is able to get back the one-two punch of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, it will be a huge boost and hopefully will equal points on the scoreboard.
