- On Sunday against the Vikings, the Panthers are going to have a new starting right tackle however it will not Amini Silatolu. The former left guard had been receiving snaps at right tackle but missed the last two practices due to swelling in his knee. This has forced the team to turn to Mike Remmers, who has already been named the starter. He will be making his first career start against the Vikings.
- All in all, the Panthers are expected to be as healthy as they have been all season with the return of Bene Benwikere and Mike Tolbert. Aside from Amini Silatolu, defensive tackle Star Lotulelei is the only other player not expected to play. Defensive end Charles Johnson has been dealing with an illness but Coach Rivera is hopefuly he will be ready for Sunday.
