Of course Ken Crawley and Emmanuel Sanders are not on the list. The are on Covid-19 reserve and will be unavailable.
WR Michael Thomas (Ankle/Hamstring), G Nick Easton (concussion), S D.J. Swearinger, DL Malcolm Roach, and OL Derrick Kelly, are inactive for the Saints. At this point I don’t even know if the Ankle is even a factor with Thomas. Drew Brees will be forced, and is one of the best at, to spread the ball around to relatively unknown receivers.
Inactive for the Panthers are QB Will Grier, CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver, RG John Miller,OL Mike Horton, and WR Marken Michel.
Missing last week against the Bears WR Curtis Samuel, CB Donte Jackson (Toe) and CB Eli Apple (Hamstring) will be active to both give our secondary problems as well as try to contain Mr. Brees.
