Panthers' Charles Johnson: Nursing groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) practiced without limitations Friday, but he's still listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with Chicago, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Johnson was a new arrival on Friday's injury report, so this injury was likely sustained in practice. The veteran defensive end is listed as a starting defensive end, but he still shares snaps with Julius Peppers, especially in pass-rushing situations. Therefore, if Johnson can't go, expect to see Peppers increase his snap count, and Wes Horton will also be summoned more.

Panthers' Kurt Coleman: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (knee) practiced in full Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Coleman is in danger of missing his third straight game, but the full speed practice bodes well for his chances of playing Sunday. The Panthers could use him, too, since top backup Demetrious Cox (ankle) will be sitting out Sunday. Colin Jones and Jairus Byrd will take over the remaining snaps if Coleman can't go.

Panthers' Demetrious Cox: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (ankle) didn't practice Friday and won't suit up for Sunday's game against the Bears, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Cox is set to miss his third consecutive game, and the last time he played he racked up four solo tackles over 38 defensive snaps in New England. Expect Colin Jones and Jairus Byrd to continue to see an increase in snaps in Cox's absence.

Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whittaker (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Whittaker left a Week 5 matchup with Philly early, and he's still nursing his ankle a week later. The sixth-year running back rarely sees the field anyway with Jonathan Stewart and rookie first-round pick Christian McCaffrey above him in the depth chart. Expect Cameron Artis-Payne to pick up his leftover snaps.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Returns to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (shoulder) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Chicago, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

The Panthers have merely been limiting Newton's practice reps to avoid putting stress on his surgically repaired shoulder. The real concern involved Kelvin Benjamin (knee), who missed practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday. Fortunately for Newton, his top target returned to full participation Friday and is expected to play in Sunday's game against an underrated Bears defense.
