The Carolina Panthers enter their match up with the Washington Redskins relatively healthy, though did just recently lose offensive tackle Jeff Otah to a knee injury landing him on injured reserve. Otah is a loss on the Panthers line and they'll now need to replace their starting right tackle, who was also their best run blocker. Another notable player who missed practice was tight end Greg Olsen, who missed with a toe injury.
Defensively the Panthers are nursing more injuries to the linebacker position with Thomas Williams missing practice with a concussion and Omar Gaither missing with a knee injury. The Panthers are already light in the middle of the field, starting two rookies at defensive tackle and losing two starting linebackers for the year, so more injuries to the linebacking corps can't be good.
