The Panthers will get top CB James Bradberry (groin) back for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He returned to full practices Thursday and Friday, and Carolina left him off the final injury report. Bradberry missed last week. Donte Jackson (hip) is questionable for the game. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday. Third corner Ross Cockrell is out with a quad injury.
The Panthers have deemed LB Shaq Thompson (ankle), S Eric Reid (ankle) and CB Donte Jackson (groin) questionable for Sunday morning's game in London. Thompson and Reid both put in limited practices the past 2 days after beginning the week on the sideline. Jackson practiced the first 2 days but then was limited Friday. He missed the past 2 games with the groin injury and shouldn't be in IDP lineups. We'll check on the other 2 Sunday morning, when inactives for that game arrive at 8 a.m. ET.
The Panthers will face the Texans today without CB Donte Jackson (groin) and DT Kawann Short (shoulder). Both are inactive after entering the day questionable. Their absences ding a defense already facing 1 of the league's more high-powered offenses. DE Bruce Irvin will play for the first time this season. He also entered questionable with a hamstring injury. We'll see how his return affects the playing time of rookie Brian Burns. The rookie should be your IDP play for Week 4, though, in an upside spot.
