Panthers Edge Brian Burns (wrist), DT Gerald McCoy (knee) and S Eric Reid (ankle) are all expected to play against the Jaguars today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. McCoy isn't much of an IDP option even when healthy. Reid managed just 1 limited practice this week and looks like a high-risk, low-reward fantasy play. Burns carries the most upside against a Jags offense allowing the league's 11th highest sack rate. Two of Jacksonville's past 3 opponents have notched 4+ sacks.

Recent Shark Bites

The Panthers have ruled DT Kawann Short (foot) and DE Yetur Gross-Matos (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. That can only help the matchup for QB Tom Brady and the rest of the Bucs offense.

Panthers S Eric Reid and DE Mario Addison (chest) are active for today's game against the Seahawks. He was a late addition to the injury report because of an illness but looks good to go for IDP lineups. Addison should start in most cases as well.

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.

Panthers CB Donte Jackson (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Buccaneers. S Eric Reid (ankle) and LB Shaq Thompson (ankle) are active after entering the day questionable. They should be OK to use in IDP lineups.

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.
