Omar Gaither out vs. Colts


Another Panthers linebacker is missing another game due to injury.

Let's hope the team's linebackers didn't all eat the fish on the charter flight ("Airplane" reference, kids, Google it).

Weakside linebacker Omar Gaither, who reinjured his knee last week at Detroit, did not make the trip to Indy today and will miss Sunday's game against the Colts. Jordan Senn will start for Gaither.

Backup LB Jason Phillips (calf) also stayed in Charlotte. Phillips has not played since the bye week.

No. 2 WR Legedu Naanee (Achilles tendinitis) is here, but remains questionable.

TE Jeremy Shockey (ribs) was added to the injury report as probable. Shockey, who missed the Detroit game, was full participation at practice all week and is expected to play.

Sheesh. How do we rank league wide in terms of number of missed games by starters?

Injuries have nothing to do with it. Green Bay had the most players on IR last year and they won the Super Bowl.

too say injuries had "nothing" to do with it is dumb. Yes the packers over came and won the SB but how many times did you hear people shocked that they did...they also didn't have a rookie team neither...we have all rookies even the staff.....the injuries took out most of our veteren players so i say they had something to do with it...are you really going to compare the Packers with the panthers.......

Will someone please have the Legedu so it keeps him off the field today.

If you have to explain a joke, it's not funny.

Ad: The difference is that good teams and good staffs overcome it. Ours aren't.
