Patriots Injury Report: 13 players listed as questionable vs. Panthers


Thirteen players have been listed as questionable for the New England Patriots ahead of Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, though the team did have one notable player removed from its injury report Friday.

Cornerback J.C. Jackson, who had missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday due to an illness, returned to the field Friday and is expected to be a go. Two new players popped up on the report for the Patriots, including wide receiver N'Keal Harry and punter Jake Bailey with knee injuries. Bailey's injury is to his right knee, or his kicking leg.

For the Panthers, it remains unclear if the Patriots will face former New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold or former XFL passer P.J. Walker.

Darnold, who was listed as a limited participant Friday due to both a concussion and right shoulder injury, has thrown seven interceptions in his last five starts and hasn't thrown for more than 207 yards in any of his last four.
