Panthers Rule Out Two Players For Thursday Night Football

The Carolina Panthers have disappointed thus far in 2022, and even though they weren't expected to be one of the strongest teams in the NFC, they have enough talent to compete and win ball games, but even so, they've not been able to do so in 2022. Now, they'll matchup against their division rival Atlanta Falcons in Week 10, and if they have any slight hope left of making the playoffs this season, they'll have to do so with a big upset, as the Falcons lead the NFC South with a record of 4-5 thus far through nine weeks in 2022.

This one is a must-win game, so the last thing Carolina needed was to rule players out, but unfortunately, they've had to do so, with safety Juston Burris and receiver Rashard Higgins both officially ruled out for the contest, and with several other players questionable for the game, it could be the final nail in the hopes of the 2022 Carolina Panthers.

Sure, they've still got D.J. Moore and Brian Burns among other stars on this team, but with inadequate Quarterback play all season long to go along with inconsistent play, this team just hasn't been able to string anything together, and if they fall tomorrow, it's likely that they'll start turning their focus to the 2022 off-season and finding a new Head Coach.
