The Panthers linebacker had a ‘cleanup’ procedure on Thursday.
Shaq Thompson will play 14 games for the fifth consecutive season as he will not play in Week 17.
The Panthers will be without Shaq Thompson this week, but Curtis Samuel (questionable) is expected to play.
Plus, Vernon Butler missed practice. If Shaq Thompson isn’t able to go, expect to see a lot more of second-year ‘backer Jermaine Carter, Jr.
The injury report isn’t very exciting in Week 16, but you know what is? WILL GRIER’S FIRST NFL START!
Mario Addison is also questionable, but the Panthers will be without their veteran tight end Greg Olsen for Week 15.
