The Carolina Panthers embarked on an early, Thanksgiving edition of practice for Thursday. And they did so without nine of their men.
Of that total, four players were out due to illness. Interim head coach Steve Wilks told reporters on Wednesday that a “bug” was going around the locker room.
Four more sat with injuries, including starting defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis. Ioannidis missed this past Sunday’s 13-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, which marked his second absence from the lineup this season.
Here’s the injury report in its entirety:
