The Carolina Panthers & New Orleans Saints issued their final injury report of the week for their Sunday matchup.

DOUBTFUL

S Rafael Bush (Ankle) / Did Not Practice

QUESTIONABLE

TE Josh Hill (Hamstring) / Limited
LB Keyunta Dawson (Calf) / Limited

PROBABLE

RB Travaris Cadet (Non Football Related) / Did Not Practice

We’re not exactly surprised to see Bush downgraded. He’s been bothered with that troublesome ankle injury, and again, it makes sense as to why the Saints signed S Eric Frampton, formerly of the Cowboys, this week in place of Chris Carr. I don’t doubt that Frampton will play this Sunday, but will likely see most of his action on Special Teams.

Speaking of the Safety position, Roman Harper completely fell off of the injury report, so that’s a great sign that he’s fully ready to go on Sunday.

As for the Panthers, it looks as though not many shocks for their injury report.

PROBABLE

T Jordan Gross (Not Injury Related) / Fully Practiced
TE Greg Olsen (Foot) / Fully Practiced 
G Travelle Wharton (Not Injury Related) / Fully Practiced
WR Steve Smith (Finger) / Limited
TE Brandon Williams (Hip) / Fully Practiced

OUT

RB Jonathan Stewart (Knee) / Did Not Practice

Despite a dislocated finger on Wednesday, Steve Smith has given every intention that he will play on Sunday.

As a reminder, we’ll get the full inactives list around 10:30AM-11:00AM CST for the game, so be sure to follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook, as we’ll stay on top of it as it breaks.
