As noted on Friday, the Lions will missing three key players: tight end Michael Roberts (shoulder), defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson (ankle) and wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. (knee).

Additionally, Brandon Powell is a healthy scratch, meaning newly added Bruce Ellington or TJ Jones will be on return duties against the Panthers.

The Carolina Panthers will be missing a receiver of their own. Torrey Smith is out on Sunday with a knee injury, leaving the Panthers with Devin Funchess, rookie DJ Moore and Jarius Wright as their top three healthy receivers.
