Well, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton just got a little ray of hope in his quest to put up a sequel to his historic first-game performance when he goes up against the Green Bay Packers' defense in Week 2 — cornerback Tramon Williams is out with a shoulder injury and will be replaced by Sam Shields. Of course, there's still the matter of Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson, and the rest of that defense, but you take what you can get.

The featured inactives for early games are below, including Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Jason Hill, who trash-talked New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis during the week … and is out with a hip injury after being listed as doubtful through the week. Way to represent, kid!

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis (calf), Washington Redskins S LaRon Landry (hamstring), Chicago Bears WR Roy Williams (groin), New Orleans Saints CB Tracy Porter (calf), Oakland Raiders TE Kevin Boss (knee), Oakland Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (knee), Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (shoulder).
