It may be particularly important that receiver DJ Moore is available for the Carolina Panthers this Sunday . . . for more reasons than just receiving.

On Friday, the team announced they placed third-string quarterback Matt Barkley on the reserve/COVID-19 list. With Barkley being a close contact to both Cam Newton and P.J. Walker, that development may obviously put Carolina’s ongoing quarterback carousel into more of a spin.

If Newton and/or Walker are somehow not available as a result, head coach Matt Rhule identified Moore, running back Reggie Bonnafon and fellow wideout Brandon Zylstra as potential emergency options for the Week 15 matchup with the Buffalo Bills.

Ho boy.

Moore, as he did all week, hit the practice field on a limited basis and is listed as questionable for the contest. Here’s the final report in its entirety:

Bouye, who did not practice at all for the past three days, has already been ruled out. With Donte Jackson already done for the campaign, Bouye’s absence will likely spark more playing time for 2020 first-round pick and midseason acquisition CJ Henderson.
