Some concern about the Carolina Panthers’ chances against the New Orleans Saints arose when starting right tackle Taylor Moton suddenly popped up on Thursday’s injury report. Well, we can probably put those worries to bed.

The Panthers returned an almost perfect final injury report on Friday, just two days ahead of their first divisional matchup of 2021. Although seven players remained listed, none were saddled with any type of game status designation. That suggests they’re all good to go.

Losing Moton, or even having him the least bit compromised, would’ve spelled even more trouble for Carolina, who’s already a clear underdog to New Orleans on Sunday. Being without your best offensive linemen on what’s still one of the worst units in the league, of course, is not ideal.

But, fortunately for the Panthers, that seems like it won’t be the case as they shoot for the upset at home.
