Inside The Panthers:
Another Panthers linebacker is missing another game due to injury.
Let's hope the team's linebackers didn't all eat the fish on the charter flight ("Airplane" reference, kids, Google it).
Weakside linebacker Omar Gaither, who reinjured his knee last week at Detroit, did not make the trip to Indy today and will miss Sunday's game against the Colts. Jordan Senn will start for Gaither.
Backup LB Jason Phillips (calf) also stayed in Charlotte. Phillips has not played since the bye week.
No. 2 WR Legedu Naanee (Achilles tendinitis) is here, but remains questionable.
TE Jeremy Shockey (ribs) was added to the injury report as probable. Shockey, who missed the Detroit game, was full participation at practice all week and is expected to play.
