Tight end Jeremy Shockey could be the latest Carolina Panther to miss a game with a concussion.
Shockey was held out of practice Wednesday and coach Ron Rivera says he will be reevaluated Thursday. Since Week 2, the Panthers have had one starter each week out with a concussion.
Offensive lineman Jeff Otah missed Carolina's second game, safety Charles Godfrey missed Week 3 and Sunday it was cornerback Chris Gamble.
Rivera says the team is ''just going through the concussion protocol'' with Shockey, who took a shot to the head on a field goal attempt in Sunday's loss to Chicago. The coach says ''we won't know more until Thursday morning'' on Shockey's status for Sunday's game against New Orleans.
Otah and Geoff Hangartner also missed Wednesday's practice with back injuries.
