Carolina Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell is inactive against the Washington Redskins, a week after taking a shot to the head.
LaFell is third on the Panthers with 20 catches for 367 yards and a team-leading two touchdown receptions. Chicago Bears safety Chris Conte was fined $21,000 by the NFL for his hit on LaFell.
Louis Murphy is expected to start in LaFell's place against Washington.
Panthers defensive tackle Dwan Edwards is active Sunday after injuring an ankle against Chicago.
As expected, Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon is inactive for the sixth time this season because of a right foot injury.

TAKING IT PERSONALLY
Cam Newton and DeAngelo Williams say they were upset over the Redskins choosing to have their homecoming game against them.
The Officials in the Carolina Panthers-Washington Redskins game should not have blown a whistle during a DeAngelo Williams 30-yard touchdown run Sunday and they also shouldn't have rewarded the Panthers with the touchdown.
An official, who thought Williams went out of bounds blew an inadvertent whistle while Williams was at the Redskins 17-yard line and on his to the endzone...
Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith hasn’t had much to celebrate this year. The Panthers and QB Cam Newton have seriously regressed this year, but they finally were able to pick up their second win of the year and Smith was able to score his first touchdown this year. Perhaps this will signal a turn-around for the Panthers, so that they can try to salvage their season.Via: @cjzero

“I have to say this, because it’s been bothering me all day, and it’s probably going to bother me for some time,” said WIliams, per The Washington Post. “I got up this morning, I was feeling...
You can run, but you can't hide. Mistakes will always catch up with you, especially in a digital world with instant replay, so it is better to own up to them.
In the Week 9 Carolina-Washington game, there was an instance where the officiating crew was made to look foolish.
With 34 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams took the handoff...
DeAngelo Williams of the Carolina Panthers was none too pleased when he picked up the program for the home field Washington Redskins, and he has a valid point. Williams got a little extra motivation from the fact that the Washington Redskins listed the Panthers game as their “homecoming game.” Traditionally college and high schools will schedule an easy opponent for homecomings...
