Week 6 Game Status: Panthers Rule Out Bell and Sanders

The injury bug keeps biting deeper for the Carolina Panthers. They travel to Miami looking for their first win and will have to do so without another pair of starters. On Friday the team ruled out starting safety Vonn Bell (quadriceps) and starting running back Miles Sanders (shoulder). They join safety Xavier Woods (hamstring), guard Chandler Zavala (neck), and tight end Giovanni Ricci (shoulder).

Starting linebacker Brian Burns and starting defensive tackle Derrick Brown are listed as questionable. Both returned to practice on Friday after being held out on Thursday. Tight end Ian Thomas (calf) is also questionable after being limited on Friday.

Sanders absence clears the way for Raheem Blackshear to be active on Sunday after being a healthy scratch after Week One.
