Saints list no surprise inactives v. Panthers

The Saints did not list any surprise inactives ahead of their kickoff against Carolina at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday night.

DE Glenn Foster (ankle), DE/OLB Keyunta Dawson (calf) and S Rafael Bush (ankle) will miss the game with injuries, the Saints (9-3) said. All three missed practice this week and were listed as questionable.

No. 3 QB Ryan Griffin, backup CB Trevin Wade, backup T Terron Armstead and backup WR Nick Toon are healthy scratches for the Saints.

For Carolina (9-3), WR Tavarres King, WR Marvin McNutt, CB Josh Norman, RB Kenjon Barner, LB Jordan Senn, G Chris Scott and DE Frank Alexander are inactive.

Scott was ruled out with a knee injury. Senn had been doubtful with a hurt hamstring.

Whichever team wins the contest Sunday night will take a one-game lead in the NFC South with three dates left to play. The Saints face Carolina on the road on Dec. 22.
