"He had a good day in the protocol, and that's all I know", Rivera said at a post-practice press conference. "We'll see what that means tomorrow". Tampa Bay has had a bad time stopping their opponent.

"He's been progressing through the protocol", Rivera said.

Doug Martin (hamstring), Charles Sims (knee), Robert Ayers (ankle), Gerald McCoy (calf) and Clinton McDonald (hamstring) are all listed as doubtful. Now 1-3 and having recently dropped their first divisional game to Atlanta, the Panthers prepare for a Monday night game, without their starting quarterback Cam Newton. They handed the ball off to Rodgers on the first six plays of the game, and Rodgers had 62 rushing yards before the end of the first quarter. While these players generally come with pretty low floors in the fantasy game, there is always the chance that you hit the jackpot and find a player who lights up the scoreboard. He sat out practice all week after taking a helmet hit from Atlanta linebacker Deion Jones while trying to get into the endzone for a two-point conversion. While Newton scored, he suffered a concussion on the play. Newton stayed in and completed that game despite a ferocious blow to the head.

The Panthers also will be without starting left tackle Michael Oher (concussion), running back Jonathan Stewart (hamstring), cornerback James Bradberry (toe) and defensive tackle Vernon Butler (ankle).

Carolina, a year removed from a 15-1 regular season and a Super Bowl berth, is reeling and looking to right the ship after watching the Falcons (3-1) score 48 points at home and take a two-game lead in the NFC South.

The Panthers won't truly get a do-over for their 48-33 loss at Atlanta last week (though they will eventually get a rematch), but the good news is that each week in the National Football League brings a chance at redemption. Now, they'll turn to veteran passer Anderson in hopes of turning their 2016 season around. "We were going to try to do some stuff (Friday), but the field was wet".

The Panthers' struggles have mirrored those of the Arizona Cardinals.

Lawrence was the sacks leader for Dallas with eight previous year.

In six seasons, he's missed just two games, excluding his forthcoming absence on Monday night due to a concussion.

PATS ALSO ACTIVATE NINKOVICH: In addition to activating quarterback Tom Brady off the exempt list Saturday after his "Deflategate" suspension, the New England Patriots officially put defensive lineman Rob Ninkovich - who was suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs - back on the roster.
