NFL experts aren’t worried about the Patriots injury report
Belichick will have his top cornerback on the field on Sunday. He joined his teammates for practice on Friday and the Patriots didn’t list him as questionable for the game. Jackson missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He was full participant in Friday’s session. The Patriots really need him for the game against the Panthers. Jonathan Jones won’t be playing with the team and having Jackson back is definitely a big deal.
Jackson has three interceptions with 10 passes defended so far in the regular season. In the game against the Los Angeles Chargers, he saw 90 percent of the Patriots’ defensive snaps. Jackson had 91 percent of the Patriots defensive snaps in the regular season.
When it comes to the Panthers, they have three questionable players for the game. Quarterback Sam Arnold saw limited action in Friday’s session. He suffered a concussion and a right shoulder injury. The Panthers limited him in all three practice sessions this week. Will he take the field on Sunday? Maybe P.J. Walker will get a chance to show off.
