Panthers minus DE Johnson, two other starters for Miami game
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)
Johnson, who has 8 1-2 sacks this season and 21 sacks in his last 23 games, missed his third straight day of practice Friday with a sprained knee suffered in Carolina's win against the New England Patriots Monday night.
Starting right guard Chris Scott will miss his third straight game with a knee injury and starting linebacker Chase Blackburn will miss his second consecutive game with a foot injury. Backup tight end Ben Hartsock (knee) is also out.
Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy returned to practice Friday and is listed as probable.
