The Carolina Panthers have ruled Steve Smith and Jon Beason out while Thomas Davis will play in Sunday night's game against the New York Jets.
Preseason game No. 3 means the starters who are in the lineup will be on the field into the second half.
The Panthers are looking to build off their Week 2 win over Miami, and with guys like Smith and Beason on the sidelines, Head Coach Ron Rivera says those players hitting the field will be expected to carry the load.
Watch the video as Rivera talks about what his team needs to improve on heading into the game against the Jets.
