CHARLOTTE — The Panthers placed one player on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, and activated another.
The Panthers placed running back Christian McCaffrey on the COVID list. He was already placed on injured reserve for the second time this year, and was out for the season anyway.
The Panthers also brought offensive lineman Trent Scott back from the reserve/COVID-19 list. He missed last week's game, but he's started four games at guard this year.
To make room for Scott on the roster, the Panthers waived tight end Colin Thompson.
The Panthers also protected four of their practice squad players, preventing other teams from signing them away. This week's protections including running backs Reggie Bonnafon and Spencer Brown, tight end Stephen Sullivan, and guard Patrick Omameh. Omameh and Bonnafon were promoted for last week's game.
