Panthers put Rasul Douglas on reserve/COVID list, take two players off list


The Carolina Panthers have made three moves with the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Cornerback Rasul Douglas has been added to the list, while kicker Joey Slye and offensive lineman Trent Scott, were removed, and both are eligible to play this weekend.

This week's game at New Orleans is still scheduled for 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Douglas is the fifth player to be placed on the list in the past week, but is one of three players still on it. Offensive lineman Michael Schofield and Tyler Larsen remain on the list.

Douglas was claimed by the team in training camp and has started the past five games, where the Panthers have a 3-2 record in that span.

He has five pass deflections and 27 tackles.

Cornerback Eli Apple, who has missed a majority of the year with a hamstring injury, could see time in Douglas' absence, along with rookies Troy Pride Jr. and Stantley Thomas-Oliver III.
