Injury news on Panthers, Falcons

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. –- Time for a couple of quick injury notes on the Falcons and Panthers.

Let’s start with the Panthers. They put right tackle Jeff Otah on the injured reserve list Tuesday afternoon. Otah had not played this season after having knee surgery in August.

With quarterback Matt Moore and middle linebacker Dan Connor already on injured reserve, the Panthers filled the three roster spots by claiming running back Andre Brown off waivers from Indianapolis, signing running back Josh Vaughn and linebacker Abdul Hodge.

With the rest of the NFC South off Tuesday, the Falcons practiced because they have a Thursday night game with Baltimore. Receiver Roddy White, center Todd McClure and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon did not participate. White and McClure are good possibilities for Thursday, coach Mike Smith said. Weatherspoon continues to sit with a knee injury and it seems likely he’ll miss another game.
