New Orleans Saints-Carolina Panthers Inactives

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The inactive list for the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers on Thursday night at Bank of America Stadium:

Saints: C Jonathan Goodwin, WR Nick Toon, FB Austin Johnson, LB David Hawthorne , CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, RB Pierre Thomas, RB Khiry Robinson.

Panthers: RB Fozzy Whittaker, OG Trai Turner, LT Byron Bell, OG Amini Silatolu, CB Bené Benwikere, WR Philly Brown, FS Thomas DeCoud.

The biggest news for the Panthers is DeCoud (hamstring) won’t play. That means rookie Tre Boston will get his first start at free safety against the NFL’s second-ranked pass offense.

Left tackle Byron Bell was ruled out on Wednesday, giving undrafted rookie David Foucault his first start.

For the Saints, Robinson was ruled out with his forearm injury after being listed as questionable. Thomas previously was ruled out with shoulder and rib injuries.

Also Thursday, the Saints promoted rookie linebacker/special teamer Todd Davis from the practice squad and released tight end Tom Crabtree.
