CHARLOTTE -- Quarterback's not going to be the only spot where the Carolina Panthers are really old and really young.
They're also going to be on both ends of the spectrum at defensive end, since Julius Peppers is listed as doubtful for tonight's game.
Peppers has been held out of practice all week, after spraining his right knee in last week's win over Seattle.
Without him, the Panthers would use the combination of rookie Charles Johnson and second-year sub Stanley McClover opposite veteran Mike Rucker.
Otherwise, the injury news was good, since safety Chris Harris (hip) practiced, and is listed as probable.
He had missed at least parts of the previous two days. The other five guys listed on the report Friday were all probable after practicing fully: Rucker (illness), wide receiver Steve Smith (illness), quarterback Vinny Testaverde (Achilles) and offensive linemen Geoff Hangartner (shoulder) and Justin Hartwig (center).
The Panthers also finalized the paperwork on a roster move, putting wideout Keary Colbert (knee) on injured reserve and promoting Jason Carter from the practice squad.
