Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - The Carolina Panthers announced Friday that running back Kenjon Barner, safety Quintin Mikell and cornerback D.J. Moore will miss Sunday's contest against the New York Giants.

The Panthers also ruled out cornerback Josh Thomas for the Week 3 contest later in the day due to a concussion he sustained in last week's 24-23 loss at Buffalo. The third-year pro had been initially listed as questionable and cleared for contact, but the team decided to sideline him for precautionary reasons.

Barner, who rushed for 1,767 yards and 21 touchdowns with Oregon last season and was a sixth-round pick of Carolina in this year's draft, once again did not practice all week and has yet to play thanks to a sprained ankle suffered in the preseason.

Mikell also did not set foot on the practice field thanks to an ankle injury, and neither did Moore thanks to a knee issue.

Defensive tackle Dwan Edwards, who is battling through a thigh issue, has been listed as questionable despite not having practiced at all this week. Should he not be able to go, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Colin Cole will start in Edwards' place, but rookie Kawann Short would see some snaps.

Carolina also proclaimed cornerback James Dockery (thumb/shoulder) as questionable.

Five players, including linebacker Jon Beason -- who took full reps on Wednesday and Friday after sitting out Thursday -- were deemed probable.
