Panthers S Pugh won't play because of headaches

Share This Story



Panthers safety Jordan Pugh, who was expected to start for the injured Charles Godfrey Saturday, will not play after developing a headache during pre-game warmups team spokesman Charlie Dayton said.

That means undrafted rookie Jonathan Nelson, who was called up from the practice squad Friday, will get the start and see his first NFL action. The Panthers had only three safeties on the roster prior to calling up Nelson from the practice squad.

Pugh wasn't listed on the team's injury report this past week.

He did take a shot to the head last week in a win over the Texans but participated in practice all week.
