CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)

As if the Carolina Panthers don't have enough problems, they'll be without four starters against the Atlanta Falcons.

Running back Jonathan Stewart, wide receiver Brandon LaFell, strong side linebacker James Anderson and defensive tackle Dwan Edwards won't play for the Panthers.

Carolina (3-9) has already placed 13 players on injured reserve. Quarterback Jimmy Clausen, guard Jeff Byers and offensive tackle Bruce Campbell are also inactive.

Running back Michael Turner and cornerback Asante Samuel are active and will start for the Falcons after being listed as questionable.

Atlanta's only key inactive is safety William Moore. Chris Hope will start in his place.

Other inactives for the Falcons are quarterback Dominique Davis, wide receiver Time Toone, guards Halrand Gunn and Phillipkeith Manley and defensive linemen Lawrence Sidbury and Travian Robertson.
