Josh Thomas DB CAR 2 Months
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he hasn't decided whether CB Josh Thomas will start in Thursday's night game against the Bucs.
Thomas was benched in the second half of Week 7 after getting beat twice deep. He'll likely be replaced by undrafted rookie Melvin White in the starting lineup and limited to a sub-package role this week. Thomas has struggled in pass coverage this season, but is currently the No. 6 corner in run support by Pro Football Focus. Perhaps the Panthers should consider a move to safety.

Panthers CB Josh Thomas took the majority of minicamp reps with the first-team defense.
With Captain Munnerlyn sidelined, Thomas has been the No. 2 corner behind Josh Norman. The Panthers have done very little to improve their secondary this offseason. Free agent pickup Drayton Florence is expected to see significant playing time in sub-packages.
