Jason Williams will start at weak-side linebacker in place of Thomas Davis (knee), but will be replaced by Thomas Williams on nickel downs.

Jon Beason is active at middle linebacker, and Jordan Senn gets the call on Carolina's all-important weak side. Captain Munnerlyn, with a two-game interception streak, will fill in for Gamble for a third straight game.
