CHARLOTTE, N.C. -  The Carolina Panthers are back in action at Bank of America Stadium Sunday afternoon. Carolina hosts Seattle in another must win situation for the Panthers.

At 1-3, the Panthers are coming off a 30-28 road loss back in week four at Atlanta. Seattle dropped a 19-13 decision to the Rams last week and currently sit at 2-2. The game marks the return of Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson to North Carolina. Wilson spent last year at Wisconsin, but previously starred for North Carolina State.

On the injury front, linebacker Jon Beason and cornerback Chris Gamble are listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup. Beason is suffering from a knee injury, Gamble from shoulder issues. Rookie linebacker Luke Kuechly could get the start at middle linebacker if Beason can't go.

Sunday's game is the last for the Panthers before a bye week. Carolina will return to the field two weeks from today, when they host the Dallas Cowboys.
