Carolina has also listed wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, defensive end Charles Johnson, and running back Jonathan Stewart as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. New Orleans has brought in veteran cornerbacks Sterling Moore and B.W. Webb since the regular season began. They share one thing in common this week.
