MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey and cornerback Dimitri Patterson are inactive against Carolina.

Nate Garner will again start for Pouncey, and Nolan Carroll will start for Patterson. Dolphins rookie cornerbacks Jamar Taylor and Will Davis, who have seen limited action this season, are both active.
Defensive end Charles Johnson (knee), linebacker Chase Blackburn (foot) and right guard Chris Scott (knee) are out for Carolina. Defensive end Greg Hardy (knee) is active.
