The Carolina Panthers sent players home Monday after what coach Matt Rhule called a “somewhat significant” number of positive COVID-19 tests.

The Panthers are scheduled to return to the team facility on Wednesday to resume preparing for their Week 17 game at New Orleans.

The Panthers (5-10) lost their fifth straight game on Sunday, falling 32-6 to the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Carolina began the day Monday with seven active players and one practice squad player on the reserve/COVID-19 list: Matt Barkley, Dennis Daley, Pat Elflein, Sam Franklin Jr., Azur Kamara, Rashaan Melvin, Brandon Zylstra and Austin Larkin (practice squad).
