                   === Panthers DE Johnson out for Sunday ===
 
 Charlotte,  NC  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Carolina Panthers defensive end Charles
 Johnson has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
 
 Johnson,  who sprained his knee during Monday night's win over the New England
 Patriots, hasn't missed a game since the 2011 regular season finale.
 
 Johnson has 8 1/2 sacks this season for the league's third-ranked defense.
 
 Linebacker  Chase  Blackburn (foot),  tight end Ben  Hartsock (knee) and guard
 Chris Scott (knee) have also been ruled out.
 
 Defensive  end Greg  Hardy, who missed Thursday's practice with a knee injury,
 returned to practice fully Friday and is probable for Sunday's tilt.
