New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston and star running back Alvin Kamara are listed as questionable to play in Sunday’s game against the host Carolina Panthers.

Winston (back, ankle) and Kamara (rib) were limited participants in practice all week.

Kamara, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, sat out last Sunday’s 20-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after recording nine carries for 39 yards in New Orleans’ 27-26 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in the season opener.

Winston, in his third season with the Saints and his second as their starting quarterback, has played in both games thus far but hurt his back in the season opener. His ankle injury was added to the injury report Wednesday.

Cornerback Paulson Adebo (ankle) is questionable to make his season debut against the Panthers.

Versatile jack-of-all-trades Taysom Hill (rib), right tackle Ryan Ramczyk (elbow) and safety Marcus Maye (rib) also were listed as questionable after recording limited practices throughout the week.

Cornerback Alontae Taylor (knee) was listed as out for the game after missing practice on Friday.
