CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers have downgraded receiver Brandon LaFell from probable to questionable for their game against Tampa Bay because of a sore hamstring.

The Panthers made the move Saturday after their final walkthrough before Sunday's home opener.

LaFell missed practice on Wednesday, but participated in workouts the next two days. The third-round pick started Carolina's loss to the New York Giants last Sunday and had two catches for 22 yards.

Dwayne Jarrett would likely start against the Buccaneers if LaFell can't play.
