NFL: Panthers to play Vikings in Charlotte Sunday, events continuing to be monitored


Carolina Panthers will play the Minnesota Vikings as scheduled on Sunday, the NFL says.

The NFL says,"we are monitoring events in Charlotte and have been in communication with local officials and authorities, and both the Carolina Panthers and the Minnesota Vikings."

The Carolina Panthers said earlier they were continuing to monitor events in regards to Sunday's game. 

WBTV reached out to the Carolina Panthers asking what the plan was for Sunday's game following unrest in Charlotte. 

The city has experienced unrest following the fatal shooting of Keith Scott.
