New England Patriots cornerback J.C. Jackson missed his second consecutive practice Thursday, putting his status for Sunday’s matchup with the Carolina Panthers in question.

Jackson, New England’s No. 1 corner, is dealing with an illness, according to the team’s injury report. The 25-year-old has played in every game over the past three seasons.

Third-year pro Joejuan Williams would be the top candidate to fill Jackson’s spot in the starting lineup if the latter cannot play against Carolina.

There were no changes to the Patriots’ injury report Thursday, with the same 11 players limited in the team’s second practice of Week 9.
