CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers sack leader Charles Johnson will start Sunday's game against the New York Jets despite being listed as questionable on Saturday with the flu.

The defensive end leads the team with 9.0 sacks.

Johnson missed two games before last Sunday's 31-13 loss to New Orleans with a sprained right knee.
