Roosters: Jared Waerea-Hargreaves successfully challenged his dangerous contact charge at the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night and has been cleared to play.
There are no other further changes expected by the Roosters with new recruit Dale Copley slotting straight onto the wing following the loss of Josh Morris (hamstring) for at least five weeks.
The Roosters have scored 114 points in their past three games at Suncorp Stadium.
Panthers: Nathan Cleary's chances of coming into the 17 this week are firming, according to playmaking partner Jarome Luai, and after the star halfback was named in the reserves, a final call will be made on Friday.
With Stephen Crichton (contrary conduct) accepting a one-week ban, Paul Momirovski comes into the centres where he will partner Kurt Capewell.
New recruit Tevita Pangai jnr makes his Panthers debut on the interchange with rookies Izack Tago and J'maine Hopgood relegated to the extended bench.
Mitch Kenny drops to the interchange to make way for Api Koroisau while Scott Sorensen fills the second-row hole left by Capewell to accommodate Isaah Yeo's return.
The Panthers have won their past three games against the Roosters.
