  • The Panthers got some good news today as they got two of their running backs back on the field, Jonathan Stewart and Darrin Reaves. This was Stewart's first practice since last Wednesday and is a good sign for his chances Sunday. The addition of Stewart will be a big boost to this offense.
  • Defensive end Charles Johnson was added to the injury report today as he missed practice with a hip injury. Hopefully this isn't serious with Johnson coming off his best game of the season last Sunday against the Bears.
  • The Panthers were once again without two of their top cornerbacks today with Josh Norman and Bene Benwikere missing practice. It will be interesting to see if either is able to practice tomorrow and shed some light on their availability for Sunday.
