Panthers' Injury Report: Thursday

Thanks to the schedule, the Carolina Panthers got an extended break between Week 9 and Week 10. The rest did them good with only five players listed on today's injury report.

  • The extended break between Week 9 and Week 10 (10 days) couldn't have come at a better time as the Panthers are the healthiest they have been since almost the start of the season.
  • The offensive line looks to benefited the most with only rookie guard Trai Turner listed on the report. One player who isn't is Amini Silatolu, who should take over his left guard position. This means Andrew Norwell would likely move to right guard. If this happens, I would expect a much better performance from this group against Philadelphia then they have shown the past few weeks.
  • Cornerback Bene Benwikere was not able to practice again today due to the ankle injury. The defense really needs to get him back because right now he is the team's best nickel cornerback. I would imagine that the Eagles will look to run plenty of three wide receiver sets with Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Jordan Matthews. This could create some serious match-up problems for Carolina.
