  • The Panthers have a short week thanks to the game on Monday night. The long list of players on the injury report isn't too surprising as some, like Roman Harper, were just given an extra day of rest.
  • One positive that came from practice today was rookie guard Trai Turner able to fully participate in practice. It will be interesting to see which two guards will get the start on Sunday between Amini Silatolu, Andrew Norwell and Turner.
  • The other positive from practice today was cornerback Bene Benwikere able to go through some of practice. This was the first time he was able to get on the practice field since Week 5. The Panthers have sorely missed Benwikere at the nickel position.
