  • Carolina Panthers’ had the longest injury report of the season but this was due in large part to a number of players getting “vet days” or rest days. That group includes players like Roman Harper, Jonathan Stewart, Trai Turner and Kyle Love as the team’s website notes.
  • Even though defensive tackle Star Lotulelei missed the game against the Houston Texans, he looks like he is close to returning. He practiced in full on Wednesday, which was the first time since the beginning of training camp. He has been battling that foot injury for a while now and a full practice is a good sign that he should be available against the New Orleans Saints this week.
  • As expected, wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery did not practice Wednesday after suffering that high ankle sprain in Week 2. This is not really a surprise as he probably would have gotten the day off if he was healthy. It will be important to see if he is able to practice, and how much he does practice, the rest of the week.
  • Luke Kuechly was listed on the injury report as Did Not Practice however he did participate in some of the exercises during the warmups as Bryan Strickland wrote. Kuechly is still in the concussion protocol and this is one of the steps in that process.
