  • As expected, the Carolina Panthers got their star middle linebacker Luke Kuechly back on the practice field Wednesday. He was cleared from the concussion protocol on Monday after missing the last three games. The team hopes to keep him on a snap count but that may not be possible as his replacement, A.J. Klein, is in the concussion protocol himself and has yet to be cleared.
  • The team only had two players sitting out entirely with defensive end Jared Allen missing due to a pinched nerve and backup tackle Daryl Williams continue to work his way back from a knee injury. Ron Rivera said during his press conference today that if Allen is not able to go, Kony Ealy and Wes Horton, will be the team's starting defensive ends.
  • The wide receiver position should be a little deeper heading into Seattle as Jerricho Cotchery was able to practice in full on Wednesday. He has been dealing with a high ankle sprain the past three weeks but looks ready to go. Early in the season, Cotchery was the most productive wide receiver for this team with four receptions, 45 receiving yards and one touchdown against the Jaguars.
