Notes

  • The Carolina Panthers got their starting running back Jonathan Stewart back on the practice field Thursday. However, the ankle injury is still a concern as he was limited. Ron Rivera has said that they are going to be cautious with him and ease him back. It is hard to imagine that Stewart won't be on the field Sunday.
  • Jared Allen also was back on the practice field Thursday after breaking a bone in his foot on Sunday. Ron Rivera said after practice that Allen looked pretty good, according to Panthers' Senior Writer, Bryan Strickland.

  • For the second straight day, Fozzy Whittaker was a full participant and should be available Sunday. This should be a boost for the run game if Stewart still has any effects from the ankle injury and the coaching staff wants to limit his workload. Defensive tackle Dwan Edwards also was a full participant after sitting out yesterday.
