Notes

  • The biggest surprise from the Carolina Panthers' injury report on Wednesday was that defensive end Jared Allen did not show up. He suffered a fracture in his foot against the Seattle Seahawks and missed the NFC Conference Championship Game against the Arizona Cardinals. The injury seems to be past him as he was a full participant and practiced without any limitations. This is a great sign for his availability next Sunday in the Super Bowl.
  • As expected, linebacker Thomas Davis did not practice on Wednesday as he suffered a broken forearm against the Cardinals and had surgery on Monday. The team will most likely keep him off the practice field all week to try and give him as much time as possible to heal and be as healthy as possible for the big game.
  • Another positive from the injury report was that safety Roman Harper was not on it. The safety missed the second half last week due to an injury suffered in the second quarter. Mark Inabinett of AL.com wrote that Harper said he lost vision in his right eye due a shift of his cornea flap but said shortly after the game that he started to get some vision back in that eye. He also said he took some medicine and should be good to go against the Denver Broncos.
