Panthers LBs Thomas Davis (hamstring) and Shaq Thompson (foot) are active for today's game against the Saints. Both defenders entered the day questionable. Davis has been a mediocre IDP option even when healthy and playing full time this year, so don't expect either to be much of an IDP factor. There is tackle upside, at least, against this year's run-driven Saints offense.
Panthers LB Thomas Davis (hamstring) and LB Shaq Thompson (foot) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Davis missed Wednesday's practice but returned for the past 2. Thompson put in limited practices all week. Expect both to play, but neither is a significant IDP factor. We'll still confirm their statuses Sunday morning.
Panthers S Kurt Coleman (knee) and MLB Luke Kuechly (concussion) are active for today's game against the Buccaneers. Coleman missed the past 3 games with a ligament sprain. Kuechly cleared the concussion protocol this week after missing last Sunday's loss to the Bears.
Panthers DE Mario Addison (knee) and Julius Peppers (shoulder) are active for today's game at Detroit. Both pass rushers entered the day questionable after barely practicing during the week. It's a common scenario for Peppers, who should be used as normal. Addison carries a bit more risk but faces a better individual matchup. As the starting right DE, Addison will get Lions LT Greg Robinson (rather than RT Rick Wagner). Pro Football Focus grades Robinson 65th among 66 qualifying OTs.
Panthers DE Mario Addison (knee) and DE Julius Peppers (shoulder) are both questionable for Sunday's game at Detroit. Addison returned to a limited practice Friday after missing the 1st 2 days. Peppers sat out all 3 days of workouts. We'll check on their statuses Sunday morning. Each carries obvious risk as an IDP option.
