Jonathan Stewart, Ted Ginn, Kurt Coleman practicing for Panthers

The Panthers played without running back Jonathan Stewart, wide receiver Ted Ginn and safety Kurt Coleman in Week 17, but it looks like all three players are on track to return to the lineup this weekend.

Coach Ron Rivera said earlier this week that the team expected all three players to take part in practice when the team returned to the field and that prediction came true on Wednesday. The team will release a participation report later in the day, but the extended break since the end of the regular season and their presence at practice signal that they’ll be playing against the Seahawks come Sunday.

Stewart has been out of the lineup the longest for Carolina. He missed the final three games of the year with a foot injury and his return will be welcome as the team is expected to be without Fozzy Whittaker in the backfield this weekend. Ginn, who led the team with 10 receiving touchdowns, was out with a knee injury and Coleman was sidelined with a foot injury.

Whittaker was the only player absent from the portion of practice open to the media.

    Bad news for the Hawks. Keep pounding Panthers.

    No love for either team, but I’ve been calling Panthers 0-1 in the playoffs for months now. Sticking with it.

    Uh ohhh….somebody got healthy…

    Interestingly enough, out of the three, I think Coleman makes the biggest impact. The other two are just options for Cam, who is going to be the focus of Sea defense no matter who gets healthy.

    Coleman impacts what Sea wants to do offensively… so he’ll be the only that is actually impacting scheme.

    I came here because it was the only post related to this weekends games. That said I like seeing the best players on the field and hope every team gets back as many players as possible.

    Is there a way to have both teams lose?

    Seahawks are going to end the Panthers SB hopes this weekend.

    The only correct part of that statement was that you knew the Panthers would be in the postseason months ago.

    One week, one game, one win!

    KEEP POUNDING, GUYS!!!!!

    It should be a slugfest as it always is when these two teams play. May the best team win.

    Good, no excuses. Bookmarking any excuses made by Panthers fans before the game.

    Hawks stopped AD in subzero temps, you think that chump Stewart is a concern. Keep pounding? more like keep reaching suckas!

    It’s the playoffs so the Panthers can go ahead and stop pounding, and start making excuses.

    Of course they did. Minnesota has a bunch of janitors playing offensive line. The Panthers have 2 Prow Bowlers on their offensive line.

    Time for a change of guard in the NFC. This is no longer Seattle’s conference. Mr. MVP will play like the MVP on Sunday, book it.

    Panthers at home-
    Already beat the hawks on the road-
    Panthers healthy-
    Marshawn a lying joke-
    No J Graham for hawks-
    Bennet has to take on pro bowler Turner when he tries and interior
    stunt and he will be stopped-
    Panthers a 2.5 Vegas favorite-
    Cam is the MVP-
    Olsen is unstoppable-
    J stew would have been 2nd or 3rd leading rusher has he not missed 3
    Games-
    Panthers 15-1

    All equals a Panthers’ route 31-14
