The Carolina Panthers took to the practice fields for the first time in preparation for Super Bowl 50 on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos are waiting an extra day before beginning their on-field work for the final game of the 2015 season.
Eight total players are listed on the official injury report for the Panthers.
Linebacker Thomas Davis (forearm), defensive end Charles Johnson (knee), center Ryan Kalil (knee) and running backs Jonathan Stewart (ankle), Mike Tolbert (knee) and Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) did not take part in Wednesday’s practice.
Cornerback Robert McClain (ankle) and defensive tackle Kawaan Short (knee) were limited.
One player not listed on the report was defensive end Jared Allen, who missed last week’s NFC Championship game with a foot injury.
Even though the Broncos didn’t practice, they were required to submit an injury report estimating practice participation.
Safety Shiloh Keo (quadriceps), guard Evan Mathis (ankle), safety Darian Stewart (knee), guard Louis Vasquez (knee) and safety T.J. Ward (ankle) would not have practiced for Denver.
Eight other players are listed on the injury report but would have been full participants: safety Josh Bush (shoulder), tight end Owen Daniels (knees), linebacker Todd Davis (shoulder), cornerback Chris Harris (shoulder), quarterback Peyton Manning (foot), linebacker Brandon Marshall (ankle) and linebacker DeMarcus Ware (knee).
