We’re a week away from the final official injury report of the year, and the Panthers seem to be in pretty good shape heading into Super Bowl 50.
On the report the team released today, seven players are listed as questionable for Super Bowl 50, including linebacker Thomas Davis, who had surgery Monday to put a plate and “11 or 12” screws in his broken right arm.
Running back Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and fullback Mike Tolbert (knee) were the other 50-50s who didn’t participate in Friday’s final practice in Charlotte. Four other players were listed as being limited in practice: Defensive end Charles Johnson (knee), center Ryan Kalil (knee), defensive tackle Kawann Short (knee) and running back Fozzy Whittaker (ankle).
Three other players were listed as probable. Veteran defensive tackle Dwan Edwards was listed as not injury related, while wide receiver Philly Brown (ankle) and cornerback Robert McClain (ankle) all fully participated in Friday’s work.
There’s a significant amount of veteran maintenance on that list, but the fact defensive end Jared Allen (foot) wasn’t listed seems like an encouraging sign.
