One of Carolina’s best defensive players currently remains on injured reserve, but it sounds like there’s a decent chance he’ll play in Sunday’s game against Baltimore.
Via multiple reporters, Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks said in his Friday press conference that Chinn could be a game-time decision. Carolina would need to make a roster move first to activate him.
Chinn has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in Week Four. He was designated to return on Nov. 8.
Chinn recorded 20 tackles, a tackle for loss, a sack, and two passes defensed in the season’s first four games.
Safety Myles Hartsfield (ankle) is doubtful.
