The Vicks Injury Report looks a little better this week Panther fans. Though we have just as many players on the list the prognosis is much better for several key players. Returning to action this week is QB Jimmy Clausen, RB Jonathan Stewart and WR Brandon LaFell. It also looks like QBs Tony Pike and Brian St. Pierre will be available in spite of initial concerns about their throwing shoulders.

Key offensive lineman Marcus Hudson and back-up RBwith turf toe. That means another start for MacKenzie Bernadeau at LG, who didn't play too bad last week. LG seems to be his best position. Actually the offensive line overall had a pretty good game stat-wise. Also missing will be special teams ace
Powering through the pain this week is:
QB Jimmy Clausen - The kid gets the start and a fresh opportunity to prove he's the Panthers QB of the future
CB Captain Munnerlyn - Sat out a couple practices but was a full participant Friday. He will be needed to cover the slot and WR Josh Cribbs
WR Brandon LaFell - Hoping to pick up where he left off
QB Brian St. Pierre - It's been almost comical this week with BSP talking about his soreness after throwing more passes in 10 days than he did all year. Shows just how handcuffed the Panthers personnel department has been this season.
RB Jonathan Stewart - I'm looking for a big game from this guy who has barely gotten past 'go' in 2010.
The Panthers did not add anyone to Injured Reserve this week so no update in that regards.
