The Panthers were back at it again on the practice field today to prepare for their season finale against the Falcons, and they got some good news in the form of right guard Trai Turner participated for the second straight day and is on track to suit up in Atlanta this Sunday.
As of today he’s still in the concussion protocol, but the fact that he’s participating in practice is a good sign that he’ll be ready to play this weekend.
Julius Peppers was the only DNP today, and it was a second straight vet day off for the defensive end.
Everyone who was limited in practice yesterday was a full participant today except for Kurt Coleman, Cam Newton and Trai Turner, so that’s good news. The Panthers should have a healthy squad come Sunday (well, as healthy as you can be in Week 17 anyway).
