Panthers vs Vikings Thursday injury report: Greg Olsen practices again, Tyler Larsen and Shaq Thompson sit out again

New, comments

The Panthers are hopeful their star tight end will be able to make an impact against the Vikings on Sunday.

The Panthers were back on the field today in preparation for their game this Sunday against the Vikings, and only two players sat out today’s practice - Tyler Larsen and Shaq Thompson. We’ll need to keep an eye on those two tomorrow, because if they miss tomorrow’s practice their status for Sunday’s game could be in danger.

Everything else in today’s practice went pretty much as expected.

Greg Olsen practiced again today, which is good. He appears to be ready to play on Sunday. Julius Peppers and Mike Adams were back on the field after getting the day off yesterday due to being a combined 74 years old established veterans.

Kaelin Clay, Thomas Davis, Ryan Kalil and Cam Newton were limited again, but should all be available on game day.

Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffrey were full participants again, as expected. They’ll both suit up on Sunday, as expected.
