Mario Addison and Wes Horton didn’t practice today, and Vernon Butler was limited. That’s three key defensive linemen the Panthers will need to suit up on Sunday, so hopefully they’re ready to go when the time comes. Because it’s a playoff game, I’d say their chances of playing are pretty good.
There was some good news in that Trai Turner and Kurt Coleman both practiced today. Hopefully they’ll be available for the Panthers on Sunday.

While he did practice, Trai Turner is still in the concussion protocol.
