The Carolina Panthers have released their injury report for this week and it contains mostly good news for once. The headline item is, of course, offensive tackle Greg Little’s full participation in practice. He hasn’t fully practiced since Week 4. He has now officially cleared the concussion protocol. Way to go, Greg.

Little’s clearing of the protocol comes just in time as his backup, Dennis Daley, has not practiced this week while nursing a groin injury. The Panthers look like they will be able to avoid starting Daryl Williams at left tackle against a suddenly red hot Atlanta pass rush. We’ll see what they actually do on Sunday.

The rest of the news isn’t exactly new. The Panthers have swapped concerns over cornerback James Bradberry for concerns over his partner in crime, Donte Jackson, and their third corner, Ross Cockrell. Jackson is expected to be available this weekend, but there is no further word on Cockrell.
