    04/27/16WRKelvin BenjaminKneePROBABLEBenjamin (knee) expects to be a full participant in training camp this season, The Associated Press reports.

    Benjamin is still working his way back from the torn ACL he suffered in training camp last year, but seems poised to be 100 percent by the time camp rolls around this year. Although he's still limited in some of his offseason workouts, Benjamin expects to be a full participant this summer, which would enable the Panthers to fully incorporate their No. 1 wideout back into their offense.

    04/27/16DBBene' BenwikereLegPROBABLEBenwikere suffered a lower leg fracture during Sunday's game against the Falcons, ruling him out for the remainder of this season.

    Benwikere's injury raises a significant concern for the Panthers' secondary, as he not only started Carolina's past four games at outside cornerback, but he's also proven to be an excellent nickelback. With such versatility, the second-year Benwikere registered 59 tackles, nine passes defended and one sack this season. With veteran Charles Tillman (knee) sidelined recently, the Panthers may be in the market for further help to their secondary this week.

    04/27/16WRCorey BrownConcussionPROBABLEBrown left the Super Bowl with a concussion and will not return, according to CBS' broadcast of the game.

    Brown suffered his injury in the third quarter and was ruled out for good early in the fourth. He finished with four catches for 80 yards on seven targets, highlighted by an impressive 42-yard reception over two defenders. Brown's absence leaves the team with just three wide receivers -- Ted Ginn, Devin Funchess and Jerricho Cotchery.

    04/27/16LBThomas DavisArmPROBABLEDavis' broken arm is healing well, ESPN.com reports.

    Davis broke his right forearm during the Panthers' NFC Championship victory, but had surgery the next day and played through the subsequent pain just two weeks later in the Super Bowl. While Davis still has a metal plate in his arm and is unable to lift weights at the moment, he's been progressing well in his recovery, which has seen the pain in his arm subside. Although Davis still has to temper his offseason preparations, it appears he's on track to make a full recovery ahead of training camp.

    04/27/16WRStephen HillKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Panthers have re-signed Hill (knee) to a one-year deal.

    Hill, who would have become a restricted free agent otherwise, will now look to make his mark in the Carolina passing offense in 2016, but first he'll need to re-prove his health after missing last season after having suffered a torn ACL in training camp.

    04/27/16LBLuke KuechlyShoulderPROBABLEKuechly is on pace for a return after getting rid of the sling that aided in the immediate recovery from surgery on the partially torn labrum in his left shoulder, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports. "It's going to be a gradual process," Kuechly said. "Once everybody gets back I'll be able to do some stuff, but they are going to alter and modify what I can do. We have time so we might as well use the time."

    Kuechly suffered the ailment in the regular season finale but missed no time thereafter, whether it was practice or in game, and he proceeded to make history, returning an interception for a touchdown in back-to-back playoff games. In addition to the game-breaking plays against the Seahawks and Cardinals, he totaled 29 tackles, one sack, and one fumble recovery during the Panthers' three-game postseason run. As he proceeds through rehabilitation, Kuechly noted that he's avoiding weight-bearing exercises in favor of more cardio, namely "bike stuff and lower body stuff."

    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.

    04/27/16WRDevin HesterToeQUESTIONABLEHester (toe) still hasn't been cleared to run yet, ESPN.com reports.

    Hester underwent surgery on his right big toe in January, a procedure that coincided with a four-to-six month recovery timetable. Although he's approaching the four-month mark, Hester was been limited to jogging and ladder drills in offseason workouts thus far. At 33 years old, Hester is being cautious with his rehab, but also knows that if he's unable to return kicks as the season grows closer, his $3 million salary cap figure would make him a candidate to be cut, particularly with the Falcons drafting receiver/returner Devin Fuller over the weekend.
