    08/18/16DLKyle LoveHeadPROBABLELove appears to have cleared concussion protocol, ESPN's David Newton reports.

    Love was seen walking to practice Monday with his helmet in hand, indicating he's ready to return from last week's hit to the head. Having him available gives the Panthers another big body along their defensive front, where Kawann Short, Star Lotulelei and Vernon Butler lead the interior line options.

    07/31/16DLKony EalyHeadPROBABLEEaly was back on the practice field Thursday after dealing with a concussion since Saturday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    Ealy remained under the league's concussion protocol until Wednesday, but passed all necessary tests in order to return for Thursday's morning session. The issue appears to be in the past as the Panthers look forward to their first preseason game against the Ravens in one week.

    07/31/16DBLeonard JohnsonUndisclosedNFIJohnson began training camp on the active/non-football injury list with an Achilles injury.

    Johnson suffered the injury last season when he was with the Patriots but did not undergo surgery until this offseason. The cornerback can be removed from the list at any point and rejoin the team on the field. There will be plenty of reps for young Panthers' defensive backs to begin camp with Johnson and fellow corner Bene Benwikere (ankle) both on the sidelines.

    08/22/16DLRobert NkemdicheAnklePROBABLENkemdiche (ankle) will take part in individual drills at Monday's practice, Lisa Matthews of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    On Sunday, Tyrann Mathieu (knee), Justin Bethel (foot), and Frostee Rucker (foot) all made their first practice appearance of this term. Individual work was the expectation of each, but they also proceeded to participate in 11-on-11 drills. While only time will tell if Nkemdiche does the same, he's practicing earlier than expected, so it isn't out of the realm of possibility.

    08/20/16WRLarry FitzgeraldKneePROBABLEFitzgerald (knee) will be held out of Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    After overextending himself in Sunday's session, Fitzgerald has seemingly been given an ultimatum by head coach Bruce Arians. The effort to avoid an aggravation of Fitzgerald's slight MCL sprain is admirable, especially with fellow wideout John Brown suffering through lingering concussion symptoms. Instead, rest and rehabilitation will dominate Fitzgerald's schedule for the time being.

    08/20/16LBAlex OkaforArmQUESTIONABLEOkafor has opted to avoid surgery and play with a torn biceps, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Okafor sustained the injury in Tuesday's practice, the second such torn biceps in his three-year career. In 2013, surgery was ordered up for the then rookie, but examinations may have revealed that the tear was less severe than three seasons ago. The pass rusher has totaled 10 sacks the past two campaigns, while logging 66 and 58.5 percent of the defensive snaps, but the addition of Chandler Jones along with the injury could very well result in a scaled-back role.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/01/16WRJohn BrownHeadPROBABLEBrown won't practice Wednesday due to a headache, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Concussions are not to be trifled with, and Brown's case is exhibit A. On Sunday, he was cleared for practice, but his early departure didn't raise any particular concern. Donning a yellow no-contact jersey both Sunday and Monday wasn't out of the ordinary, either, as players can participate in certain drills depending upon their current stage in the NFL's protocol for head injuries. With clear symptoms lingering, questions can now be raised regarding his availability as Week 1 approaches. If DNPs come to pass, both Jaron Brown and JJ Nelson would receive bumps in relevance.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    07/30/16DLRed BryantAchillesQUESTIONABLEBryant (Achilles) returned to practice Monday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Discomfort in Bryant's Achilles forced back-to-back absences over the weekend, but his presence Monday allowed him to resume his quest for a reserve spot along the Cardinals' defensive front.

    (Updated 08/02/2016)
    07/30/16DBMike JenkinsHandQUESTIONABLEJenkins (hand) returned to practice on Sunday, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.

    Jenkins had surgery for a broken hand at the start of August. He was expected to miss anywhere from 2-to-3 weeks, so his return Sunday appears to be on the early side of that original projection. Jenkins will have to battle for a role as a depth option at cornerback for the upcoming season.
