    05/04/16TEClive WalfordKneeQUESTIONABLEWalford injured his knee in an ATV accident earlier this offseason, FOX Sports reports.

    Walford will miss spring practices, but he's ahead of schedule in his recovery and is expected to be available at some point during training camp. A 2015 third-round selection, he split snaps and targets with Mychal Rivera as a rookie, posting a 28-329-3 receiving line on 51 targets. As the better blocker of the two players, Walford could be in line for a major role increase this season.

    04/27/16LBNeiron BallKneePROBABLEBall (knee) is "doing everything" and expected to be "ready to roll" for the offseason program by Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie.

    Ball emerged in Week 5 of last season by holding Denver TE Owen Daniels without a catch on five targets. The performance earned him his first career start versus San Diego in Week 6, but shortly into the game he suffered a knee sprain and was ruled out by halftime. Ball will serve as depth for an imposing Raiders' outside linebacking corps in 2016 behind Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith and perhaps Aldon Smith (suspension), should he return in November.

    04/27/16RBRoy HeluHipPROBABLEHelu recently underwent surgery for a hip impingement and is expected to have the same procedure on his other hip soon, ESPN's Adam Caplin reports.

    Helu struggled in his first season as a Raider, playing merely nine games and totaling just 39 rushing yards, 75 receiving yards and one touchdown on 26 offensive touches. In wake of those troubles, Helu's offseason hip procedures figure to help him regain some flexibility going forward, as he hopes to improve next season.

    04/27/16RBMarcel ReeceSuspensionSUSPENDReece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.

    04/27/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDThe Raiders and Smith (suspension) agreed to a two-year contract Monday, the team's official site reports.

    In the midst of a one-year suspension for another violation of the NFL's policy for substances of abuse, Smith will remain where he spent the first nine games of the 2015 season, when he contributed 3.5 sacks among 28 tackles to the Raiders' pass rush. It remains to be seen whether he'll be strictly contained to a one-year ban, as the commissioner's office has been known to do their due diligence once a suspended player applies for reinstatement. Depending on further adjustments made to the defense in the offseason, free-agent addition Bruce Irvin appears set to man strongside linebacker in the meantime.

    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.

    (Updated 04/25/2016)
    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."
