05/18/16WRKelvin BenjaminKneePROBABLEPanthers head coach Ron Rivera said he expects Benjamin (knee) to be ready for the start of training camp in late July, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Now 10 months removed from tearing an ACL, Benjamin has stated on multiple occasions that he expects to be ready for the beginning of camp. He was a limited participant throughout OTAs and minicamp, only taking part in individual drills. Benjamin should be ready to practice with his teammates by late July -- at which point he'll likely step right back in as the No. 1 wide receiver, leading a group that includes Ted Ginn, Devin Funchess and Philly Brown.

04/27/16DBBene' BenwikereLegPROBABLEBenwikere (lower leg) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Benwikere suffered a lower leg fracture in December, forcing him to miss the final three games of the regular season. He was most recently seen doing some sled pushing on Thursday during a rehab session, which indicates Benwikere has taken the next step in his recovery. While the PUP list is an option to the start the year if he sees any setbacks, Benwikere doesn't expect to take that route and he should be good to go by the start of training camp at the end up July. He'll look to solidify a starter's role after receiving four straight starts prior to the injury.

04/27/16LBLuke KuechlyShoulderPROBABLEPanthers head coach Ron Rivera said he expects Kuechly (shoulder) to be ready for the start of training camp in late July, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Kuechly suffered a partial labrum tear in Week 17 last season, yet still managed to record 29 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery, four passes defensed and two interceptions (both returned for TDs) in three playoff games. He had offseason surgery and was thus limited to team drills during OTAs and minicamp, but his availability for training camp has never been in much question. Still only 25, Kuechly will look to get back north of 150 tackles after a concussion cost him three games last year.

04/25/16LBThomas DavisArm Davis' 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.
