Thomas (ribs) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Thomas suffered the injury in Carolina's preseason opener last week and now appears likely to sit out Friday's exhibition against the Bills. With 34-year-old starting tight end Greg Olsen an obvious candidate to be rested, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site speculates that third-string option Chris Manhertz could be busy in Carolina's second preseason game.
