Kalil (groin) practiced without limitations Wednesday and will play Thursday against the Eagles, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.
Kalil was limited for practices earlier in the week, but it was likely just a cautionary measure.
Kalil (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Kalil will slot back into his starting role at right tackle, and he'll be tasked with slowing down Lions defensive ends Anthony Zettel and Ezekiel Ansah.
Kalil (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Kalil is still expected to suit up in Week 6, but if he suffers a setback, expect to see Amini Silatolu take over at offensive tackle.
Kalil (groin) did not participate in practice on Thursday, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. "He had a slight twinge in his groin, so we slowed him down," head coach Ron Rivera said.
The injury is a bit concerning, especially considering the Panthers have four other offensive lineman on the injury report as well. Kalil's status in Friday's practice should give more of a sense to the severity of the injury. Should the veteran be ruled out, expect Amini Silatolu to take over starting responsibilities.
Kalil (groin) returned to practice Sunday, Steve Reed of The Associated Press reports.
Kalil had been sidelined with a groin injury the past few days, but it doesn't seem to have been very serious. Look for him to instantly slot back in at left tackle.
