Turner suffered a knee injury Sunday against the Buccaneers and didn't return, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Turner (knee) was a full practice participant Wednesday and is in line to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.
Turner left Sunday's game against the Bears and didn't return, but he'll be available to slot back in at right guard in Week 8.
Turner, a 2014 third-round selection out of LSU, has played over 3,000 snaps with the Panthers' offensive line unit throughout his young career. His performance dipped in 2016 as he was forced to occasionally switch to right tackle due to injuries, but Turner has shown flashes of excellence and will look to return to that level throughout the next four years in Carolina.
