Turner (concussion) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game versus the Saints, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Turner, a New Orelans native, will have the the opportunity to play in his hometown for the Panthers' wild-card matchup. He missed the final three games of the regular season after suffering a concussion. Greg Van Roten would presumably fill in at right guard should he suffer any setbacks.
Turner (concussion) was a full participant in practice all week but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints.
While Turner has continued to be a full particiant in practice this week, the questionable tag suggests that the guard remains in concussion protocol. Turner will continue to be day-to-day as he looks to be free of concussion-like symptoms by Sunday.
Turner (concussion) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Tiffany Blackmon of NFL Network reports. The 24-year-old guard still remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Turner missed the Panthers' final three regular-season contests with the head injury, but the full practice showing suggests he's trending toward clearing the protocol before Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Saints arrives. He'll only need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist within the next few days in order to guarantee his availability.
Turner (concussion) was downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Turner was a limited participant in practice this week and was originally tabbed questionable, but he was downgraded Saturday since he has yet to clear the concussion protocol. Amini Silatolu should start at right guard in his absence, as Turner will aim to clear the protocol in time for next weekend's Wild Card matchup.
Three consecutive practices bodes well for Turner's return Sunday, but the absence of an unrestricted session leaves him with the questionable tag. If Turner sits out Sunday, Amini Silatolu will be his likely replacement at right guard.
