Gaulden (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Gaulden was inactive for Sunday's win over the Ravens due to an ankle injury, but appears to have fully progressed through his recovery. The rookie third-round pick has not played more than 15 defensive snaps since Week 3, and will serve as a reserve member of Carolina's secondary against the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Gaulden's injury prevented him from practicing Thursday and Friday, resulting in him carrying a doubtful designation into the weekend. The reserve safety hasn't been a major part of Carolina's defensive backfield rotation during his rookie season, logging no more than 27 defensive snaps in any given week.
Gaulden (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Gaulden is nursing an ankle injury of undisclosed severity, and he appears on track to miss Sunday's game against Baltimore. If the rookie is unable to suit up, Colin Jones will serve as Carolina's primary backup at the safety position in Week 8.
