Update (2:30 p.m. ET) - NFL rules require the Panthers to post an official injury report , so they have done that today even though 1) it’s the exact same one they used yesterday, and 2) their practice today was only a walkthrough.Here’s today’s official injury report:Panthers injury reportDid not participate in practiceC Ryan Kalil (ankle)LB David Mayo (knee)WR Torrey Smith (knee)Limited participation in practiceDE Mario Addison (shoulder)CB Captain Munnerlyn (chest)QB Cam Newton (shoulder)TE Greg Olsen (foot)S Eric Reid (shoulder)Full participation in practiceN/AThe Panthers aren’t very concerned with the guys who were limited today since the weather was bad and practice was just a walkthrough. The only cause for concern would be if none of these guys participate tomorrow. With it being a short week, the Panthers are being cautious and giving anyone nursing an injury as much rest as possible. Torrey Smith and Ryan Kalil are in danger of missing Thursday night’s game, but we won’t know more on that until tomorrow or Thursday.Ron Rivera, however, is optimistic that Kalil will suit up.Due to the weather and the fact that they play in two days, the Panthers had a glorified walkthrough at practice today. Wide receiver Torrey Smith (knee) and center Ryan Kalil (ankle) did not participate in today’s practice session, so their status for Thursday night in Pittsburgh is definitely up in the air right now.Linebacker Shaq Thompson and safety Eric Reid worked out on the sidelines , so hopefully that’s just the Panthers being cautious due to the short break between games.The Panthers travel to Pittsburgh on Thursday night for a tough road contest against a quality opponent. History isn’t on the Panthers’ side as they have never won in Pittsburgh and are 0-for-5 in their last five games against the Steelers, and 1-5 all-time against them.Hopefully they can turn their fortunes around on Thursday night!Stay tuned for more updates on the injury report. We’ll share any new information whenever it becomes available.Practice StatusDid not participate in practice = 0% of a player’s normal repetitionsLimited participation in practice = Less than 100% of a player’s normal repetitionsFull participation in practice = 100% of a player’s normal repetitionsGame StatusOut = Player will not playDoubtful = Player unlikely to playQuestionable = Uncertain if player will play CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — When new Panthers owner David Tepper signed former Pro Bowl safety and social activist Eric Reid it was another clear sign to players that times are changing in Carolina under his leadership.Tepper is showing the players in his locker room that he’s eager to listen — and get involved — when it comes to social and racial injustice.Tepper supported the players’ protests and this week he accompanied Carolina players Torrey Smith and J.J. Jansen on a “listen and learn” tour in Charlotte with law enforcement, public defenders and social justice advocates. The group discussed solutions to what the Players Coalition said are “systemic issues that lead to racially and ethnically disparate over-incarceration” in North Carolina.The agenda topics included bail reform, racial disparity regarding policing, segregation and the lack of educational resources for youth in low-income communities of color.“He’s a person that really cares about the community,” said Smith, a Panthers wide receiver and member of the Players Coalition. “It’s not just about the flawed criminal justice system Greg Olsen Jersey , it is about need in general. And he’s all over it. He’s very well educated in that field, and he cares a lot. I believe he is the perfect owner for this city and the challenges it has.”Smith’s comments seem to represent a 180-degree change in how the players view ownership — and it’s only been three months since the 61-year-old hedge fund founder purchased the team.The Panthers previous owner and team founder Jerry Richardson erred on a more conservative side.“They just signed Eric Reid,” said former Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams. “There’s no way … the (previous) owner was going to touch Eric Reid.”Players also no longer seem to have a fear of retaliation if they express themselves.In September of 2017, while Colin Kaepernick, Reid and others around the league were protesting racial and social injustices, players on the Carolina sideline all stood. The closest thing there was to a protest was by Julius Peppers, who remained in the tunnel for one game while the national anthem played.Some players say they were concerned about being punished — or cut — by Richardson if they protested.Panthers safety Eric Ball had once raised his hand and one finger after a black man was shot in Charlotte by police officers in 2016. He was cut from the roster a few days later.The frustration among the players prompted a meeting between Richardson and the team’s captains about their stances on protesting racial and social injustice. While quarterback Cam Newton later said at the time the meeting “productive,” no players protested on the sideline the following week.That could change Sunday when the Panthers host the New York Giants.Reid hasn’t decided if he’ll kneel or not Fozzy Whittaker Color Rush Jersey , saying that he’s “still evaluating the scope of our country” and that he would make that decision later.Based on his previous actions, Tepper — who was not made available for comment through requests made to the Panthers — likely would have no problem if Reid takes a knee.Tepper recently defended NFL players in an interview with CNBC in September, saying the protests are about “justice for all.” He also it makes him aggravated when people call players unpatriotic for protesting, saying “it’s just wrong, it’s dead wrong.”Newton said Wednesday that Tepper has been “everything that we could have asked for and more” as an owner.Jansen, the team’s long snapper, likes what he’s seen too.“It’s very empowering for the players that the issues that we are interested in, he’s interested in them Rashaan Gaulden Jersey , too,” said Jansen, the team’s long snapper. “That’s not to say that he will agree with every player on every issue, but the fact that he finds them to be important issues to learn about is important.”Smith believes this is just the beginning.“This city will be better because of Tepper being the owner,” Smith said.
