As mentioned earlier in the day, the big news for the Detroit Lions is that starting offensive linemen Rick Wagner and T.J. Lang returned to practice on Thursday. However both participated in a limited fashion, according to the official injury report.

Likewise, Jarrad Davis continues to be limited by his neck injury, but it appears he is through concussion protocol, increasing his chances to play this Sunday against the Panthers.

As for Carolina, they also had a couple key players back at practice on Thursday. Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and backup center Tyler Larsen were both participating in practice, while Julius Peppers sat for the second straight day. On Wednesday, Peppers had a rest day per the injury report. However, on Thursday’s report he was listed with a shoulder injury. According to Cat Scratch Reader, Peppers was dealing with a shoulder injury prior to last week’s game against the Patriots, but he ended up play.

Additionally, starting left tackle Matt Kalil didn’t practice with a groin injury.
