Ted Ginn (knee) was held out of practice on Friday, and is listed as questionable to play against the Seahawks. Panthers coach Ron Rivera, however, said the reason for the receiver sitting out was that he was a little tired. Rivera also said he expects Ginn to play.
Ginn had career-highs in receiving yards (739) and touchdown grabs (10) this season as he emerged as one of Cam Newton's favorite targets. In a Week 6 matchup against Seattle though, Ginn only accumulated 18 yards on one reception.
In other Carolina injury news, defensive end Kony Ealy (illness) returned to practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game.
Here are the other injuries we are tracking Friday:
1. The Broncos plan on having Brock Osweiler as their backup quarterback in the Divisional Round against the Steelers, per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Osweiler (knee) is set to practice Friday. He is listed as questionable, but is expected to be active.
In addition, running back DeAngelo Williams (foot) has been ruled out and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder), who practiced fully Friday, is questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Broncos. Per Rapoport, Roethlisberger is expected to play.
4. Packers cornerback Sam Shields (concussion) was limited in practice on Friday, and is questionable to play. Offensive tackle David Bakhtiari (ankle) was not at practice, but is still listed as probable. Wideout Davante Adams (knee) will not play against the Cardinals.
6. Chiefs LB Tamba Hali (knee/thumb), WR Jeremy Maclin (ankle), RB Spencer Ware (ankle) and LB Justin Houston (knee) are all listed as questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Patriots. Maclin faces an uphill battle to play Saturday, according to NFL Media's Jeff Darlington.
