Other injuries we're monitoring league-wide:
»Kenjon Barner has a chance to impact Carolina's ground game this season, but not from the trainer's room. The Panthers rookie running back missed another practice Wednesday, according to Steve Reed of The Associated Press. Barner hasn't practiced since suffering an ankle injury in the preseason finale and looms as a possible scratch for Sunday's opener against the Seattle Seahawks. That leaves Mike Tolbert as the primary backup behind DeAngelo Williams.
» We've heard all summer that H-back James Casey is set for a prominent role in Chip Kelly's fast-paced Eagles attack. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Casey was back at practice Wednesday after exiting the preseason finale with a hamstring injury. Philly's "OW" should be ready for Monday night's tilt with the Washington Redskins.
»Browns rookie pass rusher Barkevious Mingo was limited again during Wednesday's practice. The outside linebacker, making his way back from a bruised lung, took part in non-contact drills, did cone work and caught passes, per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Browns CEO Joe Banner told the newspaper Tuesday that Mingo will undergo medical testing this week to determine his availability for Sunday's opener against the Miami Dolphins.
»Vikings coach Leslie Frazier told reporters Wednesday the team has yet to decide if defensive tackle Kevin Williams will play against the Detroit Lionson Sunday, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today. There's "definitely a chance," Frazier said, but Williams hasn't practiced since suffering a hyperextended right knee against the 49erson Aug. 25.
"It's still a day-to-day thing," Gabbert told reporters, per The Florida Times-Union. "I'm going to go out there and do a little more than I did on Monday and see how it feels. It feels better and better each day. It's just a funny deal to stay on top of it and manage it."
