CHARLOTTE — The first injury report of the year is a short one, which is what you hope for this time of year.
Tight end/fullback Giovanni Ricci (hip) was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice, the only player who wasn't a full participant.
Ricci picked up the injury in the preseason and has been working his way back in recent days. He wasn't wearing a red or green jersey in practice Wednesday. He's a key part of their special teams, so having him available Sunday against the Browns would be important.
Kicker Eddy Piñeiro (left hip) was listed as a full participant in practice.
He got here last week, after the season-ending groin injury suffered by Zane Gonzalez.
