CHARLOTTE - Tight end Greg Olsen missed practice again on Tuesday with a sore back, but said that he should be able to play on Thursday.
"My back just got jacked up a little bit. But I’ll be alright," Olsen said Tuesday. "Big picture, it’s not a big deal. Short week obviously isn’t ideal, but we’ll make it work."
Bruce Irvin continued to be held out of practice with a hamstring injury, while Rashaan Gaulden did not practice with a groin injury. Rivera said there is concern for both ahead of Thursday night's game.
Christian McCaffrey was added to the injury report as a limited participant, but Rivera specified it was simply for rest.
Greg Little was a full participant for the first time since exiting the New England game with concussion symptoms.
