Week 9 Wednesday Injury Report: Sam Darnold limited


CHARLOTTE — Quarterback Sam Darnold was a limited participant Wednesday, as the Panthers starter remains in the concussion protocol.

Darnold's listed on the report with a concussion and a right shoulder injury, after the hard shot he took from Falcons linebacker Foye Oluokun, which knocked him out of the game.

He has to be cleared by an independent neurologist before he's able to play.

Wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. was a full participant in practice. He remains in the concussion protocol as well, but his activity was a positive sign. He's missed the last two games.

Cornerback/special-teamer Stantley Thomas-Oliver III was listed as a limited participant with a toe injury.

Otherwise, everyone on the report was listed as a full participant Wednesday.

That group includes cornerback CJ Henderson (shoulder), linebacker Shaq Thompson (foot), left tackle Cameron Erving (knee), center Matt Paradis (knee), cornerback Stephon Gilmore (quad), and linebacker Jermaine Carter Jr. (ankle).

Running back Christian McCaffrey was back on the field with teammates as well. He was designated to return from IR earlier in the day. That means he can practice, and it marks the start of a 21-day window to activate him.

He's been out since a Week 3 hamstring injury, but was moving well in the period of practice open to reporters.

Punter Joseph Charlton, safeties Juston Burris and Myles Hartsfield and guard Pat Elflein are also among that group that has been designated to return.
