  Panthers | Thursday practice report    Thu Jan 8, 02:42 PM

Carolina Panthers DT Star Lotulelei (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 8. FS Thomas DeCoud (hamstring) was limited during practice, while LB A.J. Klein (ankle) and CB Melvin White (ankle) fully participated in practice.

Footballguys view: Losing Lotulelei could be an issue going against a Seattle team which will run the ball and challenge the middle of the field. That injury makes Marshawn Lynch even more of a slam dunk in daily games.
