Panthers: Davis returns to practice
Running back Stephen Davis, who has missed all but two games with a knee injury, returned to practice on Wednesday, according to the Panthers' official wesbite. He is listed as questionable on the injury report for this week's game against the Raiders.
The fact that Davis is already practicing this week is a fantastic sign. If he continues to work out without incident this week, we see no reason why he wouldn't play on Sunday against the Raiders. And if you've kept him on your roster all this time, you have to use him against a defense that ranks 28th against the run (131 yards per game) and dead last in point allowed (28 per game).
