Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion, questionable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. Benjamin returned to Week 6’s game against the Bengals after taking a big hit from Vontaze Burfict. He apparently showed up with a headache early in the week and is now going through the league’s concussion protocol. HC Ron Rivera says he was pleased with how Benjamin worked on Friday and that the wideout “practiced well” and “looked sharp.” He still has to be cleared by an independent doctor, but that appears to be the final step towards playing in Week 7. The Panthers play early on Sunday, but we should know his status by Saturday. His absence would be a downgrade for Cam Newton and an upgrade for Greg Olsen and Jerricho Cotchery.
