basis -- was an upgrade in and of itself for wide receiver D.j. Hackett, who continues to recover from a knee injury suffered on
the opening kickoff of the Panthers' Week 5 win over Kansas City.
But his limited work Wednesday was enough for head coach John Fox
to declare that Hackett was now "day-to-day" after his first
practice work since Oct. 5. "He looked better," Fox said. "I think
he's definitely now day-to-day; he's not week-to-week any more,
which is a good sign." In spite of missing the last three games,
Hackett still ranks fourth on the Panthers in receptions and
receiving yardage, with 10 catches for 131 yards. "He's a guy that
had production for us early in the season, had the injury and
we're happy to have him back out there." Fox said.
