Panthers expect to get guard back for Sunday’s game

Carolina Panthers guard Chris Scott participated fully in practice for the first time since spraining his MCL against Atlanta in Week 9.

Scott had been limited in the past week, and Rivera liked what he saw out of the 6-foot-4, 315-pound lineman on Thursday.

“As we’ve said with all these knee injuries we’ll re-evaluate in the morning and see how he responds,” Rivera said. “Each day he seems to be getting better and better.”

Scott will be in the offensive line rotation, Rivera said, but Nate Chandler will get the start at right guard. Chandler missed Wednesday’s practice with an elbow injury – he said it “flared up” on him – but was at Thursday’s practice with a sleeve on his right arm and a brace on his left leg.

Tight end Greg Olsen (foot) returned to practice in a limited capacity, and Rivera said he had no concerns about Olsen’s availability for Sunday. Special teamer Jordan Senn (hamstring/illness) was not at practice.
