Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly back for Thursday’s practice

Pro Bowl linebacker Luke Kuechly returned to practice Thursday after missing a day with a sprained ankle. Kuechly, who twisted his ankle twice against Green Bay, is set to play Sunday at Tennessee.

Left guard Andrew Norwell remains sidelined with a hamstring injury that kept him out of the Packers game. Amini Silatolu, a second-round pick in 2012, started in Norwell's spot against the Packers.

Silatolu believes the time he spent as a backup tackle this season helped him fire off the ball quicker and get into his pass sets quicker at guard.
