- In Denver, No. 3 receiver Brandon Stokley practiced on a limited basis Thursday after he did not practice Wednesday. Stokley, unless he has a setback, will likely play Sunday at Carolina. Left cornerback Champ Bailey continued to be limited in practice. Denver coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday that Bailey will try to work at full speed Saturday, which will determine whether he can against the Panthers.
- Fullback/linebacker Spencer Larsen didn't practice Thursday for the second straight day with a groin injury. Weakside linebacker D.J. Williams practiced fully for the second straight day. Williams has missed five games with a knee injury. He will likely play at Carolina if he doesn't suffer a setback.
- In Kansas City, tackle Damion McIntosh didn't practice Thursday because of an illness. Receiver Mark Bradley continued to be limited in practice with a calf injury. He missed the Denver game, but he is making some progress toward facing visiting San Diego on Sunday.
- In San Diego, safety Clinton Hart did not practice. He has a shoulder injury. He was limited in practice Wednesday so he is clearly not making progress. The same goes for fullback Mike Tolbert. He has missed two games with a shoulder problem. He didn't practice Thursday after working some Wednesday. Linebacker Jyles Tucker was limited Thursday because of a nagging hamstring injury.
