The final practice of the week is over and the team is officially headed to Carolina. The injury news got slightly better today, depending on how you look at it. The best news is that Travis LaBoy and Ben Patrick practiced on a limited basis and will be listed as questionable. Boldin did practice on a limited basis and even though his status won't be determined until Saturday afternoon, he's expected to play. Aaron Francisco went through a full practice but he's still officially listed as questionable. The bad news is though that Leonard Pope has been ruled out for Sunday's game since he still couldn't practice with his bum ankle.
As for the Panthers' injuries, they've got three very big names that could miss Sunday's contest. Ryan Kalil (starting center) missed practice again and he's listed as doubtful. I'd be very surprised if he played considering that he's missed the past two games and hasn't practiced at all this week. Muhsin Muhammad also sat out of practice (team decision) and is officially listed as doubtful. Jeff Otah (starting RT) returned to practice and is officially listed as questionable. He's missed the past three games.
