Mychal Kendricks is active tonight for the first time since leaving the Washington game with a hamstring injury. Thad Lewis, Nelson Agholor, Denzel Rice, Kiko Alonso, DeMeco Ryans, Tanner Hawkinson and Brandon Bair are all inactive.

That means Riley Cooper will be available after he was listed as questionable with a knee injury. Josh Huff, who’s also battling a knee injury, will start in place of Agholor.

It’s unclear if Kendricks is healthy enough to start and play an unlimited number of snaps, but Najee Goode will likely play with Ryans out. Bill Davis spoke of Ryans’ status on Wednesday.

“He’s another day-to-day guy, but knowing DeMeco, the way he handles injuries, you expect him back because he is a warrior in that category,” Davis said.

As for the Panthers, A.J. Klein will start in place of linebacker Shaq Thompson.
