All things considered, the Carolina Panthers should’ve come out of Friday’s practice relatively satisfied on the injury front.

In the team’s final report heading into their Week 8 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, three offensive linemen—two of them starters in left tackle Cameron Erving and center Matt Paradis—did not receive a game designation. That, of course, implies they’re each good to go for what’s been a struggling front all season.

(So while they may not be great, at least they’re not out.)

The biggest name of the bunch, linebacker Shaq Thompson, has been given the questionable label after an encouraging week of practice. What’s more encouraging, though, is what head coach Matt Rhule had to say about him—as he told reporters he expects the seventh-year defender to suit up.

Here’s the final report in its entirety:

As for cornerback Stephon Gilmore, the Panthers will take the same approach as they did last week. They’ll gauge his progress going into tomorrow and make a call from there.
