The Super Bowl injury report has updates for Thomas Davis, Jared Allen, TJ Ward, Darian Stewart, Jonathan Stewart, Chris Harris and Mike Tolbert heading into the big game.
The Panthers are expecting Thomas Davis and Jared Allen to play in the Super Bowl and those two are the most significant injury concerns for Carolina. Davis is coming back after breaking his arm against the Seattle Seahawks, but the linebacker said that he is ready to go this week. Davis said that he has not been limited in what he can do and he was a full participant in practice this week.
Allen was listed as limited in practice, but head coach Ron Rivera said that was about giving Allen some rest and that he is not in danger of missing the game. Allen sat out against the Seahawks with a broken bone in his foot, but he is on track to play against the Broncos. Davis had surgery on his arm after the Seahawks game and got 12 screws inserted, but the linebacker has been adamant that nothing will keep him from playing in the game. Allen was the only player limited for the Panthers in practice
"I haven't tried anything that I can't do yet, but if I get to something, I'll definitely let you know," Davis said to the media, according to Pro Football Talk. "But right now, I'm able to do everything."
The Broncos have TJ Ward and Darian Stewart as their most significant injuries and head coach Gary Kubiak said that both players should play in the Super Bowl. Stewart is dealing with a knee injury, while Ward is dealing with an ankle injury. Both players were limited participants in practice and Stewart said to the media that he is not dealing with any pain. Chris Harris is still dealing with a shoulder issue, but he is in no danger of missing the game.
