Thursday practice, after right thumb injury, along with TE
Anthony Fasano and DE Chris Canty. Wide receiver Terry Glenn is
still questionable for the Saturday game, after a limited
Thursday practice. At the Panthers camp, quarterback Vinny
Testaverde, defensive end Julius Peppers, safety Chris Harris
and wide receiver Keary Colbert all missed Thursday practice.
