Peppers (shoulder) wasn't limited in Wednesday's practice and will play Thursday against the Eagles, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Mario Addison (knee) also suiting up Thursday, Peppers will continue to only play in specific pass-rush situations. His 5.5 sacks through five games is a promising sign, but Peppers' inability to post a consistent tackle count hurts his IDP value.

Peppers (shoulder) was limited in practice Tuesday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The ageless wonder remains on the injury report after playing through a shoulder ailment Sunday against the Lions. His limited status bodes well for availability Thursday against the Eagles, especially considering he's only averaging a little over 29 defensive reps per contest.

Peppers (shoulder) tallied two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Peppers has been hot to start the season, as he now has 5.5 sacks in five games. The veteran has been in vintage form, and it appears he and the team have found a comfortable workload. He logged 29 defensive snaps (48.0 percent) Sunday, and figures to continue seeing similar usage going forward.

Peppers (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday at Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Peppers was held out of practice all week due to a shoulder injury. While it may have been an excuse to get the veteran some rest, he'll look to keep up his impressive sack pace, as he's tallied 4.5 in four games to date.

Peppers (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even with his appearance on the injury report, Peppers is expected to play Sunday. He hasn't been slotting in as a starting, having played no more than 34 defensive snaps in a game yet. Still, the veteran defensive end hasn't lost his pass-rushing touch, recording 4.5 sacks through the first four games. His fantasy value relies on sacks, though, making him a high-risk, high-reward IDP option.

Peppers (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Peppers was added to the injury report Friday when he experienced shoulder troubles, and there wasn't much information available to project his availability for Sunday. The veteran defensive end will slot back in as the No. 3 in the depth chart, but his seven tackles (four solo) and 2.5 sacks prove he's still a useful asset on the Panthers' defensive front.

Peppers is dealing with a shoulder injury that has landed him on the Panthers' injury report for Sunday's matchup against the Pats, Max Henson of the Panthers' official website report.

EDGE Analysis

It is unclear when Peppers suffered the injury, but it presumably occurred during the team's week of practice. The severity of the issue is unknown, so his status for Week 4 is seemingly up in the air at this point. If the Panthers ultimately exercise caution and opt to sit the veteran look for Wes Horton to see increased snaps in the defensive end rotation.
