Kuechly finished with eight tackles (six solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Buccaneers.

Kuechly (concussion) is active for Sunday's contest in Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

An independent neurologist cleared Kuechly of concussion symptoms by week's end, ensuring just one absence as a result of his most-recent head injury. He's a must-start IDP, when healthy, but his history with concussions leaves him one hit away from yet another visit to the protocol.

Kuechly practiced in full Wednesday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. Per head coach Ron Rivera, Kuechly remains in the concussion protocol but is expected to return Sunday in Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

With a full practice under his belt, Kuechly is clearly in the last phase or two of the protocol for head injuries. At this point, only a positive visit to an independent neurologist may stand in his way to a return this weekend. Fortunately for Kuechly, he has four more days to achieve that end.

Kuechly (concussion) is taking part in the Panthers' practice Wednesday, but remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kuechly seems to be making progress from the concussion he sustained in the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Eagles, but it appears he's yet to receive clearance from an independent neurologist to return to game action. It's likely that he'll continue to work out with the team throughout the week, though Kuechly will need to pass the final phase of the concussion protocol in order to get the green light for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
