News: Blackburn (back) returned to practice Sunday, the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Blackburn has been sidelined for the Panthers' past two preseason contests, after tweaking his back over a week ago. That time off has seen A.J. Klein receive plenty of snaps in Carolina's competition to start at weakside linebacker. Although Klein intercepted a pass in last Sunday's exhibition game, the second-year player was beat in pass coverage for a touchdown Friday versus New England. As such, the more experienced Blackburn being able to suit up for Thursday's final preseason outing could help sort out the Panthers' depth chart.(RotoWire, )

News: Blackburn (back) will not play in Friday's preseason game versus the Patriots, the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Blackburn missed Carolina's latest exhibition contest after tweaking his back in practice last week and apparently the issue is more serious than initially anticipated. While surgery has not been discussed, Blackburn's back injury sounds like it carries the possibility of lingering into the beginning of the regular season. While that remains to be seen, A.J. Klein figures to start at weakside linebacker and will probably win the job for Week 1 considering Blackburn's inactivity.(RotoWire, )

News: Blackburn (back) didn't play in Sunday's preseason game versus Kansas City. Impact: Blackburn tweaked his back during practice last week, but fortunately an MRI was returned negative. Nonetheless, he sat out Sunday's second exhibition outing, allowing A.J. Klein to start at strongside linebacker. Furthermore, Klein intercepted a pass Sunday, which, coupled with Blackburn's injury, could thrust the second-year player in the lead to win a starting job at linebacker this season.(RotoWire, )
