CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly returned to the practice field Wednesday, according to the team’s official website.

This was Kuechly’s first practice since suffering a concussion in the Week 11 win over New Orleans.

Kuechly took part in position drills open to the media.

Kuechly, who leads the Panthers with 112 tackles, accompanied the team on its recent West Coast trip to Oakland and Seattle but was merely a spectator.

Safety Kurt Coleman also practiced Wednesday. Coleman missed the game at Seattle after suffering a concussion against the Raiders.
