Panthers Safety Could Return This Week

He's been out seven straight weeks.

Carolina Panthers interim defensive coordinator Al Holcomb said Thursday that he's hopeful that safety Jeremy Chinn will be available for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Holcomb acknowledged Chinn's ''dynamic'' ability to contribute at multiple positions, and there's no doubt that the return of the safety would be a big boost for the Panthers' defense.

In four games this season, Chinn has 20 total tackles, one sack and two passes defended. The former second-round pick was designated to return from the injured reserve last week.
