Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters that he wasn't concerned with Funchess' absence from practice.

"Funchess should be fine. Just sore from a very physical game," Rivera said Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Funchess has 14 catches for 123 yards and three touchdowns in the past two weeks and leads all Panthers' wideouts with 24 receptions on the season. Rookie running back Christian McCaffrey leads the club with 27 catches.

Funchess has 269 receiving yards for Carolina (4-1), which hosts the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) on Thursday.
