CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers coach Ron Rivera is confident backup quarterback Kyle Allen can get the job done if Cam Newton can't play Sunday against the Cardinals, a scenario that seems increasingly likely each day.

Allen took reps with the first team again Wednesday after Newton missed his second straight day of practice with a mid-foot sprain. If Allen's number is called, he would start Sunday against his former college teammate Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals

"Kyle is a very bright quarterback who understands the game and grasps it very well," Rivera said. "He's got a good arm and he's a good decision maker and he plays very fast. He has all of the intangibles you want in a quarterback."

Incognito rejoins Raiders with ban over

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Oakland Raiders left guard Richie Incognito practiced for the first time Wednesday after returning from a two-game suspension and said he's anxious to play. He's just as eager to leave his long history of troubles on and off the field in the past.

"The suspension's behind me, all the negative stuff is behind me. Just eyes forward, staying positive," Incognito said. "Relishing the opportunity, enjoying every day in here because you don't know how many more you're going to have. And wanting to play well. Just really want to charge forward and make it right."
