The Carolina Panthers will have Pro Bowl players Ryan Kalil and Greg Olsen back for Sunday's key NFC game against the Minnesota Vikings at Bank of America Stadium.

Kalil, a five-time Pro Bowl selection at center, said Thursday he will play even though coach Ron Rivera cautiously said, "We'll see.''

"I'll be suiting up and snapping the ball on Sunday,'' said Kalil, sidelined 10 of the past 11 games with a neck injury that flared up after the opener.

Kalil attempted to make a comeback in an Oct. 22 game at Chicago, but aggravated the injury in the first half and didn't play in the second half. He has been inactive for four of the past five games, not playing in the one game he suited up.
