Carolina's injury update from after today's practice:

Williams trades yellow for red

Canes forward Justin Williams traded his yellow jersey for a red one today at practice, meaning he has been cleared for contact drills -- another step in his recovery.

Williams had surgery for an Achilles tendon tear in September but is ahead of schedule in his rehab and has been skating with the team in workouts.

Defenseman Frantisek Kaberle continues to get in more work and closer to returning, but Joni Pitkanen and Tim Gleason missed practice today at the RecZone. Pitkanen took a hard shot Monday night in the 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers.

"He got his bell rung," Canes coach Peter Laviolette said of Pitkanen. "He's day-to-day right now. He went to the doctors and they said just get an off-ice workout today and see how he feels tomorrow."

Laviolette said Gleason, who was injured Sunday against Nashville, also was day to day. While he said he doubted Gleason would return for the two games this week against Philadelphia, he said he would not rule it out.
