Munnerlyn (abdomen) returned to practice Friday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

As expected, Munnerlyn was able to shake off his abdominal strain before the start of training camp and should be able to practice consistently this summer for the Panthers. He'll be the team's No. 1 cornerback this season after accruing 59 tackles and two interceptions in 2012.
