Ginn (knee) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice. Following a limited showing Monday, Ginn has seemingly erased any concern regarding his status for Thursday's game against the Cowboys. Rookie second-rounder Devin Funchess has come on strong in recent weeks, but the speedy veteran hasn't been any worse for it, with his role unchanged throughout the season.
Ginn (knee) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's injury report, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. During a five-catch, 37-yard performance Sunday, Ginn got in on the touchdown party against Washington, scoring from two yards out. Otherwise, he had only surpassed 50 yards receiving twice in the six games since he last reached the end zone. While a limited practice to start Week 12 prep is encouraging, Wednesday's report could clear up whether he'll take the field Thursday at Dallas.
Ginn turned eight targets into just four catches for 45 yards Sunday in Tennessee. Ginn gets consistent attention from quarterback Cam Newton, but he often fails to produce results despite his role as the top member of a depleted receiving corps. The veteran has topped 60 receiving yards in a game just once all season.
Ginn caught one pass (on four targets) for 20 yards in Sunday's win over the Packers. Ginn has now mustered two or fewer catches in five of Carolina's seven games this season, evidencing his hit-or-miss fantasy stock. While his occasional receptions tend to go for long yardage, like Sunday's catch for 20 yards, Ginn is difficult to rely on, particularly in the Panthers' run heavy offense. Additionally, after scoring three touchdowns in his first four games, Ginn has not found the end zone since.
Ginn caught two passes (on 10 targets) for 60 yards in Monday night's win over the Colts. Ginn was noticeably challenged by the extremely wet playing conditions in Carolina on Monday night, as he failed to catch eight of the ten passes thrown his way, including a couple of bad drops on deep routes. While the speedy veteran still broke free for a game-long 48-yard reception Monday, Ginn's final totals could have been greatly improved with surer hands. That being said, Ginn's 60 yards still marked his second-best performance of the season, providing some consolation to an otherwise troublesome display.
