Ginn (knee) didn't have a single target in the passing game in Thursday's 33-14 win over the Cowboys. Despite his probable listing for Thursday's game and the absence of fellow starter Philly Brown (shoulder), Ginn was a virtual non-entity in the passing attack. Carolina raced to an early lead and controlled the game from start to finish, which eliminated the need to look for the wideout on the vertical routes in which he specializes. It was the first time all season that Ginn was targeted fewer than even three times, so don't expect the goose eggs in the reception category to become common for him.
Ginn (knee) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Cowboys. Ginn, who is averaging 44.5 receiving yards per game to date, is out there if you need him Thursday, on the heels of his five-catch, 37-yard effort (on eight targets) this past Sunday against Washington that resulted in his fourth TD of the season. While his Week 12 fantasy upside appears modest, it's worth noting that Ginn has hauled in nine passes (on 15 targets) for 82 yards over his last two outings.
Ginn (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game at Dallas, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Ginn emerged from Week 11 with a knee injury, which was revealed to be slight due to his ability to practice in full both Tuesday and Wednesday. He currently ranks second among Panthers receivers with 66 targets, which could translate to success against a Dallas secondary that has 15.5 YPC and two touchdowns to wideouts over the last three contests.
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.
