  • Thomas caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Chargers. Thomas was unsuccessfully targeted on Carolina's first offensive play, then hauled in his only other look shortly after committing a holding penalty in the second quarter. Through three games, the tight end has managed just three grabs for 25 yards despite his regular starting role, making for a disappointing fantasy return to date.

  • Thomas was not targeted in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers. Thomas played over half of Carolina's offensive snaps, yet didn't see any of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's 42 passing attempts come his way. On a day Bridgewater finished with 367 passing yards, Thomas' complete lack of involvement comes as a concern. The tight end will be desperate to make a larger impact in Week 3 versus the Chargers, but Sunday's goose egg sets the bar incredibly low.

  • Thomas caught both of his targets for 16 total receiving yards in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders. Thomas featured on two-thirds of Carolina's offensive snaps, but he hardly got involved in the team's passing game. With all but five targets going to D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, Curtis Samuel and Christian McCaffrey, Thomas' placement down the Panthers' pecking order was well illustrated. As the starting tight end, however, Thomas at least should see enough playing time to make a bigger impact in upcoming weeks.

  • Thomas (toe) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports. Thomas suffered a toe injury just over a week ago, but he's already resumed operating at full capacity. He's set to serve as Carolina's top tight end during Sunday's season opener against the Raiders, though Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson will all likely rank ahead of Thomas in the pecking order in terms of targets.

  • Coach Matt Rhule believes Thomas (toe) will be available Week 1 versus the Raiders, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. One week removed from injuring his toe last Monday, Thomas may not be back on the field just yet, meaning Wednesday's practice will have some bearing on his ability to suit up in the opener. He doesn't have much competition for targets from position mates Chris Manhertz and Colin Thompson, but Thomas likely won't be higher than fourth in the pecking order within the Panthers offense behind Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson.
