  • Panthers' Rashaan Melvin: Signed to active roster

    The Panthers signed Melvin to their active roster Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Melvin was elevated -- for the second time -- to the active roster ahead of Thursday's contest against the Texans, and he did enough to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. The 31-year-old will operate as a depth option while Jaycee Horn (foot) remains sidelined. The Panthers also executed a trade to acquire CJ Henderson, so Melvin's role may decrease slightly when the newcomer gets fully acclimated to Carolina's defensive schemes.

    Melvin was elevated from the practice squad for Thursday's Week 3 matchup against Houston, and he recorded four tackles (three solo) while playing 29 defensive snaps. Although the 31-year-old will head back to the practice squad for now, he'll be an option to serve as depth in the secondary since Jaycee Horn (foot) is expected to miss several months.

    Melvin didn't return after injuring his groin during Friday's preseason contest against the Steelers, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.
