  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: Healthy scratch Sunday

    Higgins (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Falcons, David Newton of reports.

  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: Healthy scratch in Week 5

    Higgins (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 5 clash against the 49ers, Steve Reed of The Associated Press reports.

    The veteran wideout was active last week yet never logged a snap despite the absence of Laviska Shenault (hamstring). Despite the latter remaining out Sunday, Higgins is assured of not seeing any action for the second straight game. Higgins' inactive status Sunday should bump Terrace Marshall up to the No. 4 wideout role against San Francisco.

  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: No snaps Sunday

    Higgins was active but did not play a single snap in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Browns.

    Higgins was anticipated to serve as Carolina's third or fourth wideout against his former team, but with both him and Terrace Marshall curiously being stuck on the sidelines all game, Shi Smith took on that complementary role. Ahead of Week 2's matchup versus the Giants, it'll be interesting to hear an explanation for Higgins' lack of involvement, but it certainly didn't offer an encouraging start to his time with the Panthers.

  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: No catches in preseason finale

    Higgins didn't catch his only target in Friday's 21-0 preseason win over the Bills.

    Higgins saw Shi Smith start ahead of him alongside DJ Moore and Terrace Marshall. While Smith finished with three catches for 32 yards and a touchdown in 22 snaps, Higgins couldn't get onto the stat sheet in 25 snaps. As the preseason now concludes, it'll be interesting to see how Higgins and Smith are incorporated behind Moore, Robbie Anderson and Marshall in Carolina's first-team offense.

  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: Makes two grabs

    Higgins caught two of three targets for 11 yards in Friday's 20-10 preseason loss to the Patriots.

    Higgins started with fellow wideouts DJ Moore (shoulder), Robbie Anderson (quadriceps) and Terrace Marshall (hamstring) sitting out. Although Carolina's passing game wasn't able to do much, Higgins' involvement enabled him further opportunities to get live reps within a new scheme. After coming over from the Browns this offseason, Higgins has impressed with his veteran reliability, Augusta Stone of the team's official site reports. Given his familiarity from playing with quarterback Baker Mayfield in Cleveland and the aforementioned injuries currently nagging Carolina's receiving corps, Higgins' stock as a depth option is trending up at the moment.

  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: Scores to start preseason

    Higgins caught all three of his targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-21 preseason win over the Commanders.

    Higgins scored Carolina's first touchdown by hauling in an eight-yard pass from Sam Darnold, who entered the game behind Baker Mayfield at quarterback. With top wideout DJ Moore sitting out with a sore shoulder, Higgins played the entire first half. In finding the end zone, he did well in his quest to carve out a significant role behind starters Moore and Robbie Anderson, with second-year wideout Terrace Marshall (lower leg) missing a chance to distinguish himself Saturday while sidelined.

  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: Reunited with Mayfield in Carolina

    Higgins' familiarity with new Panthers quarterback Baker Mayfield could benefit his chances of carving out a meaningful role, Joseph Person of The Atlantic reports.

    Higgins has played alongside Mayfield for each of the quarterback's four NFL seasons. He posted a career-high 599 yards and four touchdowns for the Browns in 2020 and will hope to reignite such chemistry with Mayfield now that the signal-caller has been traded to the Panthers. Although Sam Darnold will also be competing for Carolina's starting quarterback job, Higgins' experience with Mayfield should offer him comfort as he strives to push Terrace Marshall for the team's third-wideout role.
