  • Panthers' DJ Chark: One catch in Carolina debut

    Chark (hamstring) caught his only target for 15 yards in Monday's 20-17 loss to the Saints.

    Chark made his Panthers debut after missing the season opener with a hamstring injury. Rookie quarterback Bryce Young had only one completion longer than 15 yards, but Chark produced the passing attack's second-longest play by drawing an 18-yard pass interference penalty in New Orleans territory in the fourth quarter. That play set up Carolina's third field goal of the game, but the Panthers have scored just two touchdowns through two games heading into a Week 3 trip to Seattle.

  • Panthers' DJ Chark: Making team debut Monday

    Chark (hamstring) is active for Monday's game versus the Saints, David Newton of reports.

    Prior to sitting out Week 1 in Atlanta, Chark managed just one limited session due to the hamstring injury that has followed him since at least Aug. 23. During Week 2 prep, he kicked it off with back-to-back capped practices before getting back to all activity Saturday. Still, he was deemed questionable for Monday Night Football. Now that he's officially available for his Panthers debut, Chark should be one of rookie quarterback Bryce Young's top pass catchers along with WRs Adam Thielen and Jonathan Mingo and TE Hayden Hurst.

  • Panthers' DJ Chark: Trending in right direction

    Chark (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Saints

    Perhaps more important than the injury designation was Chark's availability at practice, as the veteran participated fully Saturday after being limited the previous two days. It's worth noting Chark ultimately did not play Week 1 despite practicing on a limited basis, so his status should still be monitored closely heading into Monday's primetime matchup. Should the 26-year-old suit up, expect Chark to split playing time with Adam Thielen and Jonathan Mingo among the starting unit.

  • Panthers' DJ Chark: Listed as limited again

    Chark (hamstring) is listed as a limited participant on Friday's estimated practice report.

    The Panthers only held a walk-through Friday in preparation for Monday's matchup with the Saints. It remains to be seen if Chark can earn an upgrade Saturday, but even if not he should at least manage a 'questionable' designation for the second straight week (after not playing in Carolina's opener).

  • Panthers' DJ Chark: Officially limited Thursday

    Chark (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Chark has been dealing with a hamstring injury since at least Aug. 23 that kept him sidelined for the Panthers' season-opening loss in Atlanta this past Sunday. Prior to that contest, he managed one limited session last Friday, and he now has been active in drills in back-to-back days. Chark told Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer earlier Thursday that he's optimistic about making his debut with Carolina this coming Monday against the Saints, but ultimately a decision on his Week 2 availability could come down to a game-time call. If he's able to suit up, Chark will join a receiving corps composed of WRs Adam Thielen and Jonathan Mingo and TE Hayden Hurst, among others.

  • Panthers' DJ Chark: Practicing to start week

    Chark (hamstring) took part in the Panthers' unofficial practice Wednesday, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Since the Panthers host the Saints on Monday, the team won't release its first Week 2 injury report until Thursday, when the extent of Chark's participation in practice will be revealed. Chark said last week that he thought he was ready to play in the Panthers' eventual season-opening loss to the Falcons, and though he was ultimately inactive for that contest, his participation in practice Wednesday suggests he's tracking toward a return to the lineup Monday. Adam Thielen, Jonathan Mingo and Terrace Marshall all ran routes on at least 90 percent of Bryce Young's dropbacks in the 24-10 loss to Atlanta, combining for 52 yards on 190 snaps in a game that saw tight end Hayden Hurst and running back Bijan Robinson emerge as the only productive pass catchers for either team. Chark could take snaps from any and all of the three wideouts, with Marshall in particular most vulnerable of being demoted to a backup role.
