Clay (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Clay was unable to practice Wednesday before logging limited sessions Thursday and Friday due to his minor shoulder injury, but the Panthers' punt returner will be able to take the field Sunday. His fantasy value remains limited, however, as he's notched just three receptions all season.
Clay is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings with a shoulder injury.
The injury prevented Clay from practicing Wednesday and rendered him a limited participant in sessions Thursday and Friday. Clay has logged more than 20 offensive snaps in each of the past three weeks, but has only been targeted five times in that span, hauling in two receptions. It may not be long until Damiere Byrd, who was activated from injured reserve ahead of last week's loss to the Saints, passes Clay up for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart at wide receiver.
Clay caught his lone target for a 12-yard gain in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Saints. He also lost a fumble on a punt return during the fourth quarter.
Clay returned a punt for a touchdown last week, but he committed a costly error on special teams this time around. Clay's 13 receiving yards were his most since joining the Panthers, but his spare usage in the passing game severely restricts his fantasy utility.
Clay rushed once for 29 yards and failed to haul in any of his three targets, but he returned a punt 60 yards for a touchdown in Sunday's 35-27 win over the Jets.
Clay didn't connect with quarterback Cam Newton, but his versatile skill set figures to serve him well with rookie Curtis Samuel sidelined for the remainder of the season. After flashing his shiftiness on a punt return and handoff, Clay will look to get more involved in the passing game Sunday in New Orleans.
Clay caught his lone target for five yards in Monday night's 45-21 win over the Dolphins.
Clay hauled in the lone look his way, giving him his second career reception, but the 25-year-old could be in line for more snaps now that Curtis Samuel (ankle) has been ruled out for the season. While Brenton Bersin knows Carolina's playbook better, the shifty Clay sits ahead of him on the depth chart, trailing only Devin Funchess and Russell Shepard at the moment.
