Manhertz (foot) is active for Sunday's season-opening tilt against the Cowboys.
Both Manhertz and Greg Olsen (back) are active Sunday after shaking off questionable designations, giving Cam Newton his full complement of tight ends against the Cowboys.
Manhertz (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Cowboys, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Manhertz was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list and was a limited participant in practice this week to earn the questionable tag. The 26-year-old sustained the injury during minicamp in mid-June and is likely to serve as the Panthers' No. 3 tight end, if able to suit up Sunday.
Manhertz has been sidelined since injuring his foot during an offseason minicamp. He is expected to provide depth at tight end behind Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas, while also aiding special teams. The 26-year-old should not be targeted in the fantasy realm unless injuries occur ahead of him.
Manhertz injured his foot during minicamp and it's uncertain when he'll be ready to hit the practice field. Once healthy, Manhertz will need to fend off fourth-round rookie Ian Thomas for the No. 2 job behind starting tight end Greg Olsen.
Manhertz suffered a foot injury in minicamp and is working toward a full recovery. While the injury isn't overly severe, his absence from the start of training camp is an unfortunate development. He's expected to compete for the backup tight end role behind Greg Olsen. With Manhertz expected to miss time, look for Ian Thomas to get a chance to make the most of some extra reps early on in camp as he battles for the same slot.
