Panthers make second-round rookie Terrace Marshall a healthy scratch

If there was any question that rookie receiver Terrace Marshall has been a disappointment this season in Carolina, the question was definitively answered by the Panthers’ inactive list for today’s game against the Dolphins.

Marshall is inactive despite not being injured.

Marshall has just 14 catches for 116 yards and no touchdowns this season. He’s been passed on the depth chart by fellow rookie receiver Shi Smith, a sixth-round pick who hasn’t played much this season but is active today while Marshall sits.

The 5-6 Panthers are hoping to make a run for an NFC wild card berth over the final six games of the season. If they make that run, Marshall may not be on the field for it.

  1. I hope he gets the message he needs to try harder and get better because not even being active as a healthy, second round pick is either and indictment of his practice and preparation or a punishment for something he did during the week.

  2. Too many dropped passes. He started last week as WR3, and Cam hit him perfectly a few times and he’s just dropping them. It was the big question for him at draft time, it was overlooked at LSU with so many weapons around him. But he wasn’t worth a 2nd rd pick. Glad they benched him
