Wideout Terrace Marshall Jr. inactive at Miami

Terrace Marshall

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Panthers have changed up their receiver rotation.

Rookie wideout Terrace Marshall Jr., their second-round pick, is inactive today. He wasn't on the injury report this week. This season, he has 14 catches for 116 yards and no touchdowns.

Wide receiver Shi Smith, the sixth-round rookie from South Carolina is active for the game.

The Panthers will also actually start an offensive line they've used before, even if it's not on purpose.

Veteran guard John Miller, who suffered an ankle injury in practice Wednesday, didn't make the trip and was inactive for the game. That puts Trent Scott back in the starting lineup at right guard.

And with Dennis Daley staying in at left tackle (after not finishing the previous two games with a glute injury), it gave the Panthers a rare repeat of a starting lineup combination.

With Daley, Michael Jordan, Pat Elflein, Scott, and Taylor Moton from left to right, they'll have the same group that started the Arizona game (where they allowed no sacks and ran for 169 yards).

Also inactive for the Panthers were third quarterback Matt Barkley, safety Kenny Robinson, cornerback Rashaan Melvin, linebacker Kamal Martin, and tight end Colin Thompson.

They promoted practice squad wide receiver Matt Cole and tackle Austen Pleasants for this game (standard elevations), giving them some depth on special teams and the line.
