Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Remains sidelined with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) remains sidelined at practice, Max Henson of Panthers.com reports.

Marlowe has already missed the team's first two preseason games and has yet to be cleared for a return to the practice field. He remains without a timetable for a return and doesn't appear to be nearing full strength, which is a bit concerning with just two preseason games left on the schedule. Marlowe was originally fighting for a spot in the team's two-deep at safety, but the longer he's out, the further he could tumble down the the depth chart.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Going through all drills Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (back) went through all drills at Wednesday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Olsen has been bothered by back spasms of late, but his status continues to trend in the right direction as the Panthers' third preseason game approaches. Olsen's status for that game, a matchup with the Patriots on Friday, remains uncertain.

Panthers' Ed Dickson: Returns to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dickson (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Dickson's groin injury forced him out for a few weeks, so it's a good sign to see him back at practice. His status for the Panthers' preseason game Friday is unknown.

Panthers' Philly Brown: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brown (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday, David Newton of ESPN reports.

Brown's surgically-repaired shoulder took a big hit at Tuesday's practice, which has forced him to the sideline. While viewed as a precautionary measure, his ability to play in Friday's preseason game against the Patriots would clear up his current level of health.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Casting heat upon No. 1 WR Benjamin
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wide receivers coach Ricky Proehl hinted Funchess may be pushing Kelvin Benjamin for Carolina's No. 1 WR role, the team's official site reports. "To be honest with you, where Devin is right now and where Kelvin needs to get to, I think Devin is pushing Kelvin," Proehl said. "He's realizing, 'I've got to get back, I've got to push, because this guy (Funchess) is pretty dang good.'"

Benjamin entered the league in 2014 as a first-round draft pick and proceeded to finish the year as fantasy's 15th-highest scoring wide receiver. Funchess, on the other hand, was taken with a second-round selection in 2015 to presumably follow in the mold of Benjamin as the two profile similarly in size. Funchess was unable to replicate anywhere near the same level of success during his own rookie year (he finished as the 57th-ranked WR in 2015), though, even with Benjamin (knee) lost for the season. Looking ahead to 2016, both players figure to maintain fantasy appeal as key contributors in the Panthers' passing game, but TE Greg Olsen may have emerged as QB Cam Newton's favorite target in 2015, Ted Ginn is currently enjoying a late-career resurgence, and the Panthers attempted the seventh-fewest passes in the NFL last year. Point being, Newton has a trio of healthy and big-bodied receivers to go along with a proven deep threat at his disposal, and there may simply not be enough targets to go around for either Benjamin nor Funchess to approach the numbers Benjamin did during his rookie campaign, regardless of who ends up atop the depth chart.
