Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (ankle) and tight end Tommy Tremble (hip) missed practice on Wednesday. Both players were ruled out in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans, with Shenault tweaking his ankle while Tremble injured his hip. With a few more practices left ahead of Sunday's meeting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there's a chance they could practice, at least in a limited capacity. However, neither Tremble nor Shenault have done much this season in terms of production, so their statuses won't impact managers either way.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (ankle) didn't return to the Week 12 loss the Titans. The wideout returned briefly after sustaining an ankle injury. However, he was eventually ruled out, finishing the day with one catch for eight yards. Shenault hasn't been much of a factor for fantasy managers throughout the 2023-24 campaign, catching only nine passes for 52 yards. Considering he's been banged up of late, there's a chance he won't play in Week 13 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That said, his absence will have a minimal impact on anything outside of the special teams unit.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (ankle) is officially active for the Week 11 game against the visiting Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. As a result, Terrace Marshall Jr. will be a healthy scratch. Shenault was listed as questionable for this one, but the 25-year-old will make his return after a three-game absence. Still, he's well off the fantasy radar and could be eased back into the offense as a depth option behind wideouts Adam Thielen and rookie Jonathan Mingo. Given how bad Carolina's offense has been in 2023 with rookie quarterback Bryce Young at the helm, only Thielen has been a consistent fantasy option this year. Shenault has just seven catches for 43 yards and no touchdowns in six games so far this season.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (ankle) returned to a full practice on Friday but remains questionable to play in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Shenault has a chance to return to action this weekend after missing the last three games. But if he does make it back to play against Dallas, the Panthers are prepared to limit his snaps, making him avoidable in all fantasy starting lineups as a depth option and nothing more. In six games played for the Panthers in 2023, the 25-year-old has hauled in all seven of his targets for just 43 yards and no touchdowns. Shenault remains off the fantasy radar for now.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault (ankle) was a limited participant in the team's practice on Wednesday. Shenault has missed the last three games for the Panthers while nursing an ankle injury. But his limited practice reps to begin the week is a good sign for his availability in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys. He'll have two more chances to upgrade his practice status before Sunday's game. Even if he suits up, though, he should likely only be started in extremely deep leagues. The 25-year-old wideout has just seven catches for 43 yards on the year.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault (ankle) did not practice on Tuesday, making it two straight missed practices to open the week as his team prepares to face the Chicago Bears in Week 10's Thursday game. Shenault is dealing with a high-ankle sprain that has kept him sidelined since Week 6. He is looking unlikely to be on the field again on Thursday when the Panthers and Bears kick things off. Shenault has compiled seven catches for 43 yards while adding 12 carries for 55 yards across six games in 2023.

Updating a previous item, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. The 25-year-old did not practice all week and has not seen action since suffering an ankle sprain in Week 6. So far in 2023, he has caught seven passes for 43 yards and logged 12 carries for 55 yards on the ground. While he is largely irrelevant for fantasy purposes, his absence in Week 9 will allow Jonathan Mingo and Terrace Marshall to soak up a few more snaps.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in the team's loss to the Miami Dolphins. He was carted to the locker room, where X-rays came back negative. The Panthers are now on their bye week, which will give Shenault extra time to recover. However, high-ankle sprains tend to keep players out for several weeks. The former second-round pick is used in more of a gadget role and doesn't receive a lot of touches on a week-to-week basis. Even when he's healthy, Shenault is off of fantasy radars.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (leg) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Week 6 versus the Miami Dolphins. It's worth noting that the Panthers are now saying the injury pertains to the receiver's fibula. He caught three passes for 15 yards and also added a two-yard rush before departing. Shenault has primarily operated as a depth piece for Carolina this season, so his injury doesn't impact the depth chart too much. The Panthers' passing attack will continue to run through Adam Thielen, Jonathan Mingo, and D.J. Chark Jr. on Sunday.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol from an incident of contact at training camp practice on Monday. Shenault is competing for a spot on Carolina's roster heading into the 2023 regular season, so this won't help his cause as he competes with guys like Shi Smith and Damiere Byrd. The 24-year-old has yet to catch a pass through two preseason games on three targets. The former second-round pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020 caught a career-low 27 passes on 32 targets for 272 yards and one touchdown in 13 games (four starts) in his first year with the Panthers in 2022. Shenault is well off the fantasy radar in upcoming drafts.
