Marshall (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The rookie entered concussion protocol Week 6 and missed a Week 7 loss to the Giants. With No. 4 receiver Brandon Zylstra (hamstring) on injured reserve, Keith Kirkwood and Shi Smith both got playing time in Marshall's absence, combining for seven targets and 49 snaps. It could be the same deal again this Sunday at Atlanta if Marshall can't clear protocol by the end of the week.

Marshall (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: After he was diagnosed with a concussion coming out of the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings, Marshall was unable to practice in any capacity Wednesday through Friday. As a result, the Panthers' decision to rule Marshall out for the Week 7 matchup comes as little surprise. With Marshall sidelined for the first time this season and Alex Erickson (concussion) listed as questionable but uncertain to play Sunday, rookie Shi Smith could have a regular spot in three-wide sets alongside DJ Moore and Robby Anderson.

Marshall (concussion) didn't practice Thursday.
Analysis: With no practice activity since he was diagnosed with a concussion following Sunday's loss to the Vikings, Marshall doesn't appear to have taken a notable step forward in the NFL's five-step protocol for head injuries. Unless he returns to the field in some capacity for Friday's practice, Marshall looks on track to sit out this weekend's game against the Giants.

Marshall (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.
Analysis: It's no surprise Marshall hasn't cleared the necessary steps in the NFL's protocol for head injuries after taking a big hit from Vikings safety Xavier Woods this past Sunday. Marshall has had a slow start to his NFL career despite seeing at least 50 percent of the Panthers' offensive snaps in five of six games, hauling in 14 of 22 targets for 116 yards and no TDs. With Marshall and fellow wide receiver Alex Erickson diagnosed with concussions, the Panthers are left with Shi Smith at the position on the active roster behind starters DJ Moore and Robby Anderson.

Marshall sustained a concussion during Sunday's game against the Vikings, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.
Analysis: Marshall was the recipient of a brutal hit from safety Xavier Woods in the second quarter, drawing an unnecessary roughness penalty in the process. The rookie second-round pick remained on the turf for minutes before making his way to the sideline, and he'll officially finish Week 6 with one catch (on two targets) for nine yards. Alex Erickson and Shi Smith will be the candidates to get work as the Panthers' third receiver behind DJ Moore and Robby Anderson as long as Marshall is in the concussion protocol.

Marshall caught two of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Eagles.
Analysis: Marshall now sports just 16 receiving yards over Carolina's last two games, with quarterback Sam Darnold's struggles Sunday not helping any of his targets out. The rookie will hope superstar weapon Christian McCaffrey's (hamstring) potential return will help elevate the whole offense in Week 6 versus the Vikings.

Marshall caught one of three targets for two yards in Sunday's 36-28 loss to the Cowboys.
Analysis: Marshall played over 70 percent of Carolina's offensive snaps, yet hardly got involved in the passing game. The rookie second-rounder is still awaiting his first touchdown and hasn't topped 50 yards yet either, but Marshall's starting role alongside DJ Moore and Robby Anderson at least gives him upside as a complementary option going forward.

Marshall caught four of five targets for 48 yards in Thursday night's 24-9 win over the Texans.
Analysis: Marshall made a good impact on crossing routes, trailing only DJ Moore in all major receiving categories for the Panthers. The rookie second-rounder is yet to have his breakout game, but Marshall was remained steadily involved in Carolina's first three outings. In fact, with 10 catches, he actually sports twice as many grabs as teammate Robby Anderson. In Week 4 versus the Cowboys, Marshall will strive to continue his momentum while finding the end zone for the first time.

Marshall caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Saints.
Analysis: Marshall has hauled in three passes in both of his appearances as a pro, managing only modest yardage from his looks so far. On the bright side, the rookie played just over half of Carolina's offensive snaps Sunday, so he'll hope similar involvement enables him make a breakthrough in this Thursday's matchup against the Texans.
Sep 20, 2021 6:04 AM EST
Marshall caught three of six targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 19-14 win over the Jets.
Analysis: Marshall's regular-season debut saw him trail only Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore in targets, including a couple looks in the red zone. The second-rounder's final stats weren't overly impressive, but after a standout preseason, it's good to see Marshall remain regularly involved now that the games matter. Although fellow wideout Robby Anderson will surely garner more than Sunday's three targets in most games, Marshall's status as Carolina's third wideout gives him decent value going into Week 2's divisional matchup versus the Saints.
