Ted Ginn caught 2-of-5 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

Ginn had a touchdown overturned in the first quarter, but remained a non-factor behind Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen. He muffed a punt that led to a 49ers touchdown in the second half. Ginn is droppable in re-draft leagues.

Ted Ginn hauled in his only target for five yards Thursday night against the Broncos.

Ginn saw plenty of work with the first-team offense, but he was not targeted until the final offensive play of the game, a nice sideline catch to get the Panthers in better field goal position. Graham Gano missed anyway. He did gain 20 yards on an end around early in the game, but it looks like his role will be fluid week-to-week. He is at best an upside bench stash.

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-6 targets for 18 yards Friday night against the Patriots.

Ginn did not look great Friday night and dropped two passes in the two-minute drill, but he did make something out of nothing on a screen pass and was inches away from connecting on a long pass in the first half. He also continues to play in two-wide sets over Devin Funchess, and actually saw the most snaps with the first-team offense. Ginn will be even more boom-or-bust this season, but he should return value, especially in best-ball leagues.

Ted Ginn caught a 61-yard touchdown in the Panthers' second preseason game Saturday afternoon.

Ted Ginn giveth, Ted Ginn giveth away. Ginn giveth against the Titans, turning an intermediate target in traffic into a house call when he caught Cam Newton's bullet deep down the middle and outraced Tennessee's secondary to pay dirt. Ginn looks to be a staple in two-receiver sets across from Kelvin Benjamin. He's one of our favorite late-round targets in best-ball drafts.

The Panthers could use Ted Ginn on kick returns.

With Kelvin Benjamin returning, Ginn doesn’t project for more than a situational deep threat role on offense. The Panthers want to use special teams to get him more touches. Ginn will also remain Carolina’s punt returner.

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-10 targets for 74 yards in the Panthers' Super Bowl loss to the Broncos.

Ginn was catch-less until he got wide open deep down the middle for a 45-yard gain early in the second half, setting up a 44-yard field goal that was shanked off the upright by Graham Gano. A third-quarter Ginn drop deep down the middle directly resulted in a deflected interception to Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan. Ginn ran out of bounds too frequently and was an unreliable passing-game target for most of the year, despite his obvious big-play ability. Ginn turns 31 this April and is owed a reasonable $1.4 million. He'll be back with the Panthers, but ideally with a much smaller role than Ginn was forced to play in 2015.

Ted Ginn secured 2-of-2 targets for 52 yards and rushed once for a 22-yard touchdown in the Panthers' NFC Championship Game win over the Cardinals.

Shadowed by Patrick Peterson, Ginn got open in Peterson's coverage for a gain of 13 on Carolina's first drive. A possession later, Ginn peeled off an explosive 32-yard punt return, slipping on the turf at the end or else he might've been gone. The return set up Ginn's 22-yard touchdown run on a reverse. Late in the first half, Ginn drew a holding call on Peterson for an automatic first down. Ginn's big play in the second half went deep down the left sideline, gaining 39 yards behind Jerraud Powers. Ginn was the Panthers' biggest playmaker in the first half of Sunday's contest. He'll mainly deal with Broncos RCB Bradley Roby in the Super Bowl.

Ted Ginn didn't catch his lone target in the Panthers' Divisional Round win over the Seahawks.

Returning from a knee injury after sitting out Week 17, Ginn simply wasn't much of a factor. Cam Newton threw for just 161 yards, as the Panthers hammered the run in the first half before getting shutout in the second half. Ginn will likely see a heavy dose of Patrick Peterson in the NFC Championship.

Ted Ginn (knee) is active for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Seahawks.

As expected. Ginn sat out Friday's practice with a knee injury but promised he would play on Sunday. Ginn's presence as a deep threat should give Greg Olsen more room to operate. Seattle has struggled to cover tight ends this year and gave up 131 yards to Olsen back in Week 6.
Jan 17 - 11:47 AM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Ted Ginn (knee) looked "spry" in his return to practice on Saturday.

Ginn missed Friday's session with a minor knee issue but it looks like he'll be out there Sunday against the Legion of Boom. Ginn didn't have much luck against Seattle in Week 6. He caught just one of four targets for 18 yards in that game.
Jan 17 - 8:53 AM

Ted Ginn (knee) said he plans to play in Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Seahawks.

"I’m going to be where I’ve always been," he said. "Ted Ginn is 100 percent for everything." Ginn missed Friday's practice but it sounds like his absence was precautionary. He hasn't played since Week 16 against the Falcons.
Jan 15 - 1:15 PM

Ted Ginn (knee) did not practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Seahawks.

Ginn wasn't even on the injury report Wednesday and Thursday, getting in full practices, so being downgraded to DNP on Friday is a concern. It could simply be a maintenance day, as coach Rob Rivera said he expects Ginn to play. Keep an eye on Ginn over the weekend just to be certain.
Jan 15 - 12:06 PM

Ted Ginn (knee) is practicing Thursday.

Ginn sat out the regular-season finale, but he is not even listed on the injury report this week. He will be a full go against the Seahawks. Ginn was limited to one catch for 18 yards in the Panthers' visit to Seattle in Week 6.

Ted Ginn (knee) is practicing Wednesday.

Ginn sat out the regular-season finale, but was never really expected to be in danger of missing the playoffs. He'll be back as the Panthers' deep threat against the Seahawks and second in line for targets behind Greg Olsen.
