Ted Ginn (knee) was listed as limited on Monday's injury report.

The Panthers didn't actually practice, but they had to provide an estimation since they play on Thanksgiving. Ginn should be fine for Thursday afternoon.
Nov 23 - 6:51 PM

Ted Ginn caught 5-of-8 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown and rushed twice for 12 yards Week 11 against the Redskins.

Ginn was his usual inefficient self, catching 62 percent of his targets but managing just 7.4 yards per reception. He looked quick after the catch all day despite the limited yardage total, and he made a great hands catch for a third-down conversion in the first quarter. Ginn got wide open from two yards out for his touchdown in the first half, and he should have had another long score after the break. Ginn looked good against an overmatched defense, but he has struggled despite steady targets most of the season. With the bye weeks done, Ginn is more of a desperation WR4.
Nov 22 - 4:14 PM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-8 targets for 45 yards Week 10 against the Titans.

Ginn continued his extremely inefficient ways on the offense side, but he contributed big plays on special teams. Ginn had a touchdown return called back on a penalty, but his 23-yard punt return set up the Panthers first score of the fourth quarter. Ginn remains the Panthers' No. 1 receiver, but he is not consistent enough to trust in any formats.
Nov 15 - 4:38 PM

Ted Ginn caught 1-of-4 targets for 20 yards in Carolina's Week 9 win over the Packers.

Ginn remains a big-play threat at age 30, but has been wildly inefficient, corralling only 21-of-50 targets this season. He's on pace for 42/726/6. He's a WR4 hail mary for re-draft purposes.
Nov 8 - 7:02 PM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-10 targets for 60 yards in the Panthers' Week 8 win over the Colts on Monday night.

Ginn was very nearly the goat on Monday night after dropping the would-be 56-yard game-winning touchdown in overtime. He roasted CB Vontae Davis on the play, and Cam Newton hit him perfectly in stride. The ball clanked off Ginn's hands and fell hopelessly to the ground. He redeemed himself later by catching a critical 12-yard pass. Ginn also beat CB Greg Toler for a 48-yard deep shot in the second quarter and had a big gain wiped out by a Greg Olsen OPI penalty. Ginn is getting a ton of work as the default No. 1 receiver, but has drop issues and is barely a WR4. He won't be a recommended start at home Week 9 against the Packers.
Nov 3 - 12:56 AM

Ted Ginn secured 5-of-8 targets for 59 yards and had one carry for 43 yards in Sunday night's Week 7 win over the Panthers.

Ginn's eight targets were a team high. He's been the Panthers' No. 1 receiver two of the last three weeks, but isn't a red-zone threat and will continue to struggle with consistency. Ginn won't be more than a WR4 for Week 8.
Oct 26 - 1:04 AM

Ted Ginn corralled one of four targets for 18 yards in the Panthers' Week 6 win over the Seahawks.

Ginn never had much of a chance against The Legion of Boom. He’ll have a much easier matchup next week against the Eagles.
Oct 18 - 8:59 PM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards and two touchdowns in Carolina's Week 4 win over the Bucs.

It was a dream day if you used Ginn in a DFS tournament. The veteran deep threat now has three scores on only 12 catches this season, but appears in sync with Cam Newton. Ginn was averaging 7.3 targets coming into Week 4. He'll be a fantasy no-go against the Legion of Boom in Week 6, but will remain a "pick your spots" WR4 going forward.
Oct 4 - 4:58 PM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-6 targets for 93 yards Week 3 against the Saints.

Ginn led all Panthers' wideouts in targets for the second straight week and looked dangerous as a deep threat against an overmatched Brandon Browner, who he beat for a 55-yard gain in the third quarter. Ginn is clearly the second option in the passing game behind Greg Olsen, and that gives him value. He will be a boom-or-bust WR5 next week against the Bucs.
Sep 27 - 6:01 PM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-9 targets for 41 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers' Week 2 win over the Texans.

Ginn led all Panthers wideouts in targets, but finished second on the team behind Greg Olsen's 14 looks. On his 25-yard touchdown, Ginn beat Texans CB A.J. Buoye on a double-move and twirl up the left sideline. Ginn also committed a number of drops. He's nothing more than a WR5 but could find some success deep against a burnable Saints secondary in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 5:52 PM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-7 targets for 54 yards Week 1 against the Jaguars.

Ginn dropped a sure touchdown in the first quarter and struggled to find separation throughout. Ginn is not a No. 1 receiver, but he has been forced into the role in the Panthers' sad receiver corps. He may have some big games, but he cannot be trusted next week against the Texans.
Sep 13 - 5:14 PM

Ted Ginn caught three passes for 30 yards in the Panthers' third preseason game.

Ginn started and was targeted six times. He outplayed Corey Brown, who struggled with drops for the second straight week. Ginn isn't on the redraft radar despite Carolina's wideout situation. He should be reduced to a situational deep threat when Devin Funchess returns.
Aug 28 - 10:22 PM

Panthers agreed to terms with KR/WR Ted Ginn on a two-year, $4.2 million deal.

Cut by Arizona last month, Ginn was free to sign immediately. Ginn spent the 2013 season in Carolina, logging 36 catches and a career-high five touchdowns while showing some deep-ball chemistry with Cam Newton. He'll replace Philly Brown as the Panthers' new primary kick returner and will fill a situational deep-threat role. He may even have to serve as Newton's No. 3 wideout.
Mar 9 - 9:17 AM

Free agent KR/WR Ted Ginn visited the Titans on Tuesday.

He'll visit the 49ers on Wednesday. Ginn played for San Francisco from 2010-2012, and the Niners are in dire need of a return man. The Titans are in the same boat with Leon Washington a free agent. Ginn isn't a threat as a receiver.
