Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 2 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

The veteran picked up a leg injury while blocking on a screen pass, but managed to return to the game seemingly with no lingering pain. His usage down the stretch in the game waned, indicating the coaching staff perhaps did not want to risk further injury. Cotchery made only one catch on a quick flip to the sideline off a zone read look. He should remain the second option in this muddled passing attack behind Greg Olsen.

2015 Week 1 vs JAX (6 / 4 / 45 / 1 rec)

The old head among the wide receivers showed why he could prove to be an underrated asset for the Panthers this season. Showing savvy with his routes, timing with his quarterback and a willingness to fight for yardage, Cotchery was a thorn in the side of the Jaguars' defense. When the Panthers got into the red zone, Cotchery was the first player targeted on a quick slant; however, Cam Newton's pass was placed a yard too far inside for Cotchery to snag it. The veteran showed excellent awareness on a Newton scramble in the third quarter, settling down in a spot devoid of Jaguars and providing an easy outlet for his quarterback. Cotchery eventually made up for the missed red zone opportunity by reeling in the Panthers' lone touchdown pass of the game. Lined up as the Z to the right of the formation, Cotchery allowed Greg Olsen in the slot to his left to run off the coverage, then ran underneath Olsen's route on a skinny post. Newton found him with a laser pass that left no doubt. A final flourish came for Cotchery on a crucial 3rd and 10 as the Panthers were backed up inside their 20-yard line. The veteran made a catch short of the sticks, but showed a terrific second effort and burst of strength to convert.

Panthers | Carolina inactives include Luke Kuechly (Sun Oct 4, 11:41 AM) - The Carolina Panthers have declared OG Amini Silatolu, RB Brandon Wegher, OT Daryl Williams, S Dean Marlowe, WR Jerricho Cotchery, WR Kevin Norwood, LB Luke Kuechly inactive for Week 4.

Our View: It's time to wonder when we'll see Kuechly again. It might sound harsh to say his absence is indefinite, but concussions that last longer than two weeks are scary propositions.

Panthers | Jerrico Cotchery ruled out (Fri Oct 2, 03:08 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and has been ruled out for the Week 4 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Panthers | Jerricho Cotchery to miss a few weeks (Mon Sep 28, 01:07 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery (ankle) is making progress in his recovery from an ankle injury but likely will not return to the field until after the Week 5 bye.

Our View: That could lead to more of rookie Devin Funchess. The no1 WR in Carolina is Ted Ginn Jr. as he seems to have the best chemistry with QB Cam Newton. We'll see if Funchess can do more with an increased role.
