    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess is the leading candidate to replace WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) as the X receiver, and head coach Ron Rivera said Funchess' high football IG will ease the transition.

    Huddle Up: This isn't a big surprise. Funchess has a similar skill set to Benjamin and more upside than Philly Brown or Jericho Cotchery. Funchess is set to see a lot of targets now that Benjamin is out for the year.

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (hamstring) is expected to miss the Panthers' second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22 but may be able to return to practice Monday, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    Huddle Up: The second-round pick is needed more than ever with No. 1 wideout Kelvin Benjamin lost for the season earlier this week, but count on the Panthers taking extra precaution in making sure that the rookie isn't rushed back into action.

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess suffered a hamstring injury during practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, and could miss a few days, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    Huddle Up: Wow, not exactly a good day for Carolina wideouts in joint workouts with the Dolphins, and with Kevlin Benjamin (knee) also hurt Wednesday, Cam Newton's top WRs may be Corey Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Ted Ginn Jr. for a spell.

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess impressed during offseason workouts and could have a big role in 2015. He played all three receiver positions, and his 6-foot-4 frame could create mismatches. Funchess (toe) cited a toe injury for the reason his numbers were disappointing in his final season at the University of Michigan. 'We never got to see the full Devin Funchess at Michigan because I did play one season at wide receiver, and I was battling through an injury,' Funchess said Monday, June 29. Funchess said his toe injury was a torn ligament with some cracked bones and ruptured cartilage.

    Huddle Up: Funchess is a similar target to the Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin, and that worked well last season. He was drafted for his upside, and if he's healthy he'll give Cam Newton another big target down the field.

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess has been seeing extra snaps while WR Kelvin Benjamin (hamstring) is sidelined, and head coach Ron Rivera said the extra work for Funchess has been an unintended plus.

    Huddle Up: Definitely an added bonus for the second-round pick in his bid to win the starting job opposite Benjamin.

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess has played all three receiver positions during minicamp.

    Huddle Up: Expect to see the 6-4, 230-pound second-round pick utilized all over the field -- including at tight end -- as the Panthers try to create as many favorable mismatches as they can.

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess was carted off the field during practice Friday, May 8, but is just dealing with leg cramps, according to the team.

    Huddle Up: Just a scare and definitely a much better fate for the Panthers' second-round pick than the news from further south Friday concerning Jaguars No. 1 pick Dante Fowler.
