CHARLOTTE - The Panthers are mixing things up on offense this week as they try to spark something when they have the ball.
Wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. leads this week's list of inactives, the only mildly unexpected name because of injuries and numbers at other positions.
With Laviska Shenault Jr. back after missing the last three games with an ankle injury and Mike Strachan elevated for the week after catching a 45-yard shot at Chicago a week ago, the Panthers opted for some other options elsewhere on the roster instead of keeping Marshall up as a seventh receiver.
The rest of the inactives were fairly predictable, as rookie backup offensive linemen Ricky Lee and Nash Jensen joined the list with three guys already declared out because of injury.
That group includes tight end Hayden Hurst, cornerback CJ Henderson, and outside linebacker Marquis Haynes Sr..
With Henderson out and Jaycee Horn yet to be activated, the Panthers will start Dicaprio Bootle at cornerback opposite Donte Jackson.
They did activate linebacker Tae Davis, who signed this week for special teams depth.
