Devin Funchess Injury Updates

Colts WR Parris Campbell fractured his hand in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, HC Frank Reich said. The rookie will undergo surgery and "miss some time," Reich said. The team is hoping not to place him on IR, but Campbell figures to miss multiple weeks. It's unfortunate timing as he was in line to assume a bigger role with T.Y. Hilton out with his calf injury. The Colts are now down to Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Deon Cain as their healthy WRs. We'll see if Devin Funchess is ready to return from his broken collarbone.

Colts WR Devin Funchess suffered a broken collarbone in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Funchess is likely heading for surgery. Expect the wideout to miss at least half the season. His injury will leave more available for fellow WRs Deon Cain and Parris Campbell.

Colts WR Devin Funchess appeared to hurt his left shoulder late in Sunday's game against the Chargers. We'll pass along an update on his status when we get one.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess is expected to return today from the back injury that cost him Week 12, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Funchess endured sluggish production over the past 4 games he played and isn't a terrific option, but he's on the radar at least vs. a terrible Bucs defense.

Update: Rapoport adds that Funchess will play on a "limited basis" today. "The team will work him back slowly." We'd try not to use Funchess in fantasy lineups, despite the plus matchup.

The Eagles added CB Jalen Mills to the injury report Thursday, when a hamstring issue limited his participation. HC Doug Pederson told reporters Friday morning that he expects Mills to be fine to face Carolina on Sunday, though. That should keep Mills at his usual level of IDP consideration. His hamstring could add upside to Carolina outside WRs Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith, though.

The Panthers announced that TE Greg Olsen re-broke his right foot and is considered "month-to-month," although he surprisingly isn't having surgery. Olsen missed 9 total games with the same injury last year -- 8 to start and then 1 more after aggravating the issue. Expect him to be out at least that long this time around. Olsen is droppable in redraft leagues. His absence leaves 4th-round rookie Ian Thomas as Carolina's primary pass-catching TE. The Indiana product boasts a 91st percentile SPARQ score and posted a 3-37-1 line this preseason. He's worth an add in TE-premium leagues like the FFPC. WR Devin Funchess and RB Christian McCaffrey should also see more targets with Olsen sidelined.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Bucs. He got in just a limited practice on Friday after aggravating that shoulder injury last week. Funchess is a risk/reward WR2 vs. Tampa’s 32nd-ranked WR defense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) is expected to play against the Bucs today. He's been battling this shoulder injury for a few weeks now and aggravated it in last Sunday's win over the Packers. He got in just 1 limited practice this week. It adds some risk to Funchess' Week 16 profile, but he also has plenty of upside vs. Tampa's 32nd-ranked WR defense.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's been battling that shoulder injury for a while now and aggravated it last week. We haven't heard that Funchess is in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Bucs, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (toe) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s safe to keep in Week 13 fantasy lineups. Funchess’ matchup will get a big boost if Saints CB Marshon Lattimore is unable to play. He's listed as questionable with his ankle injury.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen told reporters after Sunday's win over the Bills that he has a broken foot. We should get a timetable for his return sometime over the next 24 hours, but Olsen figures to be sidelined upwards of 8 weeks. He's a candidate for IR-designated-to-return. The injury strips Carolina of its most reliable pass-catcher. Olsen has posted 77+ catches and 1,000+ yards in 3 straight seasons. And he hasn't missed a game since his 2007 rookie year. Ed Dickson will step in as the Panthers' starting TE but won't be much of a fantasy option. Most of Olsen's target figure to go to Kelvin Benjamin, Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess is having an "excellent camp," writes the Charlotte Observer's Jordan Rodrigue. WR Curtis Samuel, meanwhile, continues to be sidelined by a hamstring injury. Funchess is locked into a starting spot on the outside opposite Kelvin Benjamin. He's been inefficient through 2 NFL seasons but is a former 2nd-round pick who's still just 23 years old. Funchess is worth a look at his dirt-cheap price tag.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess has been placed on IR with the knee injury he suffered in last week's loss to the Falcons. He'll miss Sunday's finale vs. the Bucs. Funchess finishes his 2nd season with a 23-371-4 line in 15 appearances. All 3 marks were down from his 2015 rookie campaign.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess suffered a knee injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Falcons and is officially questionable to return. He hauled in just 1 of 5 targets for 9 yards before exiting. The 2nd-year wideout hasn't topped 3 catches in a game all season.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess left Sunday's game at Atlanta with a toe injury. We'll see about the severity of the injury, but Funchess has drawn only 13 targets through 4 games, with no more than 4 in any contest. He's not a fantasy factor right now anyway.

Beat writer Joseph Person called Panthers WR Devin Funchess the “star” of OTAs. The Michigan product has shown “terrific” hands while looking more “fluid” as a route runner. Checking in at 6’4, 225 pounds, there’s plenty of room for the 22-year-old Funchess to grow. He’s an intriguing target in drafts, especially if Kelvin Benjamin (torn ACL) struggles to reach pre-injury form.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess sat out Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury.  The team doesn't consider it serious, but it's not a good start as the rookie looks to help replace WR Kelvin Benjamin.  According to insider Steve Reed,  Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Ted Ginn are currently ahead of Funchess on the depth chart.  Funchess still has the most upside of the group, but we're not drafting him as more than a bench stash.
