News: Brown (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game in Dallas.
Impact: Limited in practice all week, Brown didn't signal whether his DNP streak will stop at one game or extend to two. However, active status may not yield much fruit, as his absence this past Sunday allowed rookie Devin Funchess to make his most significant impact as a professional. At best, Brown is the third option in the Panthers' 28th-ranked passing attack.
News: Ginn (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game at Dallas, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Ginn emerged from Week 11 with a knee injury, but it was revealed to be slight due to his ability to practice in full both Tuesday and Wednesday. He currently ranks second among Panthers receivers with 66 targets, which could translate to success against a Dallas secondary that has allowed 15.5 YPC and two touchdowns to wideouts over the last three contests.
