Listed as Questionable, Ted Ginn Jr. Says ‘I Feel Fine’

Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. made a surprise appearance on the Carolina Panthers' injury report two days before their divisional round game with Seattle.

Ginn is listed as questionable after he sat out Friday's practice with a knee injury that forced him to miss the regular-season finale.

"Just a little soreness. That's what happens when you have a little injury, I guess," Ginn said.

"I feel fine. Everything that went on today was on the coaches and the staff, so I've got to do what they tell me to do."

Ginn was a full participant Wednesday and Thursday, but Panthers' trainers became concerned when he complained of soreness Thursday afternoon.

"We took him in to see the doctor just to make sure and the doc said having a day off would be good for him," coach Ron Rivera said.

"Hopefully he's full go. We'll see how he is tomorrow."

Ginn was on the practice field Friday, but he was limited to tossing passes to receivers during the portion of practice open to the media. Afterward, he made it clear he has no plans to sit out Sunday.

"I'll be good, 100 percent. Ted Ginn is 100 percent for everything."

Only two other players were on the Panthers' injury report this week. Defensive end Kony Ealy, who went home sick Thursday, practiced Friday and is probable. Running back Fozzy Whittaker is out with a high ankle sprain.
