Terrace Marshall Jr. sees bump in playing time

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

Terrace Marshall Jr. is used to overcoming adversity in his career. Could he have another comeback of sorts in the works? The former Parkway and LSU star has often been non-existent in the Carolina offense, but Week 7 offered him an opportunity to get back in the mix. Let’s see if the wideout’s snap count continues to trend up.

LOCAL NFL STARS: 2022 Week 7 

Terrace Marshall Jr., Carolina (22, WR, Parkway)

Breakthrough week in terms of playing time. The LSU product was on the field for 86 percent of the Panthers’ offensive plays – his previous best this year was 45 percent in Week 6. TMJ hauled in two catches on three targets for 31 yards. 

Israel Mukuamu, Dallas (22, S, Parkway)

Saw limited action once again. Played seven snaps on defense against Detroit. 

Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys (29, QB, Haughton)

It wasn’t exactly a storybook return in terms of statistics, but he completed 19 of 25 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown in a victory against Detroit. 

Robert Rochell, Los Angeles Rams (24, DB, Fair Park)

Rams enjoyed their off week. Rochell has played more than three snaps on defense just once this season (Week 3 vs. Arizona).

L’Jarius Sneed, Kansas City (25, DB, Minden)

Collected six tackles, half a sack, a quarterback hit and a pass defended in a dominating victory at San Francisco. This season, quarterbacks are 39-of-52 passing for 390 yards and a touchdown when targeting a receiver covered by Sneed. 

Marquez Stevenson, Buffalo (23, WR, Northwood)

Still on injured reserve after foot surgery without a timetable to return.

Trent Taylor, Cincinnati (28, WR, Evangel)

His percentage of time with the offense (19) was a season high, but quarterback Joe Burrow still did not target the former Louisiana Tech star. Taylor returned three punts for 40 yards. He ranks sixth in the NFL with a 12.1-yard average punt return. 

Jerry Tillery, Los Angeles Chargers (25, DL, Evangel)

Played less than 50 percent of the snaps and recorded one tackle against Seattle. 

Ar’Darius Washington, Baltimore (22, S, Evangel)

After making his 2022 debut in Week 6, it was back to the practice squad in Week 7 and 8.

Devin White, Tampa Bay (24, LB, North Webster)

Posted 10 tackles against Baltimore on Thursday, after a five-tackle performance in Week 7 at Carolina.

Tre’Davious White, Buffalo (27, DB, Green Oaks)

It looks like White (knee) needs at least one more week.

Greedy Williams, Cleveland (24, DB, Calvary)

Only played 22 percent of the snaps, but did record three tackles against the Ravens.

Rodarius Williams, New York Giants (25, DB, Calvary)

Appears as if he is targeting a Week 10 game vs. Houston for a season debut following surgery for a bone spur in his knee. 

Brandon Wilson, Cincinnati (28, DB, Calvary Baptist)

On the PUP list.

Donovan Wilson, Dallas Cowboys (27, S, Woodlawn)

Solid play continued with seven tackles and a sack against Detroit. He’s been dazzling in coverage this season. He has allowed one touchdown, but quarterbacks are 14-of-24 passing for just 91 yards when targeting Wilson in coverage.
