Philly Brown May Be Starting, But He’s On Short Leash

Carolina announced Philly “formerly known as Corey” Brown and Ted Ginn, Jr. as the starting wideouts for the opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Brown, who struggled throughout the preseason, has held onto a starting role, not because of his play, but because of what he offers to a team that has very little talent and depth at wideout.  The loss of star receiver Kelvin Benjamin inflated Brown’s value to the team, despite his struggles this preseason.

His second drive resulted in a missed field goal, but Buffalo should be encouraged about how they were able to move the ball against the first unit.
