Even after parting with a third-round pick and a tight they really liked in Dan Arnold, the Carolina Panthers aren’t going to rush cornerback C.J. Henderson into the fold. They aren’t going to rush him back from injury either.

Among Sunday’s announced inactives was the second-year defensive back, who’s played sparingly in his first two games as a Panther. Henderson, despite being listed as a full participant in practice on Friday, will remain on the sideline due to a shoulder injury.

In Henderson’s place will be veteran Rashaan Melvin, who has once again been called up to the active roster. Melvin has served as a valuable depth piece at corner for the defense this year, having taken a healthy amount of snaps on the perimeter amidst numerous injuries.

Also receiving a call-up is punter Ryan Winslow. Winslow was signed on Thursday after the team placed starter Joseph Charlton on the injured reserve.

Here’s the full list of inactives for Carolina in Week 6:

CB C.J. Henderson
LB Shaq Thompson
DT Phil Hoskins
LB Kamal Martin
RB Spencer Brown
DE Darryl Johnson

And here’s who’s down for the Minnesota Vikings across the way:

QB Kellen Mond
LB Chazz Surratt
TE Ben Ellefson
DT Michael Pierce
DE Patrick Jones
WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette
