Former Parkway star Terrace Marshall Jr. had a solid NFL debut Sunday in the Carolina Panthers’ 19-14 victory over the New York Jets in Charlotte, N.C.
The Panthers’ second-round pick caught three passes for 26 yards. He had the team’s third-most catches behind Christian McCaffrey (9-89) and DJ Moore (6-80).
Marshall’s first NFL catch came Carolina’s third possession. Sam Darnold hit Marshall for eight yards on 2-and-15 from the Jets 42.
His second catch came on third-and-1 from the Jets 38 late in the second quarter. The 11-yard gain gave the Panthers a first down at the 27.
One play later Darnold scored, giving Carolina a 16-0 lead with 35 seconds left in the half.
Marshall’s lone reception of the second half was a 7-yard gain on third-and-9 from the Jets 13.
Ryan Santosa’s 29-yard field goal put the Panthers on top 19-8 with 8:42 left to play in the game.
