Panthers rookie Curtis Samuel out for remainder of season

Curtis Samuel to undergo season-ending surgery

"They weren't very optimistic", Rivera said.

In 9 games, Samuel made 15 catches for 115 yards and took 4 carries for 64 yards, though he did not find the end zone in the 2017 season.

The Panthers have only four other receivers on their active roster - Devin Funchess, Russell Shepard, Kaelin Clay and Brenton Bersin - but Damiere Boyd is eligible to come off injured reserve for the team's game against the Saints on December 3. "There's some guys on the team that would say yeah", Shula said. The injury occurred in Monday night's win over Miami. He should be ready for the November 26 game against the New York Jets.

Samuel's best games came in the last 2 weeks.

As a junior at Ohio State in 2016, Samuel was used as the Buckeyes' H-Back.


The Panthers are in the hunt for a playoff berth but the offense it began with to start the season looks a whole lot different from what it's comprised of the rest of the season.

McCaffrey, the former Stanford star, leads the team in receptions with 57 for 433 yards and three touchdowns.

The Panthers easily defeated the Dolphins at home at Bank of America Stadium 45-21.

"One of the best things that happened after Curtis [went out] was we didn't feel we missed a beat, " Shula said. "Guys coming in and doing their jobs and knowing their assignments".
