Hayden Hurst caught all three of his targets Monday night, totaling 20 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Saints.
While he didn't find the end zone this week, his consistent hands and ability to make plays when called upon have been a bright spot in the Panthers' offense. His season stats now stand at 10 targets, eight receptions, and 61 receiving yards with one touchdown. Hurst's clutch catches in the fourth quarter, including a 9-yard gain that pushed the Panthers closer to the Saints' territory, highlight his value as a dependable option for quarterback B.Young. Looking ahead to Week 3, Hurst and the Panthers will face off against the Seattle Seahawks, where he'll look to continue his steady contributions.
