QB - CAR - IR
Week 12 Outlook
The Panthers placed QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) on injured reserve.
As expected. Darnold is expected to miss 4-6 weeks as he recovers from his shoulder injury. It's entirely up in the air as to whether or not he'll even get his starting job back upon returning. Carolina recently signed former franchise icon Cam Newton to take over as the team's starting signal caller. Darnold posted an ugly 2:8 TD:INT ratio over his final five games.
Sam Darnold (shoulder) is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks with a fractured scapula. He is expected to be placed on the IR as well.
Darnold has not played particularly well over the past weeks anyhow, but this injury will likely put an end on him having any real value for the rest of the fantasy football campaign. P.J. Walker will take over the starting role in Carolina, and it will be interesting to see if he can replicate his XFL success in the NFL.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Panthers QB Sam Darnold is expected to miss "several weeks" with a fractured scapula.
Darnold was previously considered to be day-to-day but his absence will last multiple games after further testing revealed the injury. P.J. Walker is expected to take over as Carolina's QB in the interim.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Panthers QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) is considered "day-to-day" after undergoing an MRI on Monday.
It seems as if Darnold has avoided a serious injury, but his recent play has been bad enough that the team might want to give him some rest anyway. Coach Matt Rhule said he wants to see what Darnold's health is looking like come Wednesday. It's a situation to monitor entering Week 10.
Panthers QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Monday, per coach Matt Rhule.
Rhuel says the focus is on Darnold's health. The Panthers' big offseason acquisition has struggled mightily as of late, and it's clear the team has become frustrated with his play. PJ Walker would start in Week 10 if Darnold isn't cleared medically.
