Curtis Samuel to undergo season-ending surgery

The Panthers announced Tuedsay that he will undergo season-ending surgery on his left ankle and will be placed on injured reserve.

A 2nd round (40th overall) pick by the Panthers in the 2017 NFL Draft, the versatile Samuel carved out a small role for himself in the Carolina offense this season.

Even after Samuel left the game, the Panthers continued to pile up yards and points in the 45-21 victory. "It was guys coming in and doing their job and knowing their assignments". He compiled career-high 5 catches for 45 yards before going down.

"It's kind of a collective effort", Shula said.


Monday night was a costly win for the Panthers. ". We're going to try hard to find ways to put guys in what they do best and then have them go do it". Among them, Russell Shepard is the best bet for regular targets, but Kaelin Clay and Brenton Bersin can expect an uptick in offensive usage.

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.

The good news for Carolina is Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen (broken foot) is set to come off injured reserve after this week's bye. Olsen has been on injured reserve with a foot injury, but is eligible to return and play against the Jets on November 26.
