The “profundity” a piece of the Panthers’ profundity diagram seemed to endure a shot Friday as quarterback Sam Darnold left the field on a truck with a lower leg injury in the group’s preseason Week 3 game against the Bills. Bison quarterback Josh Allen and a few Panthers players wished him well as he was hauled away.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport detailed that the Panthers accept Darnold experienced a high lower leg sprain and that he’ll go through a MRI Saturday to decide whether there is further harm.
Darnold was as of late named the reinforcement to Baker Mayfield in Carolina, and that implies the Panthers’ No. 2 quarterback in Week 1 could be P.J. Walker. Newbie Matt Corral (foot) is out for the season. QB profundity could before long turn into a difficult issue.
After the game, a journalist got some information about the chance of marking Cam Newton for profundity. Rhule didn’t excuse the thought insane.
“Scott (Fitterer) and I will discuss that, and clearly Cam would need to say something regarding that,” Rhule expressed, alluding to the Panthers’ senior supervisor. “There’d be a great deal of things we’d need to check out. You all know my sentiments on Cam. My experience with him was phenomenal. Presumably too soon right now to express a lot of about that.”
What are the Panthers’ ongoing choices at reinforcement quarterback?
The central issue for the Panthers currently is how Darnold’s physical issue affects the quarterback position.
In the NFL, having a reinforcement quarterback who will not effectively lose games is critical, on the grounds that wounds occur. Furthermore, Mayfield won’t have a limitless rope as the starter, regardless of whether he is superior to Darnold.
Walker finished 36 of 66 passes for the Panthers last season, with one score to three capture attempts. In his one beginning, he finished 22 of 29 passes for 167 yards in a 34-10 wire-to-wire prevail upon the Cardinals.
Newton scrambled for a score and tossed for one more in that game, his most memorable after re-marking with the Panthers. Carolina brought him back after Darnold experienced a broke scapula. His return ended up being not exactly victorious: he went 0-5 as a starter regardless of starting with areas of strength for an against Washington.
