Rivera: Panthers 'not very optimistic' about Samuel's ankle

Noah Ferguson | 15 November, 2017, 01:07

Wide receiver Curtis Samuel's rookie year is over.

National Football League insider Adam Schefter tweeted Tuesday that the first-year receiver suffered ligament damage in his ankle during Monday's 45-21 victory over Miami and will be shut down for the remainder of the season. The Panthers later announced that Samuel will undergo season-ending ankle surgery.

Samuel was hurt when hurt when a defender rolled over his left ankle after an incompletion in the end zone early in the third quarter.

An MRI on Tuesday confirmed as much, leaving Samuel with 15 catches (on 26 targets) for 115 yards and four rushes for 64 yards in nine games as a rookie. "He made a tough catch when he got hit hard on a deep cross and held onto it".

Offensive coordinator Mike Shula said Samuel will be replaced by committee, referring to Kaelin Clay, Russell Sheppard and even running back Christian McCaffrey.

Samuel was a big part of Carolina's plan coming into the season as the slot receiver because of his speed and playmaking ability.

"It's kind of a collective effort", Shula said. There are some guys on our team that would say yes.

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