Carolina Panthers News

Curtis Samuel, Expected to suit up Sunday

Samuel (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Saints, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Samuel was inactive last week against the Bears, but it looks like he'll be back for Sunday's 1:00 kickoff after a one-game absence. In the five games he has suited up for, Samuel hasn't been a high-volume option in the Carolina passing game (19 catches on 23 targets for 183 yards), but he has at least picked up some extra touches in that span, having also logged 15 carries for 63 yards.

Curtis Samuel, Questionable again

Samuel (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in New Orleans.

Analysis: Samuel missed the Week 6 game against Chicago after logging three straight limited practices. He followed the same routine in practice this week, so it's best to treat him as truly questionable ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Keith Kirkwood filled in as Carolina's No. 3 receiver last week, playing 51 percent of snaps and catching one of two targets for 13 yards.

Joey Slye, Activated from COVID-19 list

Slye was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: Slye's activation after just two days suggests the kicker's placement on the list was simply precautionary. He has connected on 16 of 18 field-goal attempts through six games this season and will look to build on that strong start Sunday against the Saints.

Graham Gano, May be nursing right leg injury

Gano appeared to tweak his right leg during his final kickoff in the fourth quarter of Thursday's 22-21 loss to the Eagles, Tom Canavan of the Associated Press reports.

Analysis: Gano wasn't needed again following that kickoff with just over six minutes remaining, as the Eagles scored a go-ahead touchdown on the possession before Giants quarterback Daniel Jones coughed up a game-sealing fumble with less than 30 seconds left. Because the Giants were unable to advance the ball far enough down the field for a potential game-winning field goal, it's unclear if Gano would have been healthy enough to kick. Gano's status should gain clarity when the Giants release their first Week 8 injury report next Thursday.

Curtis Samuel, Limited again Thursday

Samuel (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: Since it was revealed Samuel was dealing with a knee injury last week, his practice reps have been monitored closely, and he was even spotted in a green non-contact jersey Thursday, per Simmons. Samuel has one more opportunity to be a full participant this week, but the fact he hasn't taken contact yet isn't a great sign for his availability Sunday at New Orleans.
