Lands future pact

The Panthers signed Hyman to a reserve/future contract Monday, Will Bryan of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Through three years in the NFL, Hyman has suited up in two games, recording a pair of catches for 34 yards. The 25-year-old will compete for a depth role in 2021.

Returns from COVID list

Hyman (undisclosed) was restored to Carolina's practice squad from the COVID-19 list Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was first placed on the practiced squad injured list in late November, and he was moved to the COVID list in early December. Hyman is now healthy and back on the Panthers' practice squad.

Shifts to COVID list

Hyman (undisclosed) was placed on Carolina's practice squad COVID-19 list Monday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old landed on the practice squad injury list in late November, and he's now been moved to the COVID list. Hyman should revert back to the injury list once he clears the league's virus protocols.

Out with injury

Hyman (undisclosed) was placed on Carolina's practice squad injured list Saturday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was let go by the Panthers at roster cutdowns but remained with the organization on the practice squad. It's unclear how long Hyman is expected to be unavailable.

Let go by Carolina

The Panthers waived Hyman on Saturday, David Newton of reports.

Analysis: Hyman capped off the 2019 season by making his NFL debut with the Buccaneers and suiting up in two games, recording two receptions for 34 yards. The Panthers have a solid wide-receiver corps, though, so Hyman was facing an uphill battle. He'll seek a depth role elsewhere if the Panthers don't retain him on the practice squad.

Joins Panthers

Hyman announced via his personal Twitter account Thursday that he's signed a reserve/future contract with the Panthers.

Analysis: Hyman spent most of the 2019 season on the Buccaneers' practice squad. He also appeared in two contests with the team, securing two of four targets for 34 yards. The James Madison product now gets a shot in Carolina.

Rejoins practice squad

The Buccaneers signed Hyman to the practice squad Thursday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Hyman was waived by Tampa Bay on Tuesday, and he now returns to the practice squad. The James Madison product appeared in two contests this season, catching two of four targets for 34 yards.

Let go by Buccaneers

Hyman was waived by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Hyman was active for Tampa Bay the last two weeks, catching two balls on four targets for 34 yards. Jaydon Mickens replaces the James Madison product on the roster.

First pro catch in win

Hyman secured his only target for three yards in the Buccaneers' 38-17 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: The rookie was promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week, and he was able to notch his first pro reception during the contest. Hyman's role could take an exponential leap forward in Week 16 against the Texans, as there appears to be a strong chance the Buccaneers are down Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Scott Miller due to hamstring injuries.

Receives promotion

The Buccaneers promoted Hyman to the active roster Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Hyman has spent over two months on the team's practice squad, and he's in line to make his NFL debut with Mike Evans (hamstring) possibly out for the season. The 24-year-old has a chance to work as the No. 4 wideout if Scott Miller (hamstring) also can't play Sunday against the Lions.

Signs with Bucs' practice squad

Hyman signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of reports.

Analysis: Hyman worked with the Browns through training camp and the preseason before being cut. He had a decent preseason despite struggling with injuries, hauling in 11 of 20 targets for 130 scoreless yards. Hyman likely won't be elevated to the 53-man roster unless there's a slew of injuries.

Leads team in receiving

Hyman caught five of 11 targets for 61 yards during Thursday's preseason game against the Lions.

Analysis: After shaking off a concussion to participate with the team last week against Tampa Bay, Hyman made his presence felt in this one by leading the group in targets, catches and receiving yards. While this performance stands out on the stat sheet, Hyman had hardly had an opportunity to produce previously in the preseason and is vying for a spot within an extraordinarily extensive position group of which 14 different players caught a pass. Still, perhaps his contributions were enough to intrigue the coaching staff.

Warming up against Bucs

Hyman (concussion) participated in pregame warmups prior to Friday's preseason contest against Tampa Bay, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: Hyman sustained the concussion in Saturday's matchup but appears set to see the field Friday against the Buccaneers. It would obviously be in the 24-year-old's best interest to see more game action, as he finds himself on the roster bubble in Cleveland's receiving corps.

Suffers concussion Saturday

Hyman won't return to Saturday's preseason game against the Colts after suffering a concussion, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Hasn't seen any regular season NFL action since going undrafted last offseason and his chances at a depth receiver role in Cleveland are undoubtedly lesser thanks to his injury. He'll figure to miss several days at a minimum as he works his way through the NFL's concussion protocol. Look for Dorian Baker and Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi to see some extra snaps with Hyman out.
