Omar Bayless: Placed on IR

The Panthers placed Bayless (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Bayless underwent knee surgery Tuesday, a procedure which carried an expected recovery timetable of roughly two weeks. Though the undrafted rookie appeared to have a shot at getting healthy for Week 1, the Panthers have opted to shut him down. The Arkansas State product will turn his attention to 2021.

Omar Bayless: Undergoes knee procedure

Bayless underwent knee surgery Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Analysis: Bayless has no structural damage to his knee, and his procedure reportedly only took roughly 15 minutes. With an expected recovery timetable of about two weeks, Bayless has a fair shot at being ready for Week 1. However, his chances of garnering more than a depth role in Carolina's receiver corps look slim.
