Panthers WR Curtis Samuel to undergo season-ending surgery

In 9 games, Samuel made 15 catches for 115 yards and took 4 carries for 64 yards, though he did not find the end zone in the 2017 season.

He is scheduled to have surgery on the injured ankle and eventually be placed on injured reserve.

Coach Ron Rivera said earlier Tuesday there was concern that Samuel's injury would be season-ending, but he was awaiting MRI results. He had only 10 catches for 70 yards before Monday night. Is there anybody as fast as him?

Panthers second-year wide receiver Damiere Byrd is eligible to return from injured reserve in Week 13 versus the New Orleans Saints. He should be ready for the November 26 game against the New York Jets. He was injured in the third quarter of Monday's game after dropping what would've been a touchdown.

This is going to be a big loss for the Panthers offense as they hoped Samuel could bring an element of speed that had been missing from this group for most of the season. Samuel, a second-round pick from Ohio State, had seen his role increase in the wake of the Benjamin trade. "That's another thing we would look at".
