Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel suffers season-ending ankle injury

Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel suffers season-ending ankle injury”

After rookie wide receiver Curtis Samuel went down with an ankle injury on Monday against the Miami Dolphins, head coach Ron Rivera said on Tuesday that "it didn't look good, " according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, who reported that a source said Samuel will be shut down for the season.

A Dolphins defensive back fell across his left ankle as he was dropping a touchdown pass, and he left on crutches last night. Samuel had to be helped to the locker room.

The second-round pick will undergo season-ending surgery on his left ankle and eventually be placed on injured reserve. With that, Russell Shepard and Damiere Byrd (forearm) should be the beneficiaries of more snaps and targets with Kelvin Benjamin gone and Samuel on the shelf.

Through nine games, Samuel had 15 receptions for 115 yards. Speedy second-year wideout Damiere Byrd (broken forearm) is eligible to come off injured reserve before the December 3 game at New Orleans.

"It's kind of a collective effort", Shula said. There are some guys on our team that would say yes. We're going to try hard to find ways to put guys in place for what they do best and then have them go do it.

"It's probably going to be by committee", Shula added.

"One of the best things that happened after Curtis [went out] was we didn't feel we missed a beat, " Shula said. "It was guys coming in and doing their job and knowing their assignments".
