Curtis Samuel to undergo season-ending surgery

Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel is out for the rest of his rookie season after suffering an injury to ligaments in his ankle

Samuel was on crutches in the locker room, with his left leg heavily wrapped.

He is scheduled to have surgery on the injured ankle and eventually be placed on injured reserve. But when wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was traded to the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago, Samuel assumed a starting role alongside Devin Funchess.

Ron Rivera, Mike Shula and the rest of the offensive coaching staff will now evaluate the roster and come up with a plan on how to replace the injured Samuel.

The Panthers' 2017 second round draft pick tallied a career-high five catches for 45 yards in the first quarter prior to the injury. Samuel, a product of Ohio State, played running back for the Buckeyes before shifting to wide receiver in the NFL. Is there anybody as fast as him?

The Panthers have only four other receivers on their active roster - Devin Funchess, Russell Shepard, Kaelin Clay and Brenton Bersin - but Damiere Boyd is eligible to come off injured reserve for the team's game against the Saints on December 3.

Samuel was a big part of Carolina's plan coming into the season as the slot receiver because of his speed and playmaking ability.

Monday night was a costly win for the Panthers. 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.
