We are 10 days away from the beginning of the Carolina Panthers 2018 season. That means today we take a closer look at wide receiver Curtis Samuel.Curtis Samuel Youth Mike Adams Jersey , Wide receiverBioHeight: 5’11”Weight: 195 lbsAge: 22College: Ohio StateNFL Experience: 2 yearsHere’s a brief summary of his career, courtesy of the Panthers’ team website:After an arduous recovery from ankle surgery, Samuel is back with a vengeance in 2018 and is ready to show everyone the reason he was drafted in the second round. So far this preseason he has done just that, and has made a strong case that he should be the No. 2 wide receiver on the depth chart. His versatility and ability to make defenders miss will allow the Panthers to create mismatches on the field and take advantage of them. It’s up in the air as to whether or not the coaches will give Samuel the No. 2 spot over veteran Torrey Smith Cheap Trai Turner Jersey , but if they choose not to it certainly won’t be because Samuel didn’t earn it. Regardless of where he ends up on the depth chart, the Panthers should find plenty of opportunities to get him the football, and I’m excited to see what he can do with those chances whenever they occur.For your viewing pleasure, Samuel shared a highlight reel on his Instagram:Matt Kalil placed on injured reserve The Carolina Panthers have placed left tackle Matt Kalil on injured reserve. He had a lingering injury to his right knee during training camp. The team had to wait until this afternoon to place him on IR so that he would be eligible to return to the team if his knee does recover. Players placed on the list prior to final roster cuts Cheap Donte Jackson Jersey , like right tackle Jeremiah Sirles, cannot be returned to the active roster for the duration of the season. Kalil will be eligible to return after missing eight games. For the Panthers, that means their Thursday night match up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.The Panthers have signed cornerback Lorenzo Doss — who miraculously cleared waivers today after being released yesterday — to fill the empty roster spot. Doss is a 4th year veteran in the NFL, however Da'Norris Searcy Jersey , at 5’11” and 185 pounds, he lacks the ideal size to play any offensive line position. He will likely remain in the defensive backfield. Instead, the Panthers will look to some combination of Taylor Moton and Amini Silatolu, who is also coming back from a knee injury Michael Palardy Jersey , to fill in on Cam Newton’s blindside. The good news today is that right tackle Daryl Williams and Silatolu are on track to be back on the field earlier than anticipated. With any luck, this news may just be one step back and two steps forward for the battered Panthers offensive line group.
