Carolina Panthers: Options to replace WR Curtis Samuels

Carolina Panthers: Options to replace WR Curtis Samuels

Samuel had a chance to catch a Cam Newton pass in the end zone early in the third quarter Monday night, and Dolphins safety Reshad Jones rolled over Samuel's ankle as he was diving for the interception.

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

Through nine games, Samuel had 15 receptions for 115 yards.

Monday night was a costly win for the Panthers.

Head coach Ron Rivera said things weren't very optimistic about Samuel's ankle before an MRI Tuesday afternoon.

The good news for Carolina is Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen (broken foot) is set to come off injured reserve after this week's bye.

"It's kind of a collective effort", Shula said. 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.

Now, with Samuel out for the season, the Panthers have to turn to others to inject that much-needed speed.
