Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold returned to the field on Sunday. He was activated off of the injured reserve on Saturday.
The action against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was his first action since Week 9 against the New England Patriots. He had been sidelined with a torn scapula injury.
He was expected to be sidelined for four-to-six weeks with the shoulder fracture injury. However, his injury took some more time to heal.
So far in the game, he has gone 4-of-6 for 75 yards before being replaced by Cam Newton. The Panthers signed the former franchise signal-caller to a one-year deal with Darnold went down with his injury.
Darnold’s first pass back from injury went for 63-yards.
Head coach Matt Rhule said that Darnold would be used sparingly in the game. There was also a report on Sunday that suggested that Darnold may start for the team in the final two games of the season.
As a starter before his injury, Darnold has gone 120 of 183 for 1,366 yards. He had thrown six touchdown passes and six interceptions.Follow Us on Social Media:
