Panthers coach Matt Rhule told reporters that quarterback Sam Darnold can have an MRI on his shoulder on Monday. If Darnold cannot play, backup P.J. Walker will get the beginning.
Darnold is coming off one among his worst performances this season in a 24–6 loss to the Patriots the place he threw three interceptions. The principle storyline from the drubbing was huge receiver Robby Anderson could possibly be seen shouting at Darnold on the sidelines after his third turnover of the day.
Darnold has appeared in 9 video games and thrown simply seven touchdowns to 11 interceptions. He has 1,986 passing yards on the season. Carolina has struggled since its 3–0 begin. The Panthers at the moment sit on the backside of the NFC South at 4–5.
Walker has solely appeared in three NFL video games — all from final 12 months. He has accomplished 32 of 56 passes and thrown one landing to his 5 interceptions. If he had been to begin for Carolina this Sunday towards Arizona, it might be the second begin of his younger profession.
Kickoff at State Farm Stadium is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday.
