Sam Darnold Injury Update

Carolina has signed a QB to the practice squad to boost their depth

Josh Love NFL

The Panthers have added Josh Love to their practice squad in the wake of Darnold's injury.

Love played for San Jose State from 2016-2019, recording 3,923 yards and 22 TDs as a senior before going undrafted. He hasn't appeared in an NFL game yet, though he's spent some time in camp with the Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns before being picked up.

Love joins James Morgan as QBs on the Panthers' practice squad. Either signal-caller could be elevated as P.J. Walker's backup in Week 9 against the New England Patriots if Darnold is a no-go.
