Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday, so the ankle is a real concern. So is QB play in rookie Will Grier’s 1st start. Samuel isn’t a recommended Week 16 fantasy play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is expected to play today against the Colts. Samuel is officially questionable with a knee injury that arose during the practice week. It limited his Thursday participation and then kept him out Friday. Combine that with Carolina giving rookie QB Will Grier his 1st pro start in this road game, and Samuel looks like a guy you should try to avoid for fantasy football lineups.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Colts. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday, so he seems to be in real danger of missing this one. Samuel wasn’t a recommended fantasy play in QB Will Grier’s 1st start anyways. His absence would leave behind a handful of targets for guys like RB Christian McCaffrey, WR D.J. Moore and TE Greg Olsen.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 10 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Samuel remains a boom/bust WR3 for Sunday’s game in Green Bay.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel missed Wednesday's practice and is listed on the injury report with a hamstring. He only practiced on Thursday last week before playing his usual role against the Titans -- but this hamstring issue is new. We'll get another update on Samuel tomorrow.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel missed Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury. He played his usual snap count in last weekend's loss to the 49ers, so we're tentatively expecting Samuel to play against the Titans on Sunday. But check back tomorrow for another update.

Panthers HC Ron Rivera said WR Curtis Samuel's jump from year 2 to 3 "has been amazing." Samuel struggled with injuries for the first year-and-a-half of his NFL career. But over the final 6 weeks of last season, he tallied 22 catches, 315 yards and 2 scores, adding another 41 yards on 4 carries. Samuel ranked 31st among WRs in PPR points during that span. The former 2nd-rounder is capable of finishing at least that high in 2019.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, and it's possible this was more of a rest day. Check back tomorrow for an update on Samuel's status.

Panthers HC Ron Rivera conceded on Tuesday that there's no timetable for WR Curtis Samuel's return to football activities. He's still rehabbing from a significant November ankle injury that required surgery. Samuel is running "a little bit," according to Rivera, but isn't doing any cutting. There's been nothing to suggest that he won't be ready for the start of the season, but any missed practice time is bad news for a guy who didn't do much as a rookie. Samuel isn't worth a look until the final few rounds of early best-ball drafts.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel will miss the rest of the season with his ankle injury, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. It's a tough break for a guy who was in for a significant role down the stretch. Luckily for Carolina, TE Greg Olsen is expected to be ready after the Week 11 bye. They now have only Russell Shepard, Kaelin Clay and Brenton Bersin behind Devin Funchess on the WR depth chart.

Update: Samuel will undergo surgery on his injured left ankle, the team announced.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (back) isn’t listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He’ll play against the Lions on Sunday after missing last week’s game. The rookie has just 43 total yards through appearances and isn’t a fantasy option.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (back) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. We don’t have any details on the injury — but Samuel has struggled staying healthy early in his pro career. His absence leaves Russell Shepard as Carolina’s #3 WR.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess is having an "excellent camp," writes the Charlotte Observer's Jordan Rodrigue. WR Curtis Samuel, meanwhile, continues to be sidelined by a hamstring injury. Funchess is locked into a starting spot on the outside opposite Kelvin Benjamin. He's been inefficient through 2 NFL seasons but is a former 2nd-round pick who's still just 23 years old. Funchess is worth a look at his dirt-cheap price tag.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is dealing with a hamstring strain, according to Bill Voth of the team's official site. Samuel reportedly felt "tightness" in the hammy on Thursday and has been sent back to Charlotte to be evaluated. There's no timetable for his return to the field. The rookie was already a long shot for reliable fantasy production this season -- and the missed practice time obviously won't help his cause.
