Sam Darnold's status is officially decided by the Carolina Panthers.
This Thursday morning, the Carolina Panthers will make a formal choice about seasoned quarterback Sam Darnold.
The former USC standout has been placed on injured reserve by the NFC South team, as was predicted.
Throughout training camp, Sam Darnold had been competing for the Panthers' starting quarterback job.
Matt Rhule, though, is continuing to work with Baker Mayfield. Mayfield was acquired by the Panthers in an offseason deal from the Cleveland Browns.
