Sam Darnold was kicked off the field with an injury in the Panthers’ preseason game against the Bills on Friday night.
He appears to have rolled over his left ankle while sustaining a hit from Buffalo’s CJ Brewer. Darnold immediately rolled over in pain.
Josh Allen, who often trains with Darnold in the off-season, came to hug him as he was taken away.
Darnold finished with five completions on 11 attempts for 49 yards before passing out. He also added a speedy touchdown.
Second-year Panther replaced Baker Mayfield in the second quarter. Mayfield, who arrived this off-season after his fall with the Browns, was recently named the starter.
