On Wednesday, US time, Panthers coach Matt Rhule said that quarterback Sam Darnold will replace Cam Newton in the starting lineup.
Danold suffered a shoulder injury in the ninth week of the game and was later added to the injury reserve list. Newton led the team to defeat in the last five games.
Lu said: “Sam has made a lot of effort to get back to his state. I think he also showed some good parts last week…. We will also give him the opportunity to show his ability later.”
Darnold and Newton played in the 32-6 loss to the Buccaneers. He completed 15 of 32 passes and advanced 190 yards. The Panthers have been determined to miss the playoffs, and Darnold is the only quarterback with a contract next season. Lu therefore wanted to give him a better evaluation.
“I hope he can play the performance of the first game: pass the ball in time and have a strong desire to attack.” Lu said, “I hope he plays more aggressively, cooperates with the system, and attacks aggressively.”
On Tuesday, US time, the pirates officially announced that coach Bruce Arians (Bruce Arians) tested positive for the new crown and is currently in quarantine at home.
Arians told ESPN reporters that he is currently in no serious condition, with only mild symptoms, mainly coughing. Assistant coach and rushing coordinator Harold Goodwin (Harold Goodwin) will temporarily act as the coach.
Arians wrote in the statement: “I have full confidence in Goodwin and the coaching staff. They will help the team prepare for the game against the Jets. I look forward to completing the test as soon as possible, re-entering the training facility and returning to the team.”
The 69-year-old Arians suffered several health problems in his career, including prostate cancer in 2007, skin cancer and renal cell carcinoma in 2013, the latter forcing him to undergo surgery to remove part of his kidney.
Goodwin has been Arians’ right-hand man since 2007, having passed the Steelers (offensive striker coach and quality management coordinator), Colts (offensive striker coach) and Cardinals (offensive coordinator).
After the 26-21 loss to the Jets on Sunday, US time, Jaguar coach Darren Bevell stated that running back James Robinson suffered a torn Achilles tendon.
Robinson was injured without contact and was then helped to leave the field. The medical vehicle drove him back to the locker room. Robinson injured his knee and heel in November and missed a game because of this.
Only Dare Ogunbowale and Nathan Cottrell are left on the Jaguar roster. Previously signed running back Ryquell Armstead (Ryquell Armstead) has not been activated.
Ogombovale rushed the ball 17 times, advanced 57 yards, and had one touchdown in this game.
Robinson rushed for 767 yards this season and is the number one running back in the Jaguars. Robinson pushed the ball for 1,070 yards last season, with a total of 1,414 yards. It is the best result of losing the draft since the start of the open draft.
On Thursday, U.S. time, Rams running back Cam Akers returned to team training, declaring that his Achilles tendon tear was basically fully recovered.
The Rams opened the 21-day return window for Aix on Thursday. Axe was the Rams’ number one running back last season, but was injured in a private training session in July this year. Originally, Aix expected to miss the entire season, but his recovery process was faster than expected, which was able to return at the end of the season. The remaining three opponents of the Rams are the Vikings, the Ravens and the 49ers.
Although it was only in the second half of the game that he started to get a steady chance to play, Aix still contributed 625 rushing yards for the 2020 season. The Rams’ number one running back this season is Darrell Henderson, who rushed for 671 yards and 5 touchdowns. Sony Michel also contributed 597 rushing yards, of which 292 yards came from the past three games.
In addition, defensive guard Juju Hughes, Antoine Brooks and Jake Gervase will also return from the new crown reserve list.
US time on Tuesday, according to ESPN reporters, the Pirates running back Leonard Fournette (Leonard Fournette) is likely to be added to the injury reserve list and will be absent from the rest of the regular season.
Fournett is expected to return during the playoffs. To fill the vacancy, the Buccaneers will sign with veteran running back Le’Veon Bell and let him serve as a substitute for Ronald Jones.
Bell is 29 years old and was selected to the best team at his peak. Recently, Bell played for the Ravens, played 5 games, rushed 31 times, advanced 83 yards, and 2 touchdowns.
As third-speed running back Giovani Bernard (Giovani Bernard) was also added to the injury reserve list after knee and hip injuries, the Pirates only left Jones and second-year running back Kisho in the game against the Saints. Ke’Shawn Vaughn is available. Jones is not good at catching the ball, and Vaughan has limited experience.
In the absence of Fournett, the Pirates finally let Jones rush the ball 8 times for 63 yards, and Vaughan rushed the ball 3 times for 19 yards.
