According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Sam Darnold is thought to have a severe ankle sprain and will be out for four to six weeks

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Darnold has a high ankle sprain. This Saturday, an MRI will be performed to assess the extent of the sprain 

In the third quarter, Darnold needed to be carried off the field

Watching the video of his injury was very scary 

The most recent information on Darnold's condition is positive, even though it initially appeared as though he had sustained a severe ankle injury 

Matt Rhule, the head coach of the Panthers, declined to provide a timeline for Darnold's return 

"As quoted by ESPN, Rhule stated, "We'll have to wait and see. "Sam is a strong child. Usually, he returns quite fast. Nothing is off the table, in my opinion  

This season, Darnold is anticipated to serve as the Panthers' backup quarterback. The starting quarterback will instead be Baker Mayfield   

The Panthers can't really afford to lose another quarterback for an extended length of time, especially because Matt Corral is already out for the season due to a Lisfranc injury
