  • Omar Bayless: Released from practice squad

    The Panthers have released Bayless from their practice squad Monday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Bayless appeared to have a chance to make the Panthers' 53-man roster last season before a knee injury landed him on IR. He failed to make the initial roster again this year, but he landed on Carolina's practice squad after clearing waivers. His release is presumably to make room for Corn Elder.

  • Omar Bayless: Designated for waivers

    Bayless (knee) was waived by the Panthers on Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Bayless looked like he had a chance to make the 53-man roster last season before knee surgery landed him on injured reserve. The 24-year-old posted 93 receptions for 1,653 yards and 17 touchdowns across 13 games for Arkansas State in 2019. He'll continue to fine-tune his craft on the practice squad if he clears waivers.

  • Panthers' Omar Bayless: Placed on IR

    The Panthers placed Bayless (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

    Bayless underwent knee surgery Tuesday, a procedure that carried an expected recovery timetable of roughly two weeks. Though the undrafted rookie appeared to have a shot at getting healthy for Week 1, the Panthers have opted to shut him down. The Arkansas State product will turn his attention to 2021.

  • Panthers' Omar Bayless: Undergoes knee procedure

    Bayless underwent knee surgery Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Bayless has no structural damage to his knee, and his procedure reportedly only took roughly 15 minutes. With an expected recovery timetable of about two weeks, Bayless has a fair shot at being ready for Week 1. However, his chances of garnering more than a depth role in Carolina's receiver corps look slim.

  • Panthers' Omar Bayless: Will need knee surgery

    Bayless (knee) will require surgery, per coach Matt Rhule, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

    According to Rhule, the team won't know the severity of the injury until the surgery, so the timetable for Bayless' return could be on the scale of weeks or months. With a deep receiving corps ahead of him, this injury further lowers Bayless' slim chances of making an impact in 2020.

  • Panthers' Omar Bayless: Misses third straight practice

    Bayless (knee) didn't practice Friday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Bayless sat out Tuesday due to knee swelling, and that seemed quite mild at the time. However, the undrafted rookie has now missed three straight practices, so Bayless's injury could be more serious than originally thought. That's tough news for the 23-year-old wideout, as he was turning heads in training camp and head coach Matt Rhule said Bayless "can help us this year." His injury status is worth keeping an eye on.

  • Panthers' Omar Bayless: Battling knee issue

    Head coach Matt Rhule said Bayless' knee swelled up Monday night, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Rhule gave an injury update on Bayless and simultaneously praised the undrafted rookie wide receiver, saying Bayless "can help us this year." That's quite the endorsement, although it's not entirely surprising because Bayless racked up 93 receptions for 1,653 yards and 17 touchdowns in his senior season at Arkansas State. The 23-year-old will look to recover quickly to stay on track for a spot on the 53-man roster.
