Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Samuel (chest) won't play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Samuel never had much chance to play in the opener after he recently required a procedure to address an irregular heartbeat. He's only expected to serve as Carolina's fourth or fifth option at wide receiver this season, but Samuel's absence could free up a few extra snaps for D.J. Moore and Damiere Byrd in Week 1.
