Byrd (concussion) was placed on the Panthers' injured reserve list on Tuesday. Byrd suffered a head injury during Carolina's second game of the preseason. He enjoyed a solid training camp up until that point, though, and will likely take aim at cracking the Panthers' roster once again in 2017.
Byrd (concussion) was released by the Panthers on Tuesday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. Byrd suffered a head injury during the Panthers' second preseason game against the Titans, and likely played a role in the team's decision to cut him. Kelvin Benjamin, Ted Ginn, and Devin Funchess figure to be the main trio at receiver throughout the season.
Byrd left Saturday's matchup with the Titans to be evaluated for a concussion, Max Henson of Carolinahuddle.com reports. The severity of the injury is currently unknown, but don't expect Byrd to resume football related activities until he passes concussion protocol. Byrd projects as the ninth receiver on the Panthers depth chart, so he is competing for a spot on the final roster.
The Dolphins announced the re-signing of wide receiver LaRon Byrd on Wednesday. Byrd spent five weeks with the Dolphins in 2014 before he was placed on injured reserve with a practice squad designation. He has one career catch in four seasons.
The Dolphins plan to re-sign wideout LaRon Byrd this week, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Byrd spent the 2014 season with Miami, but did not play. His lone NFL catch was snagged in 2012 with Arizona.
