Roberts caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Chargers. Roberts moved the sticks with a 12-yard reception on Carolina's second drive, helping set up a field goal for the game's opening points. Although he made a minimal impact after that, Roberts at least featured on one-third of his team's offensive snaps, a role that should lend itself to occasional catches in upcoming weeks as well.
Roberts caught one of his two targets for five yards in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders. Roberts played just five offensive snaps, so him being targeted on two of those was noteworthy. Nonetheless, with Brandon Zylstra featuring for eight plays, Roberts actually placed fifth among Carolina's wideouts in snaps, a reality that should significantly restrict expectations for him ahead of Week 2's game in Tampa Bay.
Roberts (concussion) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports. Roberts suffered a concussion during training camp, but his current absence from the injury report is an indication that he's fully cleared the league's five-step protocol. He's in line to handle a depth receiver role against the Raiders on Sunday.
Roberts was placed in concussion protocol Saturday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports. Roberts, who joined the Panthers on a one-year deal in the offseason, was expected to provide some quality depth behind the big-name trio of D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel. Even if Roberts were to miss some time, it's unlikely he'll lose spot on the 53-man roster with castoffs such as Keith Kirkwood and Pharoh Cooper behind him on the depth chart.
Roberts (ankle) agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Panthers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Roberts provided a hint of his next destination Tuesday via his personal Twitter account, posting "Joe Brady" and nothing more. He'll now get to work the Panthers new offensive coordinator, joining a young team that's swapping out Cam Newton for Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback. Assuming there are no major complications from his January ankle injury, the 29-year-old Roberts should be in the mix for Carolina's No. 3 receiver job behind D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel. The occupant of that role in 2019, Jarius Wright, is now an unrestricted free agent.
