  • Panthers' Matt Corral: Undergoes foot surgery

    Corral recently underwent successful surgery on his left foot and returned to Carolina's team facility Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Corral is still likely to miss the entire 2022 campaign after being placed on injured reserve, but it's an encouraging sign to see him in good spirits following Lisfranc surgery. The rookie third-round pick faces a lengthly rehab but is expected to be healthy by next year's training camp. With Sam Darnold (ankle) and Baker Mayfield both set for free agency this offseason, it's possible Corral gets a chance to compete for the starting quarterback role in 2023, though Carolina will likely bring in competition via the daft or free agency.

  • Panthers' Matt Corral: Ruled out for season

    Corral (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, ruling him out for the 2022 season, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Players placed on IR before the end of the preseason aren't eligible to return. Corral struggled in two exhibition appearances before suffering a Lisfranc injury, and he likely would've been a gameday inactive to start his career if he'd stayed healthy. The rookie third-round pick faces a lengthy rehab after Lisfranc surgery, but the Panthers won't need to rush him back and presumably will have other options at quarterback next year, be it Baker Mayfield, a rookie or a new veteran. The 23-year-old Corral gets a redshirt year and can only hope for a shot to compete for the top spot next offseason.

  • Panthers' Matt Corral: Could need surgery

    Corral is getting a second opinion on his Lisfranc injury, before the decision on whether or not he'll need surgery will be made Tuesday, according to head coach Matt Rhule, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Corral suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the Panthers' preseason loss to the Patriots on Friday. The rookie third-round selection has struggled so far but was expected to be the team's No. 3 option behind Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold. However, Corral may end up spending his rookie season on IR, clearing the way for P.J. Walker to earn a roster spot.

  • Panthers' Matt Corral: Diagnosed with Lisfranc injury

    Corral has a Lisfranc injury in his left foot, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    Newton suggests it could be a season-ending injury after coach Matt Rhule used the term "significant." Corral, a rookie third-round pick, was expected to be the Panthers' No. 3 QB before he hurt his foot during Friday's preseason loss to New England. He struggled in his two appearances this preseason, completing 10 of 24 passes for 69 yards. P.J. Walker now has a much better shot to stick with the Panthers behind Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold.

  • Panthers' Matt Corral: Sustains foot injury Friday

    Corral suffered a foot injury during Friday's preseason loss in New England, Schuyler Callihan of SI.com reports.

    With Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold sitting out the Panthers' second exhibition, P.J. Walker and Corral split the workload at quarterback. Walker handled the first and third quarters, while Corral got the second and was expected to take the fourth before limping off the field and getting ruled out in the waning minutes of the contest. Overall, Corral completed nine of 15 passes for 58 yards and recorded three carries for six yards before his departure. The severity of his injury is unknown, but it could impact his ability to be available for the team's third preseason outing next Friday against the Bills.

  • Panthers' Matt Corral: Hurts left foot Friday

    Coach Matt Rhule said Corral's foot was stepped on during the fourth quarter of Friday's preseason defeat at New England, forcing the quarterback to get X-rays afterward, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Corral directed Carolina's offense in the second quarter and was expected to do the same for the entire fourth quarter, but he came off the field limping in the waning minutes of the contest and didn't return. P.J. Walker, the only other QB available with Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold out, logged the first and third quarters and closed out the game for an injured Corral. Afterward, Corral was spotted leaving the locker room with a walking boot on his left foot, per Gantt, but the severity of the rookie third-round pick's injury remains unknown.

  • Panthers' Matt Corral: In line for more snaps

    Corral will play alternating quarters with P.J. Walker during Carolina's preseason game at New England on Friday, Darin Gantt of Panthers.com reports.

    It's an unconventional arrangement that's been cooked up by coaches Matt Rhule and Ben McAdoo, but it's one that works in Corral's favor. The rookie out of Mississippi didn't see any snaps until the fourth quarter of the Panthers' preseason opener at Washington, so this qualifies as a temporary promotion for him. He seems to be considered an important piece of Carolina's plans moving into the future, but his place on the depth chart this season could largely depend on how he and Walker perform during the preseason.

  • Panthers' Matt Corral: Last QB to play

    Corral completed one of nine passes for 11 yards in Saturday's 23-21 preseason win over the Commanders.

    Corral surprisingly entered the game after P.J. Walker, making him the fourth and final quarterback used by the Panthers. As a third-round pick, Corral is expected to use his rookie season to develop behind Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold, who are competing for the team's starting job. However, with Walker nabbing significant playing time Saturday, Corral was only left with the scraps, not taking his first snap until the fourth quarter. A potential Darnold trade could open the door for Walker to make Carolina's roster, perhaps explaining his usage, but it nonetheless will be interesting to track how and when Corral is deployed in the remaining couple preseason tilts.
