Reggie Bonnafon: Back with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (undisclosed) was signed to the Panthers' practice squad Tuesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Bonnafon was let go by the Panthers at the end of training camp after picking up an injury, but he'll now rejoin the team via the practice squad. The 25-year-old had 12 carries for 69 yards, two catches for 18 yards and a touchdown in two games last season, and he'll provide depth at tailback with Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) still sidelined for the near future.

Reggie Bonnafon: Let go off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (undisclosed) was waived off injured reserve with an injury settlement Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Bonnafon was waived with the injury designation Tuesday and reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers, but he'll quickly move on to free agency. He appeared in only two games last year before being sidelined by an ankle injury.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve Wednesday, per the NFL's official transactions report.

Bonnafon went unclaimed on waivers after being cut by Carolina on Tuesday. As a result, he will remain on IR for the entire 2021 campaign, unless he can reach an injury settlement.

Reggie Bonnafon: Waived with injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (undisclosed) was waived with an injury designation Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

Bonnafon will revert to Carolina's injured reserve list if he goes unclaimed on waivers. In that event, he will be out for the 2021 season unless he reaches an injury settlement. The nature of the journeyman running back's injury remains undisclosed.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Not expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (undisclosed) isn't expected to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Steelers, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

The same applies to Carolina's top back Christian McCaffrey as well as Rodney Smith (undisclosed) and Trenton Cannon. As a result, Chuba Hubbard, Spencer Brown and Darius Clark are candidates to see added rushing opportunities Friday.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Misses preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (undisclosed) didn't dress for Sunday's preseason opener against the Colts, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bonnafon and fellow running back Rodney Smith, who are both in the mix for a backup role in Carolina's backfield, sat this one out with undisclosed injuries. The pecking order behind Christian McCaffrey is far from set in stone heading into Week 2 of preseason against the Ravens.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Jockeying with rookie for role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon is competing with rookie Chuba Hubbard for the Panthers' No. 2 running back job, Joseph Person of The Athletic reports.

Bonnafon played just two games last season but has been productive in his limited involvement since joining Carolina as an undrafted free agent in 2018. With Hubbard arriving this offseason as a fourth-round pick, however, Bonnafon faces significant competition to serve as superstar Christian McCaffrey's understudy. As a result, it'll be interesting to monitor how both Bonnafon and Hubbard fare during the preseason slate.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Returns this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon returns this season after missing all but two games in 2020 due to an ankle injury, Tim Weaver of USA Today reports.

Bonnafon has been efficient in his very limited work for the Panthers, averaging 6.6 yards and scoring once on his 28 carries in 18 games over the past two seasons. Heading into 2021, he's expected to compete primarily with rookie fourth-rounder Chuba Hubbard and Rodney Smith for pegging on the depth chart behind superstar Christian McCaffrey, who also returns from hardly playing last year. Given that cohort of backs, Bonnafon will need to impress during training camp and the preseason to secure his spot ahead of the regular season.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Could compete for No. 2 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (ankle) should get the opportunity to compete for the backup role behind Christian McCaffrey during the Panthers' offseason program and training camp, Rushil Vashee of USA Today reports.

As Carolina's roster stands ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft, Bonnafon appears set to compete with Rodney Smith and Trenton Cannon for the top backup gig. An ankle injury limited Bonnafon to just two appearances last season, but with a full offseason to get healthy and continue his development, the 25-year-old could earn a more notable role in Year 3. Of course, the Panthers may still add another rookie back to challenge for the top understudy role behind McCaffrey.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Won't return in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (ankle) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Friday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Bonnafon was signed to the active roster Wednesday despite an existing ankle injury, and it appears further tests have revealed a serious issue. The 24-year-old running back won't return this season, and he'll look to make a full recovery for the 2021 campaign. With Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) currently out for Week 10, Mike Davis, Curtis Samuel and Trenton Cannon will handle the backfield reps Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Won't play against Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

With Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) also ruled out, Mike Davis will assume the starting running back role with Trenton Cannon backing him up. Alex Armah and practice squad player Rodney Smith are also options at the position, while Bonnafon will set his sights on a Week 11 return against the Lions.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday.

The second-year back was promoted to the active roster Wednesday but is still nursing an ankle sprain he suffered a few weeks back. With Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) not participating in practice Wednesday, the Panthers are down to two fully healthy backs. Should he be cleared, Bonnafon could see some game snaps for the first time since Week 4.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Promoted by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers signed Bonnafon (ankle) to the active roster Wednesday, Will Bryan of the team's official site reports.

Bonnafon missed a few weeks of practice due to an ankle injury, but he's back to full health just as opportunity knocks. Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) is expected to miss this Sunday's game against the Buccaneers and is labeled week-to-week, so Bonnafon will add depth in the backfield. Mike Davis will handle the lead role while wide receiver Curtis Samuel rotates in, but Bonnafon should get some tread. The 24-year-old has shown impressive bursts this year, albeit in a small sample, with 12 carries for 69 yards and two receptions for 18 yards and a score.

Reggie Bonnafon: Returning to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers restored Bonnafon (ankle) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Bonnafon has missed nearly a month due to a high ankle sprain, and he could have a role soon if he's truly healthy. Christian McCaffrey left late in Week 9 with a shoulder injury and may miss time, so Bonnafon is a depth option for Carolina's backfield behind Mike Davis and Curtis Samuel.

Reggie Bonnafon: Dealing with high ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon, who is on the practice squad injured list, is tending to a high ankle sprain, Jonathan M. Alexander and Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

In the wake of Christian McCaffrey suffering a high ankle sprain Week 2, Bonnafon was elevated from the practice for both of the Panthers' past two games. In Week 4 in particular, Bonnafon produced in a reserve role behind Mike Davis, totaling 10 carries for 53 yards and two catches (on two targets) for 18 yards and one touchdown. That said, he may have lost his chance to contribute much, as he's likely well behind McCaffrey in his recovery from a similar injury. With a multi-week absence on tap, Bonnafon will yield secondary RB reps to Trenton Cannon and Curtis Samuel in the short term.

Reggie Bonnafon: Goes to practice squad injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers placed Bonnafon (ankle) on the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Bonnafon took full advantage of his 21 offensive snaps this past Sunday against the Cardinals, compiling 10 carries for 53 yards and two catches (on two targets) for 18 yards and one TD. He was unable to escape unscathed, though, as he sustained a high-ankle sprain. Now that he's on the practice squad injured list, Bonnafon must remain there for at least three weeks before the Panthers can consider adding him to the active roster again. As long as Christian McCaffrey (ankle) is sidelined, Carolina will lean on Mike Davis and, to a lesser extent, Trenton Cannon out of the backfield.

Reggie Bonnafon: Back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon reverted back to Carolina's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Bonnafon caught a touchdown in the team's Week 4 win over Arizona, but that wasn't enough to keep him on the active roster. This was the second time Bonnafon was reverted back to the practice squad, meaning if he is called up again he will have to remain on the active roster or the team will risk losing him.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Scores in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon rushed 10 times for 53 yards and caught both of his targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

Bonnafon set a new career high in touches while playing just over a quarter of Carolina's offensive snaps. In his extended work, the second-year back produced some big gains, including a 22-yard rush and 15-yard reception. Of course, Bonnafon's touchdown also came through the air, as he strolled free for a three-yard grab off play action to end the second quarter. Based on his strong performance, Bonnafon may expect similar usage behind Mike Davis in Week 5 versus the Falcons, but after Davis topped 20 touches again Sunday, it's clear he's the Panthers' top option while Christian McCaffrey (ankle) remains sidelined.

Panthers' Reggie Bonnafon: Elevates from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers elevated Bonnafon to the active roster Saturday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bonnafon suited up in Week 3's win over the Chargers as Mike Davis' backup, but he logged just two offensive snaps and rushed twice for 16 yards. The Panthers' game plan seems to be to provide Davis a Christian McCaffrey workload, so Bonnafon's fantasy value is negligible for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

September 29, 2020 07:08 PM
Reggie Bonnafon: Reverts to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonnafon reverted back to Carolina's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Bonnafon heads back to the practice squad after recording two carries and adding a tackle on a punt return while playing a total of two snaps on offense and nine on special teams in Sunday's win over the Chargers. There's a chance the Panthers use their second available call-up on the running back soon with Christian McCaffrey (ankle) projected to sit out a few more games.
