Charlotte-Curtis Samuel will not be able to play Carolina reunited.
The Washington wide receiver was excluded from Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, when the team’s inactive players were released 90 minutes before the kick-off. Samuel, who played for the Panthers from 2017 to 2020, will miss his fifth consecutive game and the eighth game of the season.
Since late May, Samuel has been dealing with a groin injury, limiting him to two games and 30 steals. In the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5, he again aggravated the injury, even though the coaches said that Samuel exceeded the number of steals he recommended in the previous week-which led to Samuel’s recent injury problem.
When Samuel returned to training on Friday, Washington listed Samuel as having a problem with Sunday’s game. If the wide receiver signs a three-year, $34.5 million contract in March, if progress continues, Samuel may participate in the team’s next game: November 29 against the Seattle Sea The Eagles’ “Monday Night Football” matchup.
Here are the others who traveled to Washington in Charlotte:
-Wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden
-Cornerback Corn Elder
-Solve Saahdiq Charles
-Shaka Toney on the defensive end (concussion)
-Tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (hip)
