Getting chance to start in Week 12
Interim coach Steve Wilks announced Tuesday that Darnold will start Sunday's game against the Broncos, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.
With Darnold swapping in for Baker Mayfield, Carolina will be on its third starting quarterback in as many contests. PJ Walker is currently dealing with a high-ankle sprain, the same injury that caused Darnold himself to spend the first 10 weeks of the season on IR, but he'll now get his chance to direct the offense. In 12 appearances (11 starts) for the Panthers during the 2021 campaign, Darnold completed 60 percent of his passes, averaged 210.6 yards per game and tossed nine touchdowns versus 13 interceptions while fumbling nine times, losing four of them.
