Damiere Byrd injury update: Panthers WR suffers broken arm, placed on IR

Damiere Byrd injury update: Panthers WR reportedly suffers broken arm

Damiere Byrd appears to be done for the year.

The Panthers receiver and punt returner broke his arm in the team’s 30-27 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday and has been placed on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

This is the third time Byrd has ended up on injured reserve over the past two seasons. He also broke his arm last season, although it’s unclear if he broke the same arm again.

While Byrd only had one catch for 8 yards on the season, he was used primarily on special teams as a punt returner with 11 punt returns for 104 yards.

It’s another blow for Carolina, which also lost Donte Jackson in the game to an injury.
