Panthers to start Sam Darnold vs. Broncos in Week 12

As announced by the Carolina Panthers late Tuesday afternoon, Sam Darnold will be the starting quarterback for the team’s Week 12 tilt against the Denver Broncos, Anthony Rizzuti of USA Today's Panthers Wire reports. This will mark Darnold’s first action of the 2022 campaign.

The fifth-year passer began the season on injured reserve, after sustaining a high-ankle sprain in the preseason finale on Aug. 26. Following a nine-week absence, he was activated to the 53-man roster on Nov. 7—prior to the Week 10 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

Darnold will take the reins over from Baker Mayfield—who turned in yet another underwhelming performance this past Sunday. Mayfield completed 21 of his 33 passing attempts for 196 yards and two interceptions in a 13-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens—moving the Panthers to a 1-5 mark in his six starts.
