Charlotte, N.C. – Monday afternoon the internet was afire about the latest rumor swirling around the Carolina Panthers offense. No, Panthers longtime starting quarterback Cam Newton was not suiting back up, nor were there any bustling rumors about him leaving the organization.
Monday’s Panthers rumors were all swirling about a bearded quarterback loved by the 1.8 million living in West Virginia. Per Ian Rapoport, rookie quarterback Will Grier is expected to start for the Panthers in Sunday’s game.
The Panthers have not had the season they had wanted, or expected, this fall with Newton’s injury sidelining him and replacement quarterback Kyle Allen leading the offense and losing six of the team’s most recent games.
An official announcement from the coaching staff is expected to be announced as soon as Wednesday afternoon. The Panthers have two games remaining on their 2019 season, this coming Sunday versus the Colts and the December 29 season finale against the Saints.
