Panthers activate defensive end Darryl Johnson

Darryl Johnson

CHARLOTTE — The Panthers got back to a full roster for the moment, and added some depth back to their defense and special teams.

The Panthers activated defensive end Darryl Johnson to the 53-man roster.

He had been designated to return from injured reserve, after a hamstring injury landed him on IR initially. He's played in two games this season.

Johnson, acquired in a preseason trade with the Bills, could provide some size on special teams (since outside linebacker Frankie Luvu is on the reserve/COVID-19 list at the moment).

The Panthers also made a change on the practice squad, adding running back Jacque Patrick, and releasing wide receiver Matt Cole.

Patrick played at Florida State and has spent time with the Bengals and 49ers.
