CHARLOTTE — The Panthers on Tuesday placed running back Reggie Bonnafon on the practice squad/injured list with a high ankle sprain.
Though he has been on the practice squad for the season's first four weeks, Bonnafon was activated to play Carolina's last two games. He saw limited offensive snaps against the Chargers, recording two carries for 16 yards. But he was a larger contributor against Arizona, netting 53 rushing yards on 10 carries, plus two receptions for 18 yards with a touchdown.
Bonnafon must stay on the practice squad/injured list for at least three weeks, the same as if he were placed on the 53-man roster's reserve/injured list in 2020.
Because Bonnafon has been activated from the practice squad for two games, he must be promoted to the 53-man roster in order to play again this year.
With Bonnafon joining Christian McCaffrey as Carolina's sidelined running backs, the club is down to two running backs on the active roster: Mike Davis and Trenton Cannon. Davis has recorded 130 yards rushing, 72 yards receiving, and two total touchdowns in two starts. Cannon was inactive the past two games after playing on special teams the first two weeks.
Carolina also added running back Pete Guerrerio to its practice squad last week. He spent time with the Jets this offseason after finishing his collegiate career as the second-leading rusher in Monmouth history with 3,974 yards.
