Sam Darnold to play, other key first-team players not expected to see action vs. Ravens

Sam Darnold

CHARLOTTE — The Panthers are going to sit a few key players, but most of the starters are going to get some work in tonight's preseason game.

The Panthers are going to hold running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver DJ Moore out tonight against the Ravens.

But after starters on both sides of the ball sat out of last week's opener against the Colts, quarterback Sam Darnold is going to get some work.

Right guard John Miller's also out tonight, among the starting offense. Reserves Rodney Smith, Reggie Bonnafon, and Keith Kirkwood won't play.

Quarterback Will Grier is expected to be second in line to play tonight, ahead of P.J. Walker.

Among the defensive reserves, Marquis Haynes Sr., A.J. Bouye, Denzel Perryman, Kendall Donnerson, and Caraun Reid are being held out.
