Panthers may start Grier in Week 16


The Carolina Panthers seem to have another quarterback controversy in 2019.

Interim coach Perry Fewell has said he will not commit to Kyle Allen as the starting QB for Week 16. The only other quarterback on their roster is rookie Will Grier, a third round pick in the 2019 draft.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news after Fewell’s press conference on Monday.

The Panthers have lost six in a row. In those six losses, Kyle Allen has thrown 11 interceptions to only eight touchdowns. Due to Allen’s struggles, it would make sense for Carolina to see what they have in Grier.

Will Grier, who played for Florida and West Virginia, has yet to play a snap for the Panthers. Since they are out of playoff contention, Grier may be the only chance to give the team a spark.

Cam Newton is done for the season, as he went down with a Lisfranc injury that never healed. He will have surgery on his foot during the offseason. He played in only two games for Carolina in 2019. In those two games, he threw for no touchdowns and one interception.

Fewell has said that he will officially name a starter on Wednesday. The Panthers will play the Colts on Sunday, December 22.
