Samuel was hurt when hurt when a defender rolled over his left ankle after an incompletion in the end zone early in the third quarter. Samuel was on crutches in the locker room, with his left leg heavily wrapped.

The Panthers announced the second-round pick will undergo season-ending ankle surgery and will be placed on injured reserve.

Prior to the injury, Samuel was enjoying the most productive game of his career, recording a career-high five catches for 45 yards in the first half against the Dolphins.

Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula said the team would use a committee approach to replace Samuel. The Panthers shipped out Kelvin Benjamin before last month's trade deadline, so the receiving corps is pretty bare behind No. 1 wideout Devin Funchess. In terms of position flexibility, McCaffrey might be closest to Samuel, who also played running back at Ohio State. Shula said of Samuel.
