Carolina Panthers sign Charlotte receiver Austin Duke

The Carolina Panthers have added receiver Austin Duke to their practice squad. According to the Panthers, they have placed receiver Keyarris Garret on the injured list, making room for Duke.

Duke had an impressive training camp with the Panthers as an undrafted receiver out of Charlotte. From rookie camp through training camp in Spartanburg, Duke made play after play. However, when preseason began his opportunities became more limited as his playing time with Cam Newton and Derek Anderson all but disappeared.

Now Austin Duke has a fresh start to get back into the spotlight as a member of the practice squad. With Curtis Samuel still not at 100% and the Carolina Panthers still in need of a player that can stretch the field, the door is cracked open for Duke to once again make an impression.
