Former Ohio State H-back Curtis Samuel had to be helped off the field after suffering an injury on Monday Night Football.
Now a rookie for the Carolina Panthers, Samuel dropped what would have been a touchdown pass and suffered an ankle injury on the same play. He was unable to put any weight on his left ankle as he was carried off the field by Panthers athletic trainers.
