Taylor Heinicke

Last week, Allen was promoted to the active roster as a backup following the team shutting down Cam Newton.

Quarterback Taylor Heinicke has been placed on injured reserve with a left elbow injury following his first National Football League start, so the Panthers have brought back the man he beat out in the summer for the backup job.

In their place, here comes reserve quarterback Kyle Allen.

Heinicke got his first career start against the Falcons and injured his elbow on a hit by Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jackson in the second quarter.

The former five-star recruit played his first two years of college football at Texas A&M, where he became the starter four games into his true freshman year. He spent seven weeks on the practice squad prior to being activated.

As for the Saints, they've made no official announcement on whether they will rest their starters, and head coach Sean Payton has been eager to shoot down any questions about that decision.

In a corresponding move, the Panthers signed Garrett Gilbert to back up Allen. It would be a surprise if we see more of Drew Brees than Teddy Bridgewater.
