Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 16 vs TB (2 / 1 / 31 / 0 rec)

Damiere Byrd lit up Bank of America Stadium with Christmas cheer after an impressive 103-yard kick return touchdown, during which he made several Buccaneers coverage team players miss. His only other involvement as a receiver came on a hitch route that he turned up the field for a nice gain after the defensive back missed the straightforward tackle. Byrd left the game with a suspected knee injury and did not return.

2017 Week 15 vs GB (4 / 3 / 25 / 2 rec)

Two catches, two touchdowns for Damiere Byrd, who has been a pleasant surprise for the Panthers since second round pick Curtis Samuel went on injured reserve. Byrd's first touchdown catch was somewhat dubious, as it appeared his sprawling effort to make a catch at the back line of the end zone would be called an incomplete pass. Upon review, it appeared Byrd had a butt cheek down in bounds and it was ruled a touchdown. After initially bobbling the bullet pass from Cam Newton, Byrd will have been pleased that his perseverance paid off. His second touchdown came on a beautiful skinny post route in the red zone - and there was no doubt about this one. With the cornerback playing outside shade, Byrd attacked him from the snap with his quickness, before breaking inside and catching a bullet pass from his quarterback.

2017 Week 14 vs MIN (5 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)

A standout performance on a day of few notable ones in the Carolina passing attack, the returning Damiere Byrd made his presence felt. The quick-twitch speed merchant was able to separate from Minnesota's defensive backs on crossing patterns; if Cam Newton's passes had been better placed, he perhaps could have done more after the catch. In the closing stages Byrd ran an excellent pivot route on third down for a first down, catching the ball cleanly as a defensive back flew past his ear hole in a despairing attempt for the interception. A beautiful sideline grab outside his frame converted yet another third down on a day the Panthers needed every first down they could muster.

2017 Week 4 vs NE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)

Damiere Byrd, a favorite of the Panthers brass after impressing with his quickness and downfield speed in camp, assumed the Curtis Samuel role as the rookie was declared out. The diminutive Byrd was targeted on a deep route in the early stages, but he was well covered by two Patriots defensive backs and the pass was picked off. It was a rare miscue by Cam Newton, but to Byrd's credit he chased down the intercepting player and made a nice tackle. Byrd showed good explosiveness and urgency on an end around, but had to leave the game after the play. Early reports suggest he sustained a broken forearm.
