With Curtis Samuel (knee) inactive, Roberts is set for an increased role, David Newton of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Samuel was a surprise scratch with the knee issue, so Roberts will assume his third-string role. Roberts has seen just six targets this season, hauling in four passes for 31 yards. He'll look to take some of the attention and burden off starters Robby Anderson and DJ Moore against the stingy Chicago pass defense Sunday.

Roberts caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts moved the sticks with a 12-yard reception on Carolina's second drive, helping set up a field goal for the game's opening points. Although he made a minimal impact after that, Roberts at least featured on one-third of his team's offensive snaps, a role that should lend itself to occasional catches in upcoming weeks as well.

Roberts caught one of his two targets for five yards in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts played just five offensive snaps, so him being targeted on two of those was noteworthy. Nonetheless, with Brandon Zylstra featuring for eight plays, Roberts actually placed fifth among Carolina's wideouts in snaps, a reality that should significantly restrict expectations for him ahead of Week 2's game in Tampa Bay.

Roberts (concussion) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts suffered a concussion during training camp, but his current absence from the injury report is an indication that he's fully cleared the league's five-step protocol. He's in line to handle a depth receiver role against the Raiders on Sunday.

Roberts (concussion) was spotted at Thursday's practice wearing a green non-contact jersey, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts isn't yet cleared for contact, but his return to practice in a restricted capacity is indicative that he's making progress through the five-step concussion protocol. He should be in the mix for the No. 4 receiver gig behind D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel when healthy.

Roberts was placed in concussion protocol Saturday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts, who joined the Panthers on a one-year deal in the offseason, was expected to provide some quality depth behind the big-name trio of D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel. Even if Roberts were to miss some time, it's unlikely he'll lose spot on the 53-man roster with castoffs such as Keith Kirkwood and Pharoh Cooper behind him on the depth chart.

Roberts (ankle) agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Panthers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts provided a hint of his next destination Tuesday via his personal Twitter account, posting "Joe Brady" and nothing more. He'll now get to work the Panthers new offensive coordinator, joining a young team that's swapping out Cam Newton for Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback. Assuming there are no major complications from his January ankle injury, the 29-year-old Roberts should be in the mix for Carolina's No. 3 receiver job behind D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel. The occupant of that role in 2019, Jarius Wright, is now an unrestricted free agent.

Roberts suffered an ankle sprain during a 28-12 loss to Tennessee in the divisional round of the playoffs, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts suffered his injury late in the second quarter, finishing with two catches for 30 yards (plus a drop) on four targets. Coach John Harbaugh suggested after the game that the wide receiver wouldn't have been able to play if Baltimore had advanced in the playoffs. In any case, Roberts will turn 29 in February and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. The Ravens seemed to appreciate his work as a run blocker, but he'll presumably need to battle for his snaps even if the team re-signs him for 2020. Marquise Brown and Willie Snead appear to be locked into their respective roles, essentially leaving one starting WR spot up for grabs in Baltimore.

Roberts caught two of four targets for 30 yards in the divisional-round loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran recorded 21 catches for 271 yards on 35 targets over the course of the regular season and added to that total in the postseason. The Ravens are looking to upgrade their receiving corps in the offseason and build around rookie wideout Marquise Brown. While Roberts offered some marginal value in the offense in 2019, it's entirely possible that the Ravens let him walk in free agency given that he was on a one-year deal.

Roberts was unable to haul in his only target of Sunday's 28-10 win over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday snapped Roberts' six-game streak with at least one catch, though it's hard to read too much into a game in which Lamar Jackson and other starters sat and the Steelers couldn't get going on offense. The Ravens are off this week with a bye. Afterwards, they will play either the Texans, Bills or Titans. In two games against the Texans and Bills this season, Roberts recorded two total catches on five targets for 23 yards and a touchdown.
