Fly Like a Byrd

Young Panthers wide receiver Damiere Byrd has outgrown the nest and flew for two touchdowns in last week's win over Green Bay.

They were the first two in his career, and hopefully many more to come.

Byrd suffered a broken arm early this season, so has only been active for the past three games.  But in that short time, he has hauled in 9 catches for 74 yards and is helping to bring speed to the receiver position with rookie Curtis Samuel on injured reserve.

You can hear my conversation here with the former South Carolina Gamecock about his big day against the Packers, and looking ahead to Christmas Eve versus Tampa Bay on WBT.
