Panthers' Darnold sheds mask, won't discuss vaccination

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) Sam Darnold wasn't willing to divulge whether he's been vaccinated against the coronavirus as the Carolina Panthers reported to training camp.

Instead, Carolina's new starting quarterback said his focus is on making "smart decisions" on the field as he tries to resurrect his NFL career after going 13-25 in three seasons in New York, prompting the Jets to trade him to the Panthers.

"People outside looking in can say there is a lot of pressure on (me) and he's got to win - and that's true," Darnold said. "But at the end of the day it's me going out and doing everything I can today to get better."
