Former Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen made his NFL debut Sunday for the Carolina Panthers.
Allen made his first professional entrance in the Panthers’ game against the Atlanta Falcons after backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke went down with an elbow injury in the second quarter.
Allen quickly went to work, going 4-of-4 passing for 38 yards on his first drive, which ended in a Panthers 50-yard field goal.
Heinicke re-entered the game for Allen on Carolina’s ensuing possession. Heinecke earned his first career start in place of Cam Newton, who will miss the final two games of the season due to a shoulder injury.
Allen went undrafted in 2018 and then signed with the Panthers. He was waived in September, and then signed to the practice team the following day. He was promoted to the active roster on Thursday.
Allen played at A&M from 2014-15, signing with the Aggies as a 5-star prospect. In two seasons, Allen went 9-5 as A&M’s starting quarterback, throwing for 3,532 passing yards and 33 touchdowns. He transferred from A&M following the conclusion of the 2015 regular season.
