CHARLOTTE (WAVY) – Taylor Heinicke continues to make his case for the backup quarterback spot behind Cam Newton in Carolina. Old Dominion’s all-time leading passer completed 5 of 6 passes for 56 yards, and out-ran Patriots defensive end Eric Lee for a touchdown on fourth-and-1 in the third quarter. 

Heinicke’s stretch to the endzone was the first score of the game, though his playing time came to an abrupt end when he was tackled at the knee later in the quarter. He walked off under his own power, but did not return.
