Panthers Activate WR Keith Kirkwood From IR, Promote Two


The Carolina Panthers announced Saturday that they’ve activated WR Keith Kirkwood from injured reserve and promoted DT Woodrow Hamilton and DE Austin Larkin to their active roster. Keith Kirkwood

Kirkwood, 25, originally signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Temple back in 2018 but was released after a few days and was added by the Saints. He was among New Orleans’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason before re-signing to their practice squad.

New Orleans promoted Kirkwood to their active roster in 2018. Unfortunately, he was placed on injured reserve last year with a hamstring injury before being designated to return. 

The Panthers signed Kirkwood to a contract this past March after the Saints declined to tender Kirkwood a restricted contract.

In 2018, Kirkwood appeared in eight games for the Saints and caught 13 passes for 209 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
