As soon as it started, Taylor Heinicke's time as starting quarterback for the Carolina Panthers is done. 

The team put Heinicke on injured reserve with a left elbow injury. He suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday's game against Atlanta before returning to finish his first career start. 

Heinicke ended the game with 247 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. 

Carolina announced that it signed quarterback Garrett Gilbert for the season finale at New Orleans.
