Bryce Young, a rookie quarterback, did not participate in practice on Thursday and is not anticipated to suit up this week against the Seahawks.
With his recent ankle injury, he missed his first practice on Thursday. During the period of practice that was open to the media, he was on the field and stood with the other offensive players.
Will Young Play against Seattle?
Due to the ankle injury sustained last week against the Saints, quarterback Bryce Young was absent from Friday’s practice and will not play against Seattle.
The seasoned Andy Dalton will start for the Panthers in that case. At the same time, Jake Luton is anticipated to be promoted from the practice squad as the backup for the coming week.
What happened to Bryce Young?
Bryce Young sustained an ankle sprain. The team is unsure of precisely when the damage occurred in his situation.
According to Panthers Wire, Carolina head coach Frank Reich claimed there was “no clarity of when or how.” To his credit, Bryce simply played on his competitive nature and excitement.
At some point, every athlete here has probably dealt with a sprained ankle, as well as other types of sprains and related injuries.
But in the end, Young’s problem became clear.
But playing on it during the game, I’m certain it only got worse. And, of course, it rears its ugly head when you stop moving,” Reich continued. But Bryce deserves credit—we are encouraged by the course he is taking.
When Will Young Return?
Even under ideal conditions, it can be challenging to pinpoint an injury’s recovery period because each person’s body heals at a different rate. Things can be much more difficult to foresee when discussing an ankle injury.
After all, even the smallest twinge might cause trouble when fleeing from an approaching pass rusher.
However, Reich did offer some information about his quarterback’s ankle.
“One to two weeks,” they claim. When asked about a likely recovery time, the head coach responded, “Doctors are saying’ one to two weeks.
“I believe he is headed in the right direction and will return as soon as possible. He is our man, and he will be prepared to leave when he returns and is cleared.”
For reference, we know the quarterback won’t be going to Seattle in Week 3. He would be eligible to play again after a one- or two-week sabbatical on October 1 against the Minnesota Vikings and on October 8 in Detroit against the Lions, respectively.
The Panthers’ starting quarterback will be Andy Dalton.
Andy Dalton took up the duties with the starters while he was away. On Wednesday, they added Jake Luton to the practice squad to have a backup quarterback.
Three Panthers players were designated as limited participants, including running back Miles Sanders (pectoral) and outside linebackers Brian Burns (ankle) and Justin Houston (calf).
Outside linebackers Amaré Barno (thigh) and Chandler Wooten (knee) were listed as full participants.
