The Panthers remain hopeful that Bridgewater (knee) will be able to start Sunday's game against the Lions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A report Thursday suggested the veteran quarterback was unlikely to play, but he apparently looked better Friday, potentially putting him on track to carry a questionable designation into Sunday's game. The Panthers haven't clarified whom might start at quarterback if Bridgewater can't play, as the team has both P.J. Walker and Will Grier on its roster.
