Grier (foot) was fully cleared of his bone bruise and mid-foot sprain in February, Joseph Person of The Athletic reports.
The 2019 third-round pick started the final two games of his rookie year and completed 28 of 52 passes for 228 yards and four interceptions, but he went down in the season finale with the foot injury. Grier certainly struggled in his first NFL showing, but the Panthers were in a complete tailspin throughout the second half of the season. Teddy Bridgewater is set to start after signing a three-year, $63 million deal, while Grier will battle XFL standout P.J. Walker for backup duties.
