Wide reciever Jerricho Cotchery (ankle) will likely be sidelined until after the Panthers' Week 5 bye, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Cotchery missed Sunday's win over the Saints after suffering a high ankle sprain during Week 2. Given the extended recovery timetable associated with that injury, Cotchery is not expected to be ready to return yet. He could use the Panthers' upcoming bye to gain an additional week of treatment ahead of a potential Week 6 return.
