  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Week 3 start likely awaits

    Dalton is in line to start Sunday's game in Seattle after the Panthers announced Thursday that No. 1 quarterback Bryce Young (ankle) is unlikely to play, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Young hasn't yet been officially ruled out for Sunday, but after logging no activity in practices Wednesday and Thursday after injuring his ankle in Monday's loss to to the Saints, he doesn't look as though he'll be available in anything more than a backup capacity if he suits up this weekend. For the second day in a row, Dalton worked with the first-team offense to prepare himself for what would be his first start with the Panthers. As a 14-game starter for the Saints a season ago, Dalton completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 7.6 yards per attempt and an 18:9 TD:INT, but he could struggle to replicate that level of efficiency while playing alongside a Carolina pass-catching corps that's less talented than what he worked with a year ago.

  • Panthers' Miles Sanders: Remains limited in practice

    Sanders (pectoral) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Sanders' reps were capped for the second day in a row while he continues to nurse a pectoral injury that he may have picked up in Monday's 20-17 loss to the Saints. The running back should still be in good shape to play this weekend in Seattle if he continues to practice in some capacity Friday, though he could end up carrying a designation into Sunday. If Sanders ultimately gets the green light to play, he would be taking handoffs from a new quarterback in Andy Dalton, who is expected to start Week 3 with Bryce Young (ankle) considered unlikely to play.

  • Panthers' Bryce Young: Likely to sit out Week 3

    The Panthers announced that Young (ankle) is unlikely to play Sunday in Seattle after sitting out practices Wednesday and Thursday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Andy Dalton took reps with the first-team offense for the second day in a row and is trending toward the Week 3 start while Young nurses the ankle injury he picked up in the Panthers' 20-17 loss to the Saints on Monday. Carolina hasn't officially ruled Young out from suiting up Sunday, but even if he practices in some fashion Friday and avoids the inactive list, he may be available only in a backup capacity behind Dalton. Carolina signed Jake Luton to its practice squad Wednesday and would likely elevate him to the 53-man roster if Young isn't deemed fit to handle backup duties this weekend.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Trending toward Week 3 start

    Dalton will work with the first-team offense at Thursday's practice with Bryce Young (ankle) sitting out the session and appears to be in line to start Sunday's game in Seattle, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Young picked up the ankle injury at some point during Monday's 20-17 loss to the Saints and will now be listed as a non-participant on the Panthers' first two Week 3 practice reports. Though Young could get back on the field Friday to practice in some fashion, David Newton of notes that Thursday's session is the most critical of the week for the Panthers with regard to installing their game plan for the matchup with Seattle. Additionally, Person notes that Dalton is set to meet with the media Thursday, an indication the Panthers are planning to proceed with him as their starter for Week 3. The 35-year-old is little more than a competent game manager at this stage of his career, but Dalton's experience, accuracy and ability to limit mistakes might be enough to lift up a Carolina offense that has struggled under Young's stewardship for the first two weeks of the season.

  • Panthers' Bryce Young: Missing another practice

    Young (ankle) won't participate in Thursday's practice, David Newton of reports.

    Young is tending to an ankle issue in the aftermath of Monday's 20-17 loss to the Saints, but the severity of the injury remains unclear. The rookie signal-caller was estimated as a non-participant for Wednesday's walk-through practice and will now remain off the field Thursday while the Panthers reconvene for a more traditional practice. As Newton notes, Thursday's practice is a critical day in terms of installing the game plan for Sunday's game against Seattle, so Young's absence from the field likely hints that he's trending toward missing out on the start this weekend. Before ruling on his status for Week 3, the Panthers will wait and see what Young is able to do at practice Friday, if anything. If Young is ruled out for Sunday or is available only as an emergency backup, veteran Andy Dalton would receive the start under center.

  • Panthers' Deion Jones: Signed to active roster

    Jones was signed to the Panthers' active roster Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official website reports.

    Jones will join Carolina ahead of their Week 3 road matchup with the Seahawks. The linebacker will help replace Shaq Thompson (lower leg) on the Panthers defense after Thompson was placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the year with a fractured fibula Tuesday. Jones appeared in 11 games with the Browns last season, recording 44 tackles, including 2.5 sacks.

  • Panthers' Justin Houston: Limited with calf injury

    Houston (calf) participated in Wednesday's practice in a limited capacity.

    Houston looks to have gotten dinged up during Monday's loss to the Saints, though the fact that he was limited in Wednesday's walkthrough is encouraging. Through two contests this season, Houston has recorded four tackles (two solo), a half-sack and one pass defensed. He will work to get healthy in time for Sunday's matchup against the Seahawks.

  • Panthers' Brian Burns: Dealing with ankle issue

    Burns (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Burns appears to have sustained an ankle injury during Monday's loss to the Saints, in which he quietly recorded two solo tackles. It's a good sign that he was limited in Wednesday's walkthrough, though. Barring any setbacks, Burns seems to have solid odds of being cleared to suit up for Sunday's road matchup in Seattle.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Leads starters with Young injured

    Dalton led the starting offense in Wednesday's practice with Bryce Young unavailable due to an ankle injury, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    Young wasn't removed from Monday's 20-17 loss to the Saints -- apart from one short-yardage snap that Dalton took -- but the rookie apparently injured his ankle at some point and is now looking iffy for Sunday's game in Seattle. It might help the Carolina pass catchers if Dalton ends up under center for a week or two, as Young ranks last among qualified passers with 4.2 yards per attempt through the first two games of the season.

  • Panthers' Miles Sanders: Limited Wednesday

    Sanders was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a pectoral injury.

    Sanders likely picked up the injury during Monday's loss to the Saints, but it's at least encouraging that he was on the field as a limited participant two days later. The Panthers hosted a walk-through practice Wednesday, however, so Sanders' activity at Thursday's practice will probably be more telling with regard to his chances of suiting up Sunday versus the Seahawks. Backup Chuba Hubbard would benefit from increased touches if Sanders is hampered at all.
