The Carolina Panthers have officially updated the status of starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater before this afternoon’s game.
Bridgewater will be inactive as he continues to deal with the effects of a sprained MCL suffered last weekend. This news comes two days after Carolina head coach Matt Rhule declared Bridgewater to be a “game-time decision.”
With Bridgewater on the bench, reports indicate it will be former XFL star P.J. Walker taking the snaps for the Panthers today. Walker is 3-of-8 for 15 yards in two games this season.
Will Grier, Carolina’s 2019 third-round pick, will serve as the backup.

The Panthers will face the Detroit Lions this afternoon from Bank of America Stadium.
Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET.
