Bryce Young Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Carolina Panthers rookie star quarterback Bryce Young had not practiced all week due to an ankle injury and there was heavy doubt that he would be able to play during this week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. But now it’s official, and he might actually miss more time than that, too.

During his press conference on Friday, Carolina Panthers head coach Frank Reich announced that rookie quarterback Bryce Young would miss this week’s game with an ankle injury, revealing that the injury is expected to sideline him for about 1-2 weeks.

“Docs are saying one-to-two weeks,” Reich said in his press conference. “I think Bryce has done well this week. I’m optimistic that he’s on the right path, that whatever the soonest he can get back is, he will get back. And when he gets back and when he’s cleared, he’s our guy and he’ll be ready to go.”

It’s not great news for Young as he’s dealing with injuries like this so early in his NFL career, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on Twitter as a result.

The biggest knock on Young heading into the NFL was his perceived lack of durability, so it’s not a great sign that he’s already missing games.
