Panthers hold QB Young out of practice, cite ankle injury



CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CHARLOTTE SPORTS LIVE) — The Carolina Panthers say starting quarterback Bryce Young did not participate in Wednesday’s practice because of an ankle injury.

Team officials had a walk-through Wednesday before Sunday’s Week 2 game in Seattle.

The rookie completed 22 of his 33 passing attempts for 153 yards and a touchdown in a Monday night 20-17 loss to the Saints.

Team officials said quarterback Jake Luton moved up to the practice squad Wednesday. The Panthers (0-2) have veteran backup Andy Dalton in reserve.

The Panthers will have a full practice Thursday.
