Panthers rookie QB Bryce Young to return in Week 4 vs. Vikings

The Carolina Panthers will be back to full strength at the quarterback position in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, with rookie quarterback Bryce Young set to return from the ankle injury that kept him out of last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

According to ESPN, Young will be the starter when they take on Kirk Cousins and company on Sunday.

Bryce Young officially will be back as the starter for the Carolina Panthers when they face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Bank of America Stadium.

Usually, ankle injuries are something that a player in the league can bounce back from quickly, especially a quarterback who relies on his mobility to make an impact on the football field.

However, Panthers head coach Frank Reich appears confident in his rookie after he got in a good week of practice, as the first-year quarterback exceeded his expectations.

“I thought it was good,” Reich said of Young’s week. “Probably even better than I expected it to be. … Bryce will be our quarterback.”

Unfortunately for Young and company, the rookie’s first year hasn’t gone as planned thus far, with the No. 1 overall pick losing each game he’s played thus far in a Panthers uniform.

The Panthers head into this game against the Vikings with a record of 0-3 and desperately wanting to get a win in order to get on the right track this season. Minnesota will be in the same situation, as Cousins and his squad have also yet to get a win in 2023.
