Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 11. Carolina "hasn't given up on the idea" of Bridgewater playing, per Ian Rapoport. This sounds like it's going to be a gametime decision. Phillip Walker would likely start, though he and Will Grier were splitting reps this week. If Bridgewater is out, it's a downgrade for the entire Carolina passing game.
There has been reports that Bridgewater is unlikely to play, but this gives the team until inactives are due to make a decision.

Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Ian Rapoport reported that Bridgewater is "unlikely" to play but he still has a chance. Phillip Walker relieved Bridgewater in Week 10 so presumably he would draw the start but apparently Walker and Will Grier have been splitting reps in practice. If Bridgewater can't play then it's a downgrade for the whole offense.
Bridgewater’s MCL sprain is considered minor, and coach Matt Rhule expressed optimism yesterday about Bridgewater’s chances for playing Sunday vs. the Lions Pelissero's tweet went on to say. We have Walker as the team's QB2 with Grier as the QB3 on the 4for4.com depth charts. The Panthers, according to those who follow the team, have been careful with injuries in the past, so it's not out of the question they don't rush Bridgewater back to action. It's a situation worth monitoring this week.
