Two games into his NFL career, Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young has hit a roadblock.

Not only has the team started off winless, but it now appears Young will be watching the team’s next game from the sidelines.

After missing the Panthers’ previous two practices with an ankle injury, Young will now not be suiting up for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Backup quarterback Andy Dalton will be starting in place of the No. 1 overall pick from this past year’s draft.

Through two games Young has completed 59.2% of his passes for 299 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Panthers were clearly not expected to compete this season, but steady improvement throughout the year will be expected from Young upon his return.
