The Carolina Panthers have listed quarterback Teddy Bridgewater as inactive, meaning he and will not play in Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Bridgewater is dealing with a sprained MCL in his right knee, but was unable to go through pre-game warmups without an issue. He needs additional time to fully recover and will look to return Week 12 against the Vikings.

P.J. Walker, who will start on Sunday, is active, as well as backup quarterback Will Grier.

Running back Christian McCaffrey was inactive for the second straight week with a shoulder injury.
