Carolina Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Bridgewater has some swelling in his knee but no structural damage and is considered day-to-day with his status "uncertain" for this week's game at the Detroit Lions.

Bridgewater limped off the field with 5:24 remaining in the game and was not available to speak with the media postgame.

Before the injury, Bridgewater was 18-for-24 passing for 136 yards and two touchdowns, along with a rushing touchdown.

In his first season in Carolina, Bridgewater has completed 72.1 percent of his passes and thrown for 2,552 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 10 starts.

If Bridgewater were to miss anytime, either backup quarterback Will Grier or P.J. Walker would get the start for the 3-7 Panthers.
