Panthers Quarterback to Miss Some Time

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Carolina Panthers quarterback Baker Mayfield will miss some time with a high ankle sprain. 

Further tests and opinions will determine how long Mayfield is expected to be sidelined, but this appears to set up P.J. Walker for a Week 6 start against the Los Angeles Rams. 

Mayfield was seen in a walking boot after Sunday's 37-15 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. However, X-rays came back negative on his foot earlier Monday morning. 

With Sam Darnold still unavailable, the Panthers are in an awkward spot heading into Week 6. The team is currently 1-4. 

Through five games, Mayfield has thrown 962 passing yards for four touchdowns and four interceptions. Mayfield was acquired by the Panthers from the Cleveland Browns this past summer.
