Bridgewater was replaced by P.J. Walker
in Sunday's season-ending 33-7 loss to New Orleans, and coach Matt Rhule revealed after the game that Bridgewater's exit was due to an ankle injury, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site
reports. Prior to his exit, Bridgewater completed 13 of 23 passes for 176 yards and two interceptions while adding seven yards on three rushing attempts.
