Bryce Young returns to game after getting lit up in scary scene

The Carolina Panthers didn’t even have to begin their New Year’s Eve matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars to face adversity.

During pre-game warmups, kicker Eddy Piñeiro tweaked his hamstring—throwing his status into doubt and his team into a harsh domino effect. So since they didn’t have the option of a field goal available to them, the Panthers had to take a gung-ho approach—one that nearly cost them their starting quarterback on their very first possession.

Instead of the usual three-point try, Bryce Young and the Carolina offense had to go for the sticks on a fourth-and-7 from the Jacksonville 21-yard line. But the rookie passer ended up eating a punishing sack from Jaguars defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris.

Young remained on the ground, clutching his back in a pretty scary scene.

The 22-year-old, however, didn’t even miss a snap. Young, after getting some attention in the medical tent, was right back on the field to start the next drive.

He may only be 5-foot-10 and 205 pounds (on a very good day), but Young certainly isn’t lacking an ounce of toughness.
