Gross breaks right ankle
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina left tackle Jordan Gross broke his right ankle in the Panthers' 28-19 win over Atlanta.
Gross was blocking midway through the second quarter Sunday when a Falcons player fell into his leg, which bent awkwardly. The medical staff put a brace on his leg and ankle before he was carted to the locker room.
Coach John Fox said after the game that doctors told him Gross' ankle was broken, leaving Carolina without the anchor of its offensive line indefinitely.
