Tyler Brayton's ankle just sprained, not broken

There wasn't a ton of good news for the Carolina Panthers in their first preseason game -- a 17-12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Matt Moore didn't look great, Jimmy Clausen looked promising but not ready, Armanti Edwards can't catch the ball and so forth and so on. (Note: not all of this is devastating, but it's not great).

One thing that did stand out though, was a surprising pass rush that generated six sacks against the Ravens. Considering that defensive line is at the top of weaknesses for the Panthers, that's good news.

Things almost got really worse though, when Tyler Brayton, with two sacks in the first quarter, went to the ground clutching his ankle following that second sack.

Fortunately, though, Brayton, according to Steve Reed of the Gaston Gazette , only sprained the ankle -- as opposed to a break that would have been devastating to the Panthers' pass rush.

Oddly, Brayton's injury was the only one worth noting from a really sloppy (weather-wise) preseason game.

Write-up authentically valuation what we should penned, as I'm repeatedly Super Bowl Packers Jerseys looking for a completely different attitude in regards to points.

However, this is only pre-season game 1, so I dont think fans of any team should be concerned of poor performances after 1 preseason game, let's see after game 3 where things stand....
yeah and i dont think the team should be concerned, it's a first preseason game. I thought Moore did ok, but like i said, it was hard to offically tell since his recievers and line made some mistakes, but it's game one, things should improve later.
last thing though, I totally agree on Hardy. My take is that he is Peppers light in that he has a great physique but unlike Peppers I never saw him take a play off last night and after 8 years of Pep playing i have lost count of the plays (and games) he took off.
yep, i saw Hardy and he looked good, i noticed him rushing the passer and stopping the run, he needs to be looked at as a starter next week.

I agree with your assessment Skins4, Moore was OK, just not a lot of help, especially with the line causing penalties negating good plays. However, this is only pre-season game 1, so I dont think fans of any team should be concerned of poor performances after 1 preseason game, let's see after game 3 where things stand.... last thing though, I totally agree on Hardy. My take is that he is Peppers light in that he has a great physique but unlike Peppers I  never saw him take a play off last night and after 8 years of Pep playing i have lost count of the plays (and games) he took off.

disagree, Matt Moore looked decent (his line and recievers didnt help him too much), Clausen looked pretty good, Edwards looked awful. Tyler Brayton did look good and i also think Greg Hardy needs to get a chance to start next week. He was a beast yesterday.
