James Bradberry Carolina Panthers
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Carolina Panthers are already short on talent at the cornerback position, so it was somewhat concerning when James Bradberry went down with an injury Monday.

The second-year cornerback was diagnosed with a fractured wrist by team doctors, per the Panthers website. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that he might still be able to practice with a cast on his wrist during minicamp next week and is expected to be unrestricted for training camp.

A second-round pick out of Samford last year, Bradberry appeared in 13 games as a rookie, intercepting two passes and racking up 59 total tackles. He was a key player in the team’s pass defense, which struggled without Josh Norman.
