Yetur Gross-Matos designated to return from injured list by Panthers

Former Penn State star Yetur Gross-Matos could be close to returning to game action with the Carolina Panthers after missing three games with an ankle injury.

Gross-Matos, the 38th overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, has appeared in four games this season for Carolina, recording six tackles (4 solo) with one sack and one forced fumble. He also missed a game with a concussion.

Here’s the update from the Panthers’ press release Thursday and when Gross-Matos could return to the field:

CHARLOTTE — The Panthers on Thursday designated defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos to return from the reserve/injured list.

Gross-Matos has missed Carolina’s last three games after suffering a high ankle sprain against the Falcons in Week 5. He now has a 21-day window to practice before the Panthers must activate him to the 53-man roster or place him on season-ending IR. Gross-Matos may be placed on the active roster at any point during those 21 days.

The second-round pick has flashed in his 78 defensive snaps over four games, recording a strip-sack in the Week 4 win over the Cardinals. Gross-Matos missed the Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay with a concussion.
