SALT LAKE CITY – The Carolina Panthers placed former BYU offensive lineman Brady Christensen on the injured reserve on Wednesday after suffering a bicep injury against the Falcons.

Christensen is expected to miss the entirety of the 2023 NFL season.

Christensen played in every offensive snap for the Panthers season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.

Carolina lost to Atlanta following two fourth-quarter touchdowns by another former Cougar Tyler Allgeier.
