CHARLOTTE — Defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos on Thursday missed a second straight practice with an ankle injury.
The second-round pick played 17 snaps in Sunday’s win over the Falcons. He went off the field gingerly in the third quarter before returning in the fourth. But late in the period, he was declared out.
Head coach Matt Rhule had no update on Gross-Matos on Thursday.
Defensive end Brian Burns (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice, an upgrade after not participating on Wednesday. He was in a green jersey for the day’s session, signifying no contact, as he works his way through the concussion protocol.
“He was allowed to do some things today,” Rhule said. “He looked good, would certainly love to have him (against the Bears).”
