Headed for injured reserve

Head coach Ron Rivera indicated Tuesday that Fitzpatrick (hip) will be placed on injured reserve in the near future, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

This is hardly a surprise given Fitzpatrick's 6-to-8 week timetable for the hip subluxation he suffered during Sunday's season opener versus the Chargers. The veteran was still involved in meetings Tuesday and figures to be available again at some point this season, but Taylor Heinicke is in line to take over the starting duties in his absence. Kyle Allen should serve as the top backup.
