Now that raises other concerns about his durability but that is not a good basis for your claim.
that's ducktales. yes he did have turf toe but the main reason he didn't win that battle was because he sucked. panthers already brought in some competition for the position. he was never going to win it. here's an article from preseason 2011 where a panthers beat writer laughed at the notion of bernie starting.

Looking at Panthers' depth chart
Some other items of interest on Carolina’s depth chart.
- Mackenzy Bernadeau is listed as the starter at right guard. Yeah, like that’s going to happen. The Panthers went out and grabbed veterans Max Jean-Gilles and Geoff Hangartner after injuries wiped out this position. It’s likely one of them will start.
