The Carolina Panthers aren’t looking as strong as they did at the beginning of the season, but that can change with a win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Unfortunately, the running game and a few other positions are a bit of the walking wounded.
The Carolina Panthers are hoping to rebound this week and stop the slide from continuing. Unfortunately, they are going to have to do it without much of a running game at all as their two top backs likely won’t even suit up for the match-up with the Chicago Bears.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is “doubtful” for this weekend’s game against the Chicago Bears, the latest setback for Carolina’s ground game.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is back — and so is his sense of humor.
Williams conducted an interview at his locker on Thursday wearing clear motorcycle goggles, a subtle response to Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith’s comments earlier this offseason about playing the Panthers.
The Carolina Panthers have no semblance of a running game this season at all. DeAngelo Williams has missed two of three games due to injury and his back-ups can’t get anything going at all. Now, the rushing attack took another blow as Mike Tolbert is going to be sidelined for quite some time.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Pro Bowl fullback Mike Tolbert has a hairline fracture in his right leg and running Jonathan Stewart has a severely sprained right knee, adding to the team’s mounting injury problems in the backfield.
The Carolina Panthers are currently looking at one of the longest injury reports they’ve had in quite some time, but it’s not all bad news as they head into their game with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Most of the injuries aren’t serious, but they’ve got to be careful not to worsen any that are lingering.
The Carolina Panthers are little bit beat up this week after the win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one, but there is one important thing coming from this week’s injury list. Quarterback Cam Newton is on the list again, but it will be next to impossible to keep him out of the line-up this week versus the Detroit Lions.
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Help is on the way for the Carolina Panthers’ offense.
Coach Ron Rivera said quarterback Cam Newton and running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart will play in the team’s second preseason game Aug. 17 against Kansas City. All three practiced Sunday after missing Carolina’s preseason opener against Buffalo.
On Monday afternoon, Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams tweeted out a picture of his generosity that goes off the football field.
