The Carolina Panthers are really hoping that something can change in week nine of the regular season, and maybe all they need is a short week to get motivated again. With a short week though, there is less time for injuries to heal and that makes for six people out against the New Orleans Saints.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he expects running back DeAngelo Williams to play Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints with first place in the NFC South on the line.
The Carolina Panthers know the Seattle Seahawks have been on a downward spiral too, but they can’t underestimate them. That proves to be even more true with the Panthers looking at seven players listed as out on this week’s injury report.
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.
