The Carolina Panthers have not played nearly as well as they thought this season and the expectations have not been met at many positions. Oddly enough though, the offensive production is coming from the position with the least amount of experience.
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.
The Carolina Panthers don’t have a horribly long injury list, but the handful of names on it are causes for concern. The biggest problems are in the offensive backfield and the secondary, and those are problems they can’t afford with a game against the Baltimore Ravens coming up.
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.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera says if Cam Newton wants to take the next step in his progression as a quarterback — and extend his career — he needs to borrow a page from Michael Jordan.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart reminded teammates, fans and upcoming opponents just how dangerous he is with the ball in his hands, rushing for two touchdowns in Carolina’s 28-16 preseason win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Now he has to prove he can stay healthy.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — If Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera has his way, Cam Newton won’t be running as many read-option plays as he has in the past.
If Jonathan Stewart runs the way he did Sunday night, Newton won’t need to.
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.
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart isn’t concerned about his latest injury limiting his effectiveness this season.
