It’s Next Man Up As Panthers Prepare For Chiefs In Kansas City

The Panthers have had their fair share of injuries this season, so once again they have to reach into their bag of reserves and pluck out second-year tackle Sione Fua to take over for Ron Edwards, who is gone for the season with a dislocated elbow. Meanwhile, running back DeAngelo Williams is getting the reps while Jonathan Stewart nurses his second high ankle injury of the year.

The Redskins-Panthers Game Could Predict The Election, But Injuries May Veto A Good Game
