Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Williams will miss his sixth game this season, leaving the Panthers' RB workload primarily on the shoulders of Jonathan Stewart, who returned from his own 3-game absence last week with 62 total yards on 14 touches.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and has been ruled out for the team's. Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Williams will miss his fourth game of the season. Meanwhile, Jonathan Stewart (knee) is listed as questionable, and it looks like it'll be the Darrin Reaves-Chris Ogbannaya-Fozzy Whittaker show again Sunday in Cincy. The best advice is to steer clear entirely given the Panthers' poor ground performance and the road matchup with what's sure to be a fired-up Bengals' D.

Updating an earlier report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is out for Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Well, Williams was back for 11 carries and 34 yards last week after missing the previous two games, but the Panthers are now down to undrafted rookie Darrin Reaves, who will get the start Sunday against the Bears.

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is 'week to week', but his status for Week 5 against the Chicago Bears is in serious doubt.
Huddle Up: The Panthers may have to go to the scrap heap for running backs, unless Jonathan Stewart is able to shake off his knee injury and return. They activated Darrin Reaves from the practice squad a couple weeks ago and he saw a dozen carries in Week 4, though they only produced 26 yards.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 4 game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to a league source. Williams will be evaluated further Monday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Williams and Jonathan Stewart aren't doing a very good job of alternating their injuries, opting instead to both be hurt at the same time. And with Cam Newton not running, the Panthers have been zero threat on the ground. We'll see if either Williams or Stewart can answer the bell in Week 5.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hamstring) is participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Strong sign that Williams will return Sunday after missing the last 2 games. The Panthers, meanwhile, certainly need him back with Mike Tolbert going on short-term IR this week and the oft-injured Jonathan Stewart week-to-week with a knee issue.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hamstring) is expected to be ready to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. His injury had been called a thigh injury, but he said Friday, Sept. 19, that he has been battling a hamstring issue. He took reps with the first-team offense Friday, and appears ready to go barring a setback.
Huddle Up: Officially a game-time decision, but the signs are positive. DeAngelo is a player you need to track during Sunday morning inactive announcements.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Williams was back after missing practices Wednesday and Thursday, and it's shaping up to be a game-time decision -- not exactly optimal for fantasy owners as the Panthers don't play until Sunday night.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: It's looking like it'll be Jonathan Stewart time once again this week, although wait and see if Williams is able to get on the practice field Friday.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and be ready to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Williams sat out in Week 2 with a thigh injury that flared up earlier in the week. Williams led the team with 14 carries and 72 yards rushing in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Hope you used Jonathan Stewart in Week 2 while the using was good.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and has head coach Ron Rivera on alert. "I'm concerned,'' Rivera told ESPN. "He's a running back and he's got to rely on that burst. Based on what he ran today, I've got to see where he is (Saturday). If he's the slightest bit hampered by it, (he'll sit).''
Huddle Up: Williams owners are going to have to monitor the RB throughout the weekend, and if he can't go, it'll be a rare opportunity to get Jonathan Stewart into your lineup.

Carolina Panthers general manager David Gettleman indicated the team likely will keep RB DeAngelo Williams, RB Jonathan Stewart and FB Mike Tolbert even though they are combined to count more than $14.8 million against the salary cap next season.
Huddle Up: Because when the best/most productive runner on your team is your quarterback and you have a desperate need for playmakers elsewhere in the offense, why wouldn't you bring all three running backs back to take a $15 million bite out of your salary cap? Same ol' same ol' in Carolina, where Williams, Stewart, and Tolbert will cannibalize each other's fantasy values once again.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is probable for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Williams will return after his Week 13 absence and figures to resume his role as the RB getting the most touches in the Panthers' muddled backfield.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 5, and it looks like he'll be able to play in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Williams missed the Week 13 win over the Bucs, but he doesn't want to miss Sunday night's NFC South showdown in New Orleans. Keep in mind that the same old Carolina RB fantasy quagmire will still be waiting for Williams upon his return.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadricep) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is questionable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: It looks like it'll be a game-time decision Sunday for Williams, who hasn't practiced all week. Fellow RBs Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert also are banged up, coach Ron Rivera said Friday he expects both to play.

Posted: 11/27/2013 5:49pm et
Carolina Panthers RBs DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps), Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (knee) all missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Now starting at running back for the Panthers: Cam Newton! But seriously, keep an eye on these guys; we can't imagine they will actually miss the game, but if Williams gets the backfield to himself he could have a nice day.

Carolina Panthers RBs DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert had 13, nine and six carries, respectively, in Week 9.
Huddle Up: As suspected, Jonathan Stewart came in to muck things up for Williams.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is probable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Williams was back at practice after missing Wednesday and Thursday, but more concerning to his fantasy owners is the impending return this week of RB Jonathan Stewart, who's sure to cut into Williams' touches.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles), who is still currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list, looked and felt great in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and the team expects him to be active in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. 'I feel ready,' Stewart said. 'Today was a good step forward putting the pads on. It felt good going out there and hitting the field full speed with some contact and running plays with contact.' Stewart had the majority of snaps in practice with RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) being held out for precautionary reasons. Head coach Ron Rivera continues to say that Williams will remain the starter and that RB Mike Tolbert will continue to see touches. 'We can't force things,' Rivera said. 'We can't. What we've got to do is Mike (Shula, offensive coordinator) has to continue to call his game the way he wants to call it, and at the end of the day when you get your opportunity make the best of it.'
Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see how Stewart is injected into the mix here. Keep an eye on Williams this week.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) suffered a bruised quadriceps during the team's Week 8 game, but head coach Ron Rivera said he believes Williams will be able to play Week 9.
Huddle Up: Williams has the luxury of 10 days to heal up but owners will want to monitor his status closely next week. With Jonathan Stewart about to return and Mike Tolbert seeing more touches, Williams can't afford to miss time.
