DeAngelo Williams out? Jonathan Stewart to see workload increase

If you've been holding onto Jonathan Stewart this year, the wait may have finally paid off.  Stewart has been struggling all season long, with only 1 rushing TD and 148 yards, only averaging 3 yards per carry.  This week the Panthers play the Rams and DeAngelo Williams may not be suiting up which mean Stewart finally will get a chance to get back on track.

CHARLOTTE — Running back DeAngelo Williams was held out of Wednesday’s practice because of a sprained foot, raising some question as to his availability for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.  Williams injured his foot In the final minutes of Carolina’s 23-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, but it’s not believed to be serious.  Even if Williams doesn’t play Sunday, the Panthers should be fine since running back is their deepest position. Jonathan Stewart would start, while Mike Goodson and Tyrell Sutton would work in off the bench.
