News: Ogbonnaya split first-team carries with Darrin Reaves on Wednesday, the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Ogbonnaya was signed by the Panthers this week amid numerous backfield injuries leaving Carolina short on ball-carrying options. Given that dire situation, Ogbonnaya has been fast-tracked to work with the Panthers' starting offense this week. With DeAngelo Williams (ankle) already ruled out, and both Jonathan Stewart (knee) and Fozzy Whittaker (quadriceps) having uncertain statuses, Ogbonnaya and rookie Darrin Reaves represent the Panthers' only healthy running backs. Therefore, Ogbonnaya could see significant playing time this weekend versus the Bears, although he'll likely fill a complementary role considering his limited knowledge of Carolina's playbook. In 16 games for the Browns last season, Ogbonnaya totaled 240 rushing yards on 49 carries and caught 48 passes for 343 receiving yards and three touchdowns.(RotoWire, )
