News: Coach Ron Rivera said Williams (thigh) had a good day at practice Friday, the Columbia State reports. Impact: Although Rivera's words are encouraging, the Sunday night kickoff for the Panthers makes it risky for Williams' owners to keep him active going into Sunday.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 19, 2014
News: Williams (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. Impact: Williams' limited Friday practice was his only practice showing all week, so he seems highly questionable for Sunday's game. If Williams can't go, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert will get the running back snaps again.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 19, 2014
News: Williams (thigh) participated in Friday's practice, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: It's not clear how much work Williams was able to do Friday, but he was back on the field after sitting out the previous two days. It's too early to tell if he will be able to play this week, but expect an update on his status when the Panthers release their injury report Friday afternoon.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (thigh) didn't practice Thursday but fit in significant work on the side, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. Impact: Despite missing practice for a second day in a row, coach Ron Rivera expressed optimism regarding Williams' status heading into the weekend, especially when compared with injured teammates Jason Avant (thigh) and Fozzy Whittaker (quadriceps). With a friendly matchup on tap Sunday night against the Steelers, who have allowed 340 rushing yards so far this season, Williams would be a decent RB option in Week 3, if he achieves active status.(RotoWire, )

News: Williams (thigh) didn't practice Wednesday, the Panthers' official site reports. Impact: Williams was expected to take part in drills Wednesday, with his sights set on active status Sunday versus the Steelers. However, with no activity to start the week of preparation, owners should monitor his status closely as the week rolls along. If he avoids a second absence in a row in Week 3, he'll have a juicy matchup at his fingertips against a Steelers run defense that's yielded 170 yards per game through two weeks.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 16, 2014
News: Williams (thigh) is expected to practice Wednesday and be ready for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, reports. Impact: Williams missed Carolina's Week 2 game due to a thigh issue, but should be fit to participate in practice this week. If all goes as expected, Williams has a favorable chance of playing Sunday versus a Pittsburgh defense that has allowed a league-high five yards per rush through two games thus far.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 15, 2014
News: Williams (thigh) is making progress in his return from the injury that prevented him from playing Sunday against the Lions. Impact: Williams missed Sunday's game, as well as practice last Thursday and Friday, while dealing with a thigh concern. The Panthers' running back worked out Monday and will be evaluated as the week unfolds. Given that situation, Wednesday's injury report should offer the first glimpse toward Williams' availability for Week 3 against the Steelers.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Williams (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Lions. Impact: Absent from practice both Thursday and Friday with a thigh concern, Williams will remain out of the backfield mix in Week 2, which doubles as Cam Newton's (ribs) season debut. Nevertheless, expect Jonathan Stewart to scoop up a fair amount of Williams' typical workload, with Mike Tolbert also in line for more touches.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport relays that Panthers coaches do not expect Williams (thigh) to play Sunday against the Lions. Impact: We'll verify Williams' status, either way, as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but if he is unable to suit up, Jonathan Stewart would be next in line for the Panthers' carries, with Mike Tolbert also in the mix.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Williams and fullback Mike Tolbert practiced and are expected to start Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Impact: Williams returned to work Friday after sitting out last week's game against Detroit with a hamstring injury. Tolbert was also back after taking a shot to his sternum in Week 2. Williams, who ran for 72 yards in the team's season opener against Tampa Bay, is listed as questionable on the injury report while Tolbert is probable.(STATS, 4:17pm)

News: Williams (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Impact: Williams missed the last couple days of practice with the injury, and it could prevent him from playing this Sunday -- head coach Ron Rivera said Williams will be held out if his burst his hampered on game day. If Williams is unable to go, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert figure to split the work in the Panthers' backfield.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Williams (thigh) was not spotted at the media portion of Friday's practice, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: It's possible Williams could get some work in behind the scenes Friday, but his absence from the early part of practice leaves his Week 2 status in doubt. Expect an update on Williams' status when Friday's injury report is released.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Williams didn't practice Thursday due to a sore thigh, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: After reporting no issue Wednesday, Williams was suddenly a non-participant in drills just one day later. The development is worrisome for the occasionally-injured back, who has missed 17 of 129 possible games in his eight-plus years in the league. As the week carries on, continue to watch his status closely.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Williams (undisclosed) wasn't in pads during practice Thursday, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Williams has missed at least one game in four of his eight seasons in the league, logging time in 112 of a possible 129 contests. The reason for Thursday's absence is unknown, so we won't assume that another DNP is imminent. However, his status should be confirmed once coach Ron Rivera speaks with the media following drills.(RotoWire, )
Sep 7, 2014
News: Williams had 14 carries for 72 yards in Sunday's 20-14 win at Tampa Bay. He was targeted just once in the passing game. Impact: Williams easily outperformed Jonathan Stewart, who had nine carries for only 20 yards. Stewart was involved more as a pass catcher, however, grabbing three passes for 17 yards. With Mike Tolbert also in the mix, especially around the goal line, it's hard to get too excited about Williams, despite his solid outing Sunday.(RotoWire, )
