Panthers’ Williams out with foot injury
Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has not made
the trip to St. Louis and will miss Sunday’s game against the Rams
with an injured foot.
Williams hobbled off the field in the final minute of Carolina’s
win over San Francisco last weekend and hasn’t practiced since. The
team has provided no update on the injury and Williams hasn’t
talked to reporters.
Saturday’s decision means Jonathan Stewart will likely get the
start against the Rams as the Panthers try to jump-start the
league’s 23rd-ranked rushing offense.
After Williams rushed for more than 1,100 yards last season, the
2009 Pro Bowl selection has been held to 361 yards on 87 carries.
Stewart has 148 yards on 50 carries.
Mike Goodson will likely be the No. 2 back Sunday.
