Carolina running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart are active against Miami despite nagging injuries. Williams missed practice Wednesday with a sore left knee. Stewart was held out a day earlier with a sore left Achilles' tendon. Both were listed as questionable for Thursday's game. The Panthers were without reserve defensive end Charles Johnson (pectoral), fullback Brad Hoover (ankle) and safety Charles Godfrey (ankle). Dolphins left guard Justin Smiley (shoulder) was active, but he was replaced in the starting lineup by Nate Garner. Reserve safety Tyrone Culver was active despite being questionable with an ankle injury. Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano (hip) missed his second straight game.
