Carolina backfield banged up
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Carolina's DeAngelo Williams is doubtful and fellow running back Jonathan Stewart questionable for the Panthers' season finale Sunday against New Orleans.
Williams missed Friday's workout and hasn't played or practiced since spraining his left ankle in the first quarter against Minnesota on Dec. 20. Stewart returned to practice Friday after sitting out the past two days to rest his sore left Achilles' tendon. Both have rushed for more than 1,000 yards this season.
Backup running back Tyrell Sutton missed Friday's shortened practice and is also doubtful with an ankle injury.
Quarterback Matt Moore (rib), receiver Muhsin Muhammad (ankle), cornerback Richard Marshall (ankle), and right tackle Geoff Schwartz (groin) are listed as questionable, but all practiced Friday.
