DeAngelo Williams out with thigh injury

The Panthers will be without running back DeAngelo Williams for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Williams has been deactivated by Carolina as he deals with a thigh injury. As a result, running back Jonathan Stewart is expected to start and get the majority of the work in the backfield.

As expected, quarterback Cam Newton is active and will start. Newton missed last week as he neared the end of his recovery for a hairline fracture in one of his ribs.
