Week 7: at Green Bay Packers
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Cam Newton (17/107/1 rushing) had as many rushes last weekend as the backup running backs managed (Fozzy Whittaker posted 9/25/1 rushing with 2/27/0 receiving, while Darrin Reaves managed 8/15/0 rushing and 1/4/0 receiving) as the Panthers battled the Bengals to a 37-37 tie. The injury news at midweek indicates that Jonathan Stewart is the 'starter' closest to returning for the Panthers, but he is no sure bet to play a full game in his first week back in game action. Frankly, unless you have Cam Newton on your roster, we'd advise you to avoid this backfield if you can do so. The Packers' rush D is ranked 32nd in the NFL averaging 154.5 yards allowed per game, with seven rushing scores handed out to date. Miami managed 23/112/1 rushing vs. Green Bay last week; Minnesota had 25/111/1 two games back. As you can see, the Packers' defensive front is getting a little stouter as the weeks go by, but they are far from solid even so. Two struggling units face off in this matchup - the injury situation remains ugly for the Panthers but this is a neutral matchup for Newton and his side-kicks Stewart, Whittaker and Reaves.

2014 Week 4 vs BAL (11 / 34 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
DeAngelo Williams made an encouraging start to this contest as the Panthers finally started to get some push up front. Williams showed excellent patience and was able to find small creases to finish runs well with second effort. However, his day was cut short when he scooted outside on a run in the second quarter. He seemed to be clipped on the ankle as he finished the run and came up limping. Although he tried to go back into the game and shake it off, the decision was made for him to sit the rest of the game. It is unknown how serious the injury is, but the Panthers' depth at running back continues to be tested to its limits.
