From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Sep 22): Williams was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday last week and was limited on Friday due to his injured thigh, and he was inactive on Sunday night after being listed as questionable to play on Friday. Coach Ron Rivera sounded optimistic that Williams would be back for week 4.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 22): Williams gets upgraded without even playing because Jonathan Stewart (knee) and Mike Tolbert (leg) look like they will be out for a month. Williams is still just a low RB2/flex, but he'll get all the touches he can handle at Baltimore.

2014 Week 1 vs TB (14 / 72 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Carrying the bulk of the load for the Panthers in a run-heavy contest, DeAngelo Williams did not look a day past 25 as he weaved his way through a stubborn Bucs defense with great effect. Williams showed excellent burst getting to the corner and appeared fresh as he powered through contact for extra yards between the tackles. Not utilised as much as his compatriot Stewart in the passing attack, Williams was nonetheless a solid blocker. Williams consistently made the most of his runs and even in the face of a well coached Tampa defense managed to find creases. He got the call in the red zone on the Panthers' only red zone possession, but was stuffed for no gain as the Bucs got good penetration.
