  Panthers | Hoover could miss a few weeks    Wed Nov 4, 11:47 AM

Darin Gantt, of the Rock Hill Herald, reports Carolina Panthers FB Brad Hoover (ankle) will likely miss a few weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 8. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Hoover is expected to miss several games.

Footballguys view: Hoover thought his right ankle was broken, but X-Rays revealed only the dreaded high ankle sprain. Hoover is a sound lead blocker and projections for both DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart have to be adjusted slightly downward with this news. Carolina's backup fullback - rookie Tony Fiammetta - is questionable this week because of a concussion.

  Panthers | Battle at fullback brewing    Wed Jun 24, 12:04 AM

Steve Reed, of CarolinaGrowl.com, reports Carolina Panthers FB Brad Hoover will be challenged for the starting fullback duties by rookie FB Tony Fiammetta, a fifth-round draft choice. Hoover is used to having to fight to keep his job, but he turns 33 this season and his body has taken some abuse over the last 10 seasons. Hoover said he's trying to show Fiammetta the ropes, but noted he isn't showing the rookie everything. Hoover said both players need to approach the situation as if they're fighting for a position.

Footballguys view: Carolina spending a relatively high pick for a fullback selection on Fiammetta is a great sign for DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. It means that they are not going to miss a beat if the battle-tested Hoover drops off anytime soon.

  Panthers | Competition at fullback    Tue Jun 2, 01:15 PM

Steve Reed, of CarolinaGrowl.com, reports Carolina Panthers FB Brad Hoover will have to fight off FB Tony Fiammetta for the team's starting fullback spot.

Footballguys view: 'Tony is a good guy, a great guy,' Hoover said. 'I'm trying to show him the ropes - but not everything. There has been no indication of how they want to approach it. The way we both have to approach it is we're fighting for a position and (knowing) this is a competition.' Rookie FB Tony Fiammetta was thought by many in the scouting community to be the best at his position in this draft class. He has overall versatility, is a very tough player plus he's a great character kid that has football intelligence.
