The Panthers run game has had issues all season getting going, and Sunday they will likely go at it without running back DeAngelo Williams, who is listed as doubtful with a foot injury.
Williams has missed his third straight practice and the team seems ready to move on without him. Williams hobbled off in the final minute of Carolina’s win over San Francisco last Sunday.
Williams is Carolina’s top rusher with 361 yards on 87 carries. But he’s far behind last year’s pace, when he and Jonathan Stewart each rushed for over 1,100 yards.
Stewart, who has just 148 yards on 50 carries, and Mike Goodson are in line to get most of the carries against the Rams if Williams is sidelined.
