WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) made the trip to Wisconsin, per team official. All signs point to him playing Sunday vs. Packers.

Fantasy Impact:

As we stated earlier, the Panthers play early on Sunday, so we'll know if there are any last-minute setbacks by around noon. His absence would be a downgrade for QB Cam Newton and an upgrade for TE Greg Olsen and WR Jerricho Cotchery, but at this point he looks like he's going to play.

DeAngelo Williams OUT for Week 7

The Panthers have downgraded the status of running back DeAngelo Williams to out for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

The team said Saturday that running back Fozzy Whittaker, is also out.

Fantasy Impact:

Both were listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report. As we stated earlier this week: Jonathan Stewart (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 7. Stewart is expected to start in a nice matchup against the Packers. In 11 games that Stewart played without DeAngelo Williams from 2009 to 2010, he averaged over 100 total yards, and provided decent production in his starting stint earlier this season. Consider him a RB3/flex type since the Panther running game isn’t exactly firing on all cylinders.

Panthers RB Darrin Reaves (calf, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 7. Reaves is now looking doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Packers. Chris Ogbonnaya would back up Jonathan Stewart, who is expected to make his return this week.
