Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (illness) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. A midweek illness is no big deal. Check back on Friday.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Stewart is expected to miss Week 4 and possibly another three games, per Ron Rivera. Cameron Artis-Payne should continue to lead the backfield in carries. He saw 48% of the running back touches, gaining a respectable 58 total yards against a very good Minnesota defense. This week, he faces the Falcons, who are #27 in RB aFPA. This is speculation, but Cam Newton is dealing with a foot injury, so the Panthers may be more inclined to hand the ball to CAP around the goal line.
