Mike Tolbert placed on IR/Return

National Football Post - [Full Article]

The Carolina Panthers placed fullback Mike Tolbert on the injured reserve-designated to return list on Tuesday, putting him out of commission until at least Week 13.

Tolbert suffered a hairline fracture in his knee in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh.

This is a hit to a Panthers running game that has been bitten by the injury bug early. DeAngelo Williams suffered a thigh injury and has missed the past two weeks. Jonathan Stewart sprained his knee and his status could be in doubt for this week's game against Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact: 

Williams is expected back this week however and would be in line for a big workload with Stewart's status very much in doubt.
