On Monday, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera had some encouraging news about Carolina's battered backfield.

"Mike Tolbert is OK. He is a little sore," Rivera said. "We'll see how he progresses with his treatment. "He kind of hyperventilated on the field because he couldn't get a clean gasp of air. He's pretty sore because he took a nice shot to the sternum."

Fozzy Whittaker pulled his quad, and Rivera classified the injury as "week-by-week."

DeAngelo Williams is expected to return to practice this week.

"DeAngelo is looking pretty good," Rivera said. "We'll see how he is on Wednesday on the practice field."
