Chicago Tribune - [Full Article]

Bears RB Matt Forte had 363 touches last season, the second most of his career. It was the first season since 2009 in which he had more than 300. As he approaches his 29th birthday in December, let's see whether the increased contact affects his power, explosiveness and endurance. In training camp and exhibition games, at least, it seems logical for the Bears to get Forte the work he needs but not a touch more.

Besides, the backs behind Forte need repetitions to answer many questions. As is the norm with backups, those center on pass protection.

RB KaDeem Carey commands the brightest spotlight. GM Phile Emery evaluates two criteria: toughness and reactive instincts for finding the correct defensive rusher. Carey "has shown that repetitively," Emery said after the Bears drafted him.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bears RB1 job still belongs to Forte, but it's a good sign Carey is gaining at least a little praise for his pass protection early on. With Michael Bush gone, Carey appears next in line for work if something were to happen to Forte. According to this story, he's considered a roster lock. Tony Fiammetta is considered a good bet while Michael Ford, Shaun Draughn, Jordan Lynch and Senorise Perry are competing for one spot.

Charlotte Observer - [Full Article]

Three Panthers running backs -- Deangelo Williams (ankle), Jonathan Stewart (Achilles) and Tyrell Sutton (calf) missed Wednesday's practice. They were joined on the sidelines by quarterback Jake Delhomme (finger) and cornerback Richard Marshall (ankle).

That left rookie Mike Goodson as the only running back at practice, although fullbacks Brad Hoover and Tony Fiammetta were out there.

Stewart routinely doesn't practice on Wednesdays. Williams left Sunday's game against Minnesota in the first half after apparently re-injuring the same ankle that kept him out of the Panthers' game against Tampa Bay on Dec. 6.

Panthers RB Williams questionable with knee

Friday, November 13, 2009, 1:51pm - [Full Article]

Carolina running back Deangelo Williams is questionable for the Panthers' game against Atlanta with a sore left knee.

Williams sat out practice Friday for the second time in three days. He was limited in Thursday's workout.

William ranks fifth in the NFL with 768 yards rushing, including 307 in the past two games.

Fellow running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles' tendon), receiver Muhsin Muhammad (knee), tight end Dante Rosario (knee) and fullback Tony Fiammetta (concussion) are all listed as questionable for Sunday's game. But all four players practiced Friday.

Fullback Brad Hoover and safety Charles Godfrey are doubtful and haven't practiced all week because of ankle injuries.

Deangelo Williams has "tweaked his knee"

Thursday, November 12, 2009, 10:54am - [Full Article]

Panthers Fullback Brad Hoover's going to be out for another few weeks at least, but running backs Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart were out of Wednesday practice as well, leaving them just rookies Mike Goodson, Tyrell Sutton and Tony Fiammetta in practice.

Wednesdays off are common for Stewart, who's battled soreness in his Achilles tendon all year. But Williams absence was rare.

“He kind of tweaked his knee,” coach John Fox said. “It's something we'll evaluate day-to-day and see where it brings us tomorrow.”

Gaston Gazette - [Full Article]

Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has a torn ACL in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season, according to a team spokesman.

Other than Davis, the Panthers came out of Sunday's game without any additional injuries. Fox had no update on the status of the five players who were held out of Sunday's game -- receiver Muhsin Muhammad, tight end Dante Rosario, fullbacks Brad Hoover and Tony Fiammetta and free safety Charles Godfrey.

Friday, November 6, 2009, 6:19pm


Panthers RB Brad Hoover (ankle out) has been ruled out RB Tony Fiammetta (concussion questionable) did not practice Friday. There is rumor Jeff King could possibly fill in at FB with Hoover out if Fiammetta cannot go.
