Panthers coach Ron Rivera said RB DeAngelo Williams has fractured finger. Day-to-day situation. Rivera said he possibly can play with it once swelling is down.
If Williams misses time, Jonathan Stewart would be in line for more work, and did look pretty good in Week 13 despite the loss to Minnesota. He finished with 12 carries for 85 yards while adding two catches and could make for a nice pickup for a road game at New Orleans in Week 14. It's a situation to monitor, because if Williams is a go, it would go back to the dreaded committee situation for the Carolina backs.
