Panthers Injury Update: DeAngelo Williams suffers sprained ankle

By on 9/30/2014 07:00:00 AM

Carolina Panthers starting running back DeAngelo Williams suffered an ankle injury during this past Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. Williams could potentially miss up to three weeks if tests come back positive.

The news was posted on Monday by the USA Today. The original text, however, is from the Associated Press.

According to the AP, “‘His foot's sore,’ Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday. ‘It doesn't look like it's anything structural, but it's sore. So he's probably going to start this week off as doubtful.’ Williams, who was seen in the locker room Monday wearing a walking boot on his left foot, will be evaluated later this week, Rivera said.”

Williams actually spoke with one of his charities, stating that his return could potentially be a few weeks away.
After rushing for 6,627 yards, 4.83 yards per carry and 46 rushing touchdowns during his career, Williams has rushed for just 106 yards this season after recovering from a hamstring injury.

With both Johnathan Stewart (sprained right knee), Fozzy Whitaker (quadriceps) and Williams all injured, the Panthers’ starting running back is currently up in the air. However, the Panthers posted via twitter Ron Rivera’s comments about potential free agent running backs.
The Panthers rushing corps seems to be decimated at the moment, the rest of the week will be crucial to see how readily available any of the Panthers running backs will be against the Bears this Sunday.
