Panthers Injury Update: DeAngelo Williams out for Week 5

By on 10/02/2014 11:33:00 AM

DeAngelo Williams has been ruled out for Week 5, as tweeted by the Carolina Panthers' Twitter account yesterday.

The tweet stated that Williams has a high ankle sprain. The running back will get his cast off on Friday and will not play against the Chicago Bears Sunday.

The team was not sure earlier in the week if it was a foot or ankle injury. Since then, the team has confirmed it's a high ankle sprain. Let's face it, no injuries are good, but a high ankle sprain is a very touchy injury. The timetable can fluctuate a lot with this particular injury.

Williams has only played in two games this year because of injuries. His numbers this year are 25 carries for 106 yards and no touchdowns.

The Panthers' running game has been pretty much nonexistent this year, which only puts more pressure on Cam Newton. This will make his job that much harder.
