by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Panthers list lengthy injury report for game at Green Bay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Panthers listed a lengthy injury report on Friday, which included five players on the report due to non-injury related reasons leading up to Sunday's Week 7 clash at Green Bay. Those players were defensive tackle Colin Cole, linebacker Thomas Davis, defensive tackle Dwan Edwards, safety Roman Harper and defensive end Charles Johnson. They were all deemed probable for the game.

Meanwhile, running back DeAngelo Williams (ankle), running back Fozzy Whittaker (thigh), guard Amini Silatolu (calf), linebacker Chase Blackburn (knee) and cornerback Bene' Benwikere (ankle) all did not practice Friday and were ruled doubtful for Sunday.

Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) and running back Darrin Reaves (calf) were the only two players deemed questionable. Running back Jonathan Stewart (knee), tight end Greg Olsen (ankle) and cornerback Josh Norman (concussion) were all ruled probable for Sunday's game.


Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker records TD before getting hurt Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Panthers running back Fozzy Whittaker recorded his first career rushing touchdown and third career score Week 6 at Cincinnati. But it wasn't all good news for Whittaker, who suffered a leg injury in the second half.

Whittaker's rushing touchdown came on a 4-yard carry in the third quarter, which tied the game at 17. He had nine carries for 25 yards and two catches for 27 yards before leaving the game.

Whittaker got the start Sunday as DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart were both sidelined due to injuries.


Panthers without Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (knee) joined running back DeAngelo Williams (ankle) on the sidelines for Week 6 against the Bengals, as Stewart was ruled inactive Sunday after Williams was already ruled out Friday.

Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya are expected to split the reps at running back with Stewart and Williams sidelined. However, Whittaker is expected to start, according to The Charlotte Observer. Reaves was cleared to play after being listed as probable due to a hip injury.


Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker closer to being 100 percent this week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Panthers head coach Ron Rivera told reporters that running back Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) was active but was viewed as the emergency option for the team in a Week 5 home victory over the Bears on Sunday, according to the Associated Press Monday. Whittaker is closer to being back at 100 percent heading into Week 6 at Cincinnati, per Rivera. 

Hard to find value in Panthers backfield


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Panthers had to go deep into their depth chart at running back in Week 5 against the Bears, and it does not look like they unearthed any gems for Fantasy owners.

Darrin Reaves got the bulk of the work, as expected, but he didn't do much with it. He rushed the ball 11 times for just 35 yards, while adding one reception out of the backfield. Chris Ogbonnaya surprisingly received the backup work and found the end zone, but was unproductive all-around, racking up just 24 yards total. Fozzy Whittaker did not touch the ball in the loss.

From a Fantasy perspective, you are probably better off just waiting for Jonathan Stewart or DeAngelo Williams to come back than adding any of these guys at this point. The Panthers have had trouble getting anything going with the running game this season, and it doesn't seem like Reaves, Ogbonnaya or Whittaker are going to get them out of their slump. 


Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker set to play Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) With a shot at significant playing time, Panthers running back Fozzy Whittaker is ready to roll Sunday with the Bears in town despite a thigh ailment. He had been listed as probable.


Two questionable for Panthers with Sunday game looming


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Defensive end Charles Johnson (hip) is one of two Panthers deemed questionable for the Sunday battle against visiting Chicago. The other is tight end Ed Dickson, who is also dealing with a hip issue.

Ruled out are tight end Richie Brockel (ankle) and running back DeAngelo Williams. Fellow running back Jonathan Stewart (knee) is doubtful while linebacker Thomas Davis (hip), cornerback Melvin White (thigh) and running back Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) are all probable.


Fozzy Whittaker appears to be top back Sunday for Panthers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The injury-ravaged Panthers backfield is likely to have unheralded Fozzy Whittaker as its featured runner Sunday against Chicago. DeAngelo Williams (ankle has been ruled out while Jonathan Stewart (knee) is doubtful.

Whittaker, who had been dealing with a thigh injury, has yet to carry the ball this season. His lone attempts came with Cleveland last year, when he rushed for 79 yards on 28 carries.


Panthers expected to use three-man rotation at RB Week 5


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Thursday running back Fozzy Whittaker, who has missed two straight games due to a thigh injury, looked good in practice and took all of his reps.

Rivera said earlier in the week Darrin Reaves was the default starter due to injuries at the position, but on Thursday he said "we'll see" when asked if Reaves will start Week 5 against the Bears.

Rivera added the running game Sunday will likely be a three-man rotation between Reaves, Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya.

Panthers keeping tabs on status of Jonathan Stewart, Fozzy Whittaker


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) After losing running back DeAngelo Williams to an ankle injury Sunday against the Ravens, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday the team will look at a few free agent running backs as an "insurance policy." However, Rivera noted Fozzy Whittaker might be ready to return from a thigh injury Week 5 vs. Chicago.

Rivera added he expects Whittaker to practice Wednesday, but he was not as certain about the status of Jonathan Stewart, who also sat out Sunday with a knee injury. Darrin Reaves is in line to start at running back against Chicago.


Report: DeAngelo Willams considered week to week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Fozzy Whittaker scores in last game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Browns running back Fozzy Whittaker scored his second touchdown of the season in the team's finale Sunday, in a 20-7 Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

Whittaker hauled in two receptions for 38 yards, the majority of which came on his touchdown. He scored from 35 yards out in the fourth quarter to give the Browns their lone score of the game.

Whittaker made much more of an impact through the passing game this season, where he finished with 155 yards on 21 receptions. He added 79 yards on 28 carries. 


Fozzy Whittaker has five yards in loss


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Browns running back Fozzy Whittaker had one carry for one yard in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Bears. He caught two passes for four yards, and was targeted twice. 

Whittaker was third in touches among Browns running backs Sunday -- Edwin Baker had 12 touches, and Chris Ogbonnaya had 10. 

The Browns face the Jets in Week 16. 


Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker are interesting Week 15 options


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Browns running back Chris Ogbonnaya has seen his production decrease steadily over the last four games, dropping from a season-high 69 rushing yards in Week 11 to eight yards in Week 14. The drop was likely hastened by fumbles in consecutive games (in Weeks 11 and 12). 

Complicating Ogbonnaya's value in Week 15 is Willis McGahee's health and the presence of Fozzy Whittaker. The Browns have a dream matchup against the Bears, who have given up eight straight 100-yard games to running backs, with three backs running for 130 or more in the last four. And McGahee was concussed at the end of Sunday's game against New England.

While this would seem to open the door for Ogbonnaya, his recent production dip may point to an increased role for Whittaker. The Browns know what they have in Ogbonnaya; they have yet to give Whittaker more than nine touches in a game. And while Ogbannaya has pretty much doubled Whittaker's snap percentage, there's always the possibility that Whittaker slides into McGahee's role, while Ogbonnaya stays put in his. 

The simplest way for events to play out would be for McGahee to play in Week 15. But if he's out, it becomes a logical move (to start Ogbonnaya) versus a huge upside gamble (starting Whittaker) against the league's most permissive run defense. 


Several Browns make minor contributions on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Many bit players had a role in the dramatic loss for the Browns at New England on Sunday. Among them were running backs Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya, both of whom caught three passes and rushed four times. The former managed 18 yards receiving and 6 yards rushing. The latter had 25 yards through the air and 8 on the ground.

The leading rusher was Willis McGahee, who ran for 33 yards on 14 carries. Adding receptions were Greg Little (2-14), Davone Bess (1-10) and MarQueis Gray (1-3).


Several Browns make their mark in Week 13 loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Browns wideout Greg Little has done little all year and he did little again Sunday outside of a 5-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. He finished with two catches for 9 yards.

Little was one of several minor contributors in the loss to the Jaguars. Fellow wideout Davone Bess added three catches for 28 yards while running back Chris Ogbonnaya ran seven times for 20 yards and managed two catches for 14 more. Running back Fozzy Whittaker rushed for 15 yards on seven attempts and snagged a 1-yard pass.


Several Browns do little in lopsided loss to Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Wideout Davone Bess and running back Fozzy Whittaker led a large contingent of Browns who contributed little offensively in a horrid effort Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Bess managed 27 yards on five receptions while Whittaker added 16 yards on six carries and one catch for 5 yards. Also working his way into the stat sheet was wideout Greg Little with two receptions for 17 yards.
