Many Panthers pitch in with snags to Week 14 victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Seven Panthers caught three passes or less, though that was certainly enough for them to chip in to a blowout defeat of host New Orleans on Sunday.

The most significant made by one of the minor characters was that of running back Fozzy Whittaker, who helped his team pile on with a 26-yard touchdown catch and run late in the third quarter.

Also pitching in from the air were Philly Brown (3-42), Mike Tolbert (2-34), Ed Dickson (1-10), Jerricho Cotchery (1-9) and Brenton Bersin (1-9). Tolbert contributed 28 yards on five carries as well.


Panthers get minor contributions from several role players Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Panthers received minor contributions from several role players in Week 11 against Atlanta.

In the running game, Fozzy Whittaker carried the ball three times for 11 yards, and was held without a grab despite being targeted once in the passing game. In the passing game, Jerricho Cotchery caught two of the four passes thrown his way for 43 yards. Ed Dickson caught two passes for 20 yards.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The Panthers have made Thomas DeCoud, Byron Bell, Amini Silatolu, Trai Turner, Philly Brown, Bene Benwikere, and Fozzy Whittaker inactive Week 9 against the Saints.

DeCoud was considered questionable coming into the contest due to a hamstring injury. Brown had previously been ruled out due to a concussion. The other five players are healthy scratches.

(10/29/2014) The Panthers ruled out left tackle Byron Bell (knee), running back Fozzy Whittaker (thigh), wideout Philly Brown (concussion), and guards Amini Silatolu (calf) and Trai Turner (knee) for Thursday's game against the Saints.

Ogbonnaya was carted off the practice field with a groin injury on Friday, leaving his status for Sunday up in the air.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
