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.

Stephen Hill
News
The Panthers signed former Jets receiver Stephen Hill to the practice squad Tuesday, terminating the contract of linebacker D.J. Smith in a related move.

Hill, a second-round pick in 2012, caught 45 passes for 594 yards and four touchdowns in 23 games played over two seasons. With a wide-open depth chart at his position in Carolina, Hill has the opportunity to work his way into playing time if he can impress his new team on the practice field.

Charles Godfrey
News
Only two Panthers have been deemed any lower than questionable for the Sunday game in Baltimore. They are running back Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) and tackle Garry Williams (back).

Linebacker Thomas Davis (hip) and running back Jonathan Stewart (knee) are questionable while wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (thigh), cornerback Charles Godfrey (ankle), safety Roman Harper (knee) and running back DeAngelo Williams (thigh) are probable.

Josh Norman
News
Panthers cornerback Josh Norman was a healthy scratch on Sunday against Green Bay, according to the Charlotte Observer. The decision was not made because of the concussion he suffered in Week 5. Melvin White will start in his place against the Packers.
Injury
Concussion - Missed Week 7 at Green Bay
Carrington Byndom
News
The Panthers filled up their practice squad, signing cornerback Carrington Byndom, linebackers Adarius Glanton and D.J. Smith, receivers Tavarres King and Marcus Lucas, safety Robert Leste, running back Darrin Reaves, offensive tackle Andrew McDonald and defensive tackles Micanor Regis and Casey Walker.
Chris Ogbonnaya
News
The Panthers received some minor contributions from several role players in a Week 7 loss to he Packers. 

Chris Ogbonnaya worked behind Jonathan Stewart and only rushed for 12 yards on four carries. He was targeted once in the passing game and was held without a grab. Brandon Williams caught two of three targets for 22 yards. Ed Dickson took a step back and was held without a catch despite being targeted once in a 38-17 defeat.

Kelvin Benjamin
News
There was some concern about Kelvin Benjamin's availability entering Week 7, but he showed he has reached a rarified air in the 38-17 loss to the Packers.

Benjamin recovered from a concussion in time to take the field Sunday, and found a way to produce even during a quiet game for the Panthers' offense overall. He hauled in three of six passes thrown his way for 61 yards and a touchdown, in what is becoming a recurring scene. Benjamin has five receiving touchdowns through the first seven games of his career, becoming just the 18th player since 1970 to do so.

Benjamin has logged double digits in Fantasy scoring in five of seven games, and each game has included a touchdown. He is a huge weapon in the red zone, and has reached the point where he pretty much has to be in your starting lineup as long as he is active. 

Philly Brown
News
Panthers wide receiver Philly Brown was knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Packers in Week 7 with a concussion, according to the team's official website. Brown suffered the injury while returning a punt late in the third quarter and was unable to return. He was not targeted in the passing game.
Injury
Concussion - Left Week 7 at Green Bay
Thomas Davis
News
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.

Jonathan Stewart
News
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart returned from a three-game absence in Week 7 against the Packers and looked well enough that he should be the top option in the backfield moving forward.

Stewart racked up 55 yards on 14 carries in his best performance of the season, and added 12 yards on his lone reception. He looked healthy and ran the ball fairly well, though not so well that we should expect him to be a star moving forward. Those days seem to be well in the past for Stewart, who has not averaged 4.0 yards per carry in a season since 2011.

Stewart is a starting running back, though, and should continue to see the bulk of the playing time, so Fantasy owners looking for help will want to put in a claim for him. However, he probably won't be much use in Week 8, with a tough matchup against the Seahawks on the way. 

Kevin Matthews
News
The Panthers placed quarterback Matt Blanchard, tight end D.C. Jefferson and offensive lineman Kevin Matthews on injured reserve, ending their seasons. Receiver De'Andre Presley was placed on reserve/PUP, meaning he's ineligible for the first six games.

News

Cam Newton
News
Ron Rivera has proclaimed to the team website that Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is "playing the best he ever has."

Newton ranks in the middle of the pack among NFL quarterbacks in several statistical categories, but he is on the best pace of his career in passing yards and near his best in touchdowns and completion percentage.

Antoine Cason
News
Panthers cornerback Antoine Cason came down with his first interception of the season in his first game with his new team Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Luke Kuechly batted a pass thrown by Josh McCown and Cason benefited with an interception in the first quarter. Cason led the team with nine total tackles and two defended passes in a 20-14 victory.

A.J. Klein

The sack was Hardy's only tackle on the day. Klein finished with three, all solo.

Trai Turner
News
Panthers guard Trai Turner left Week 7 at Green Bay with a knee injury, the Charlotte Observer reports. Turner sustained the injury in first half and was taken to the locker room for further evaluation. His return is questionable.
Nate Chandler
News

They include running back Mike Tolbert (chest), offensive tackles Garry Williams (hip), Nate Chandler (toe) and Byron Bell (toe), defensive tackle Colin Cole (not injury-related), linebacker Thomas Davis (hip) and defensive tackle Dwan Edwards (back).

News

News
