Kevin Greene
News
The 49ers made several moves to trim the roster to 75 players Monday.

The team waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punt Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie, while also releasing wide receiver David Reed.

Linebacker Blake Costanzo was released from the Injured Reserve list.

Colin Jones
News
The Panthers extended the contracts of defensive end Mario Addison, safety Colin Jones and offensive tackle Nate Chandler. The team made the announcement on Wednesday. 

Addison received a two-year extension following three seasons of work in which he totaled 3.5 sakcs and 36 total tackles, most of which came on special teams. Jones also got a two-year extension and has similarly contributed on special teams, tallying 27 total tackles over 44 games. 

Chandler got a three-year extension and should begin the season as a starting tackle for the Panthers. 

Fernando Velasco
News
The Panthers signed center Fernando Velasco, who started 11 games for the Steelers last year.
Roman Harper
News
The Panthers have flashed the green light for three players that had been designated as probable for their Week 16 game against Cleveland, including quarterback Cam Newton (back). Also ready to roll are linebacker Thomas Davis (knee) and safety Roman Harper (thigh).

Colin Cole
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.

Amini Silatolu
News
A trio of Panthers that had been deemed questionable for the Sunday game against the visiting Browns have been ruled out, including running back DeAngelo Williams (hand). The others are guard Amini Silatolu and linebacker A.J. Klein, both with knee ailments.

News
The Panthers put tight end Richie Brockel (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season, and re-signed cornerback James Dockery, the team announced. Dockery played in five games for Carolina last year and was cut right before this season.
Injury
Ankle - IR. Out for season
Brian Folkerts
News
The Panthers made a few roster moves Wednesday. They signed center Brian Folkerts and wide receiver Marvin McNutt to the active roster, while also signing linebacker Ben Jacobs and linebacker Jeff Tapinian to the practice squad.
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.

Martin Wallace
News
The Browns claimed two more players off waivers, wideout LaRon Byrd from the Cowboys and offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann from the Seahawks. In addition, Cleveland waived offensive linemen Karim Barton and Martin Wallace and wideout Charles Johnson.
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.
Carrington Byndom
News
A quartet of injured Panthers have landed on their inactive list for the Sunday game against the Browns. Among them are running back DeAngelo Williams (hand), cornerback Carrington Byndom (hamstring), linebacker A.J. Klein (knee) and guard Amini Silatolu (knee).

The healthy scratches are safety Robert Lester, defensive tackle Kyle Love and offensive tackle David Foucault.

Kelvin Benjamin
News
No Panthers receivers totaled more than five receptions for 47 yards Sunday against Cleveland, but a trio did make decent contributions.

Kelvin Benjamin finished with five catches for 47 yards, including an acrobatic 18-yarder in the second quarter. Fellow wideout Jerricho Cotchery added 46 yards on five receptions while tight end Ed Dickson had two catches for 44 yards. Among them was a huge 34-yarder with time ticking off the clock that iced the victory.

Philly Brown
News
Several Panthers made small contributions to a key win Sunday against Cleveland. Among them was running back Mike Tolbert, who rushed for 19 yards on seven carries. Fozzy Whittaker added five yards on his lone carry.

The others did their minor damage through the air. Philly Brown caught two passes for 22 yards while fellow wide receiver Brenton Bersin snagged one for 14 yards.

Thomas Davis
News
The Panthers have flashed the green light for three players that had been designated as probable for their Week 16 game against Cleveland, including quarterback Cam Newton (back). Also ready to roll are linebacker Thomas Davis (knee) and safety Roman Harper (thigh).

Jonathan Stewart
News
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is closing out the season with a flourish, as he rushed for 100-plus yards for the second time in three games in Week 16's 17-13 win over the Browns.

Stewart bounced back from a subpar Week 15 by rushing the ball 24 times for 122 yards. The latter is his second-best mark of the season, and he also added his first receiving touchdown of the year, on two catches and 7 yards.

Stewart has really come on strong over the last four games, and has taken on a larger share of the work as a result of DeAngelo Williams' injury. He is averaging 109.3 yards per game over that stretch, and now has 760 yards on the season, his second-best total since 2011. Watching him take on a bigger workload while remaining healthy has to be a good sign for his value moving forward in his career, and he should probably be viewed as a must-start Fantasy option in Week 17 against the Falcons. 

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

Kelvin Benjamin finished with five catches for 47 yards, including an acrobatic 18-yarder in the second quarter. Fellow wideout Jerricho Cotchery added 46 yards on five receptions while tight end Ed Dickson had two catches for 44 yards. Among them was a huge 34-yarder with time ticking off the clock that iced the victory.

DeAngelo Williams
News
Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Falcons and is being listed as probable. 

Williams has missed the last three games for Carolina while dealing with a broken bone in his hand. He has 219 yards on 62 carries in six games this year.

Linebacker A.J. Klein is considered questionable for the game with an akle injury.

The Panthers are 3-point underdogs against Atlanta.

News
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.

News

News
Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly will not be fined for making contact with an official during his team's Week 7 loss to the Packers, NFL.com reports.

Kuechly was ejected from Sunday's game after the incident, which the linebacker contends happened because he wasn't aware it was an official pulling him from behind after a play.

Stewart attempted to get through practice this week despite a knee injury. The other six players are healthy scratches.

Charles Johnson
News
Vikings wide receiver Charles Johnson put together another big game in Week 14 against the Jets, and has to be on all Fantasy radars down the stretch.

Johnson, a seventh-round pick who bounced around on two different rosters, has found a home for the future in Minnesota. He hauled in four of eight passes thrown of his way Sunday, leading the team in targets, and finished second with 103 yards, the first 100-yard performance of his career. More than half of the yards came on a 56-yard touchdown, his second in three games.

Johnson started to see his role increase in Week 11, when he had six receptions for 87 yards. In four games since, he is averaging 9.8 Fantasy points per game in standard scoring, thanks to a pair of touchdowns and 283 yards in four games.

Johnson's limited track record of success still makes him hard to rely on, however if you are in need of help at the wide receiver position for the final few weeks of the season, Johnson is well worth a pickup. He should also be viewed as a must-add player in all dynasty or keeper leagues. 

Joe Webb
News
The Panthers announced defensive back James Dockery, tackle David Foucault, safety Robert Lester, defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, offensive lineman Amini Silatolu, defensinve tackle Micanor Regis and quarterback Joe Webb are inactive for Week 13 against the Colts.

Derek Anderson
News
Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters that quarterback Cam Newton did every drill in Thursday's practice and is "on target" to start Sunday against the Browns. Rivera indicated Newton probably will start but said he did not want to get ahead of himself and noted there's still a lot of time until kickoff.

Newton sustained two small fractures in his back when he was involved in a car crash nine days ago. On Wednesday he split reps with Derek Anderson, and on Thursday, Newton handled the bulk of the first-team snaps.

Newton has accounted for 19 touchdowns and 16 turnovers in 12 games. With Newton now fully expected to play, the Panthers have been installed as 3-point favorites at most Vegas sportsbooks.

Jerricho Cotchery

Kelvin Benjamin finished with five catches for 47 yards, including an acrobatic 18-yarder in the second quarter.
